HOGS

Before it started raining, I had about 8 snares set at hog crossings of fences.  Normally, I would try to check them daily.  With the wet, I was not able to get out there to check snares for about two weeks; did so today.  Found TWO hog remains and about four snares that had to be reset.  When a hog dies trying to escape the snare, he ruins the snare.  SO, I just ordered three more dozen snares.  About $3 each but well worth it for a high catch rate. 

Added later.  The first photo shows sparse remains of a hog.  The second shows a snare set and ready to catch.  The third shows a large hog that about 20 vultures had been working on when I approached this afternoon.  Yesterday, the hog was much bigger and did not stink.
