Most ranchers, at some point in time, have hog problems. We have never had a problem with hogs on the Priefert ranch until recently when the neighbors started clear cutting. Fortunately, I had my Wildlife Feeder programmed to close between 11:30pm and 4:30am. If it had been open, the hogs would have figured out that this was a good place to eat.
Not only do I have my feeder programmed, but I took it a step further. The panels shown in the "solution" image keep the hogs a safe distance from the feeder so that the deer can still come and eat. Check out my wildlife feeder and hog panels on the Priefert Wildlife website.
