This would not be a problem if you use stakes in the back

really looking forward to receiving my Boggy Creek Eliminator.
I have had so many problems with hogs destroying my landscaping
in my yard. Here are a handful of photos that were all
taken on the same day in by my Stealth Cam. In the next
few photos, you will see what the hogs did in one night
to my yard. Unfortunately, I'm trying to sell this house
and I'm presently not living there. My only hope is to
capture this herd of hogs or to fence my yard.
this picture, with the deer, you can see that
my grass is in fairly good shape. I had
already repaired it a couple of times from hog damage,
but it looks fine.

decides to feast in my zoysia grass. I know
I have some grubs, but I never figured it was
enough to feed this many hogs.
hours later, you can see the damage they
have done. It took hours to repair this and cost me
over $500 in labor and replacing landscaping. You
can see that I left lights on in the house, on the
porch and there is a huge floodlight on the
pole next to the house.

Gold Wild Boar Attractant
Gold is an environmentally safe wild
boar scent attractant. It is designed to be
used as a rub and is best when applied to the
side of a tree or post or when poured on the
edge of a recently used wallow. Both hunters
and trappers alike have had great success bringing
in boars with Black Gold!
Black Gold stand apart from other boar attractants
is that it contains no salt. Hogs do not sweat
and therefore cannot handle salt. Most other
hog attractants have salt listed as their first
As a scent
attractant or rub, Black Gold can be used in
most states that forbid baiting because boars
are attracted to the strong scent and want to
rub and roll in the pungent odor. Always check
local and state game laws before using any attractant.
