Boggy Creek Hog Gates


Here is the Hotwood's Hog Gate in action.
Carlton Musgrove from Cullman, Alabama had a good day when he checked this trap site.
Carlton notes that when using lures the Russian Mix he purchased from Hotwood's
was the difference when it came to really bringing in the hogs.

The Boggy Creek Eliminator

Designed with help from State Wildlife Control Services, this light weight hog trap gate lends a new twist to an already proven design.

Designed to lag into wood posts or to be used with steel "T" Posts or can be adapted to any situation you may have.

How the Eliminator works...

A trip line attaches to the front of the door
hanger and then to the rear of the pen. When the hog hits the line the 3 doors go down. It is nearly impossible for any hog to get out through the door after it closes.

Feral Hog Trap

The light weight aluminum doors allow even the smallest hog to get in.

The 3-door design allows all sizes of hogs to enter after the trip line has been released and the doors are to the down position. Allowing one at a time or multiples to enter while eliminating the chance of other hogs escaping.

The door opening is 34" tall x 38" wide. Each door is approximately 12" wide. Allowing you to trap all sizes of hogs. Overall height is 68".

You will find this gate to be very user friendly and extremely durable.

This trap was setup in South East Oklahoma, near Soper. (The wild hog paradise.)

Shown is the saloon style gate set up with the ever popular 3 door drop style gate. These pens were
12' x 12' x 5' tall. Made from heavy hog panel gates
and designed to work with our all aluminum hog gates.

Day one we went to the site where the hogs have been seen regularly, set up our pens and used shelled corn for bait.

Feral Hog Trap

After setting up the pens with the gates side by side we tossed the corn very loosely around inside the pen as shown in the pictures.

We used tie cables to the back of the pen that we found after our first catch we should have used a stake in the back of the pen instead of tying to the panel as the first hogs trapped released the second door on the other pen from hitting the gates and tripping the cable to the pen beside them. This would not be a problem if you use stakes in the back of the pen or did not have the pens side by side as we did.

"The gates were a great success as we caught six pigs the first night. The biggest hog would have weighed in the 180 to 200 lb. area and really seemed to put the pen to the test."

"After having at least 7 hogs at one time in the trap each
of the past 4 nights, I was a little disappointed to have only
trapped this one sow. The good news is she was pregnant
with 3 or 4 more. I couldnít get her to hold still near the
Boggy Creek Eliminator, but this photo didnít come out too bad.
She weighed in at 93 pounds, field dressed this morning.
Looks like we will have another good bunch of
sausage and pork chops." ~ David

Boggy Creek Saloon Style

Doors are held open by cable rod attached to rear of pen. As soon as the hogs hit the cable the doors go shut.

The Saloon Style Hog Gate - now without the center bar for a more open feeling for the hog when entering the pen.

The opening through the doors is 36" wide by 37 1/2" inches high.

Singles or multiples can enter as they want through the spring loaded saloon doors.

This unit breaks down for UPS shipping. It also can break down for storage or ease of hauling.

All aluminum, easy to handle as shown in picture. Weighs less than 55lbs.

One of our customers in Pauline, SC used cattle panels from local supplier and welded heavy hog panels on the inside of cattle panel. This makes for a very easy to haul set up and catch wild pigs.


Email from one of our customers:
I'm 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.

In 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.

The first hog shows up in the camera at
about half past midnight.

Less than an hour later, the whole family arrives and
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.

Three 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.

I built this hog pen to the specifications I found
on your web site and per the advice that you gave me. I used heavy duty utility panels
5 ft. high and 16 ft. wide with 4"x4" squares. I'm anxious to get my Boggy Creek Eliminator
added to capture these pests.

This sow was just under 200 pounds on the ground. Her pork chops were very tasty and the sausage turned out excellent.

These rolls are very convienent to keep in your truck around the farm or in the shop.
Easy to handle and store than the old 36" rolls we all had tangled up in the back of the pickup for years.
Very convienent, easy to handle and store. This is the same # 9 support wire we use in our trapping video.
This wire is what we use to support all of our snares.
The small roll is so handy when working in the terrain most problem animals live in.
Our customers have been asking for this and here it is.

Here is what can happen on the edge of town in a new subdivision with the
help of our 4 legged plows that we want to help you control.

Feral Boar Trap

Manufactured completely from aluminum, the Boggy Creek Eliminator and Boggy Creek Saloon Style gates are easy to lift and carry.

After working with various State agencies, we found standard steel hog trapswere just too heavy and difficult to move. Therefore, we built these gates entirely out of aluminum to make them very easy to install and move.

Easy to handle. Easy to move.

Weighs less than 55lbs.

Phil and Dr Steve White have used four 5 foot x 16 foot cattle panels to form a round pen. When not using a top to the pen, always make sure your pen is round so the hogs canít pile up in the corner and escape. T-posts are installed every 4í.

Phil attaching the trip cable to the rooter gate trip bar.

Above Phil is checking the trip cable to make sure
everything is working smooth.

Time to scatter corn from 4' in front of the trap and in through the doorway. A pair of holes 2' deep are dug and filled with corn under the rooter cable trip wire.

The doors will be wired open until the hogs are hitting
the bait nightly and are comfortable with going
into the trap. We want as many hogs in the trap
the first time as possible.

Phil is shown above wiring the rooter gate to the t-post
in four places with number 9 wire.

Phil is adding additional corn bait leading in
through the gate door.

Lastly, Phil is pouring some black gold on a dead log
to finish off a pen set.

We will drive post every 4í around the pen and this hog pen is ready to go.

Available in two colors.

Black Gold Wild Boar Attractant

Black 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!

What makes 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 ingredient.

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.
