Hog Master 1/8" Snare

Our Hog Master 1/8" snare is made of Heavy Duty 7x7 aircraft cable to take on the biggest hogs in open country with little entanglement.

It includes an adjustable tie-off end to make attaching to brush or a stake quick and easy. The wammy support collar is for ease of supporting your snare in brush or in the open with #9 soft black support wire.

This snare uses the 1/8" cam lock to avoid the snare from backing up. It is the most positive lock in the world. We have done away with the aluminum stop buttons and have graduated to all steel stops to elminiate the hog from tearing them off.

All snares are equipped with deer stops to help prevent accidental deer catches. Snares are mad for the professional or rancher/farmer trying to solve their wild hog problem.

Black Gold Wild Boar Attactant

Black Gold comes in a 32 oz. bottle

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 Black Gold.

Bring in the game!

 A wild hog’s social and dominance status is based on scent.  Trophy sized dominant boars love to rub and cover their bodies with strong odors.

Black Gold drives hogs crazy! Black Gold is a 100% 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 over a recently used wallow.  

Black Gold has a sweet and sour smell and can also be mixed into a sour corn recipe.

 Trip line tie off point

After design and testing through the help from multiple State Wildlife Control Services, Hotwoods began manufacturing this light weight all aluminum hog trap gate which lends a new twist to an already proven design, that has become very popular in the field with private landowners to many trappers for the government etc.

Some people call this style, the rooter or 3 door drop.

This gate was designed to lag into wood posts or to be used with steel "T" posts, or it can be adapted to any situation you may have.


Why aluminum? Have you ever had to carry a gate this size very far into the woods, made of steel? If so, you will really appreciate the weight of this gate. 

Do not let the light weight scare you from thinking it will not hold up to a wild hog, Our gates are field proven and have held up to some of the biggest hogs out in the wilds.

How the Eliminator works

Antlers, OK. 1-26-09 (47).jpg
Shown with pen built in a square shape. This works fine, but a circle sometimes works even better. This customer added panels over the top of the pen also. They were trapping larger hogs and did not want to take any chances of them getting out.

Shown with pen built in a square shape. This works fine, but a circle sometimes works even better. This customer added panels over the top of the pen also. They were trapping larger hogs and did not want to take any chances of them getting out.

Place your gate in a desired spot, where hogs are in the area. Build your pin coming off of each side of the gate in a circle. A circle always works best to keep hogs from piling up in a corner. The size of your pin, can be determined by the size of your hogs, and number of hogs, you are wanting to catch at a time. 


A trip line will be attached to the i-bolt on the door hanger bar, as shown with red arrow above after you have raised the 3 doors up in place. You will then take that trip line to the rear of the pen and secure it in the area where you have dumped the grain or bait you are using to attract the hogs. When the hog hits the line the hanger bar will pull out and the 3 doors will drop down. It is nearly impossible for any hog to get out through the door after it closes. ( much like a fish or sparrow trap )

The door opening is 34" tall x 38" wide. Each of the 3 doors are 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.

The three door design allows all sizes of hogs to enter after the trip line has been released and the doors are in the down position. ( As shown in above photo. ) Allowing one at a time or multiples to enter while eliminating the chance of other hogs escaping, as the little one is coming in one side, leaving a huge gap open for a hog to escape beside the incoming hog.

Manufactured completely from aluminum, the Hotwoods ELIMINATOR Style gates is easy to lift and carry.

After working with various state agencies, we have found standard steel hog traps were 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, without giving up any quality or durability to the product.

Easy to handle. Easy to move

Weighs less than 55 lbs.
