    As you can see. Very inportant to have a roof.
    That has inspired me, I haven't tried trapping pigs before but might look at doing something similar in the very near future. 3 questions;

    1 What is the spec of the vertical netting that you have around the waratahs.
    2 Is this method good for multiple captures in the same area, or do the pigs learn from observation of capture events
    3 Does it take much time for a pig to decide to go into the trap, do you get many photos of pigs inspecting before entering?, or do they generally enter on first encounter.

    Sides are reinforcing mesh.
    It varies. The older pigs can be very clever. One boar caught worked out that, once caught, pulling the string opened the door, but it couldn't pull it and get out at the same time.
    Some will go straight in, others are very cagey.

    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Awesome, thanks. When I get some time I am going to try this.

    Anything palatable served up by the traps such as in the picture below and supplemented with beef. The stoat in previous post has also been ‘upcycled’ for it’s scent. It has been rubbed around the inside of a number of traps in the hope of inviting some friends.
