We use a highly modified #5 steel jawed trap to deliver a securely anchored Hog Commander 48″ customized spring loaded cable up the leg of the target animal. As the target enters the hidden trap set area and steps on the trap’s pan, the trap throws the anchored cable 10″-12″ up the target’s leg. The hog immediately pulls its leg from the trap and the trap itself falls away to the ground. The loaded spring tightens the cable noose down to a specific point, to about the size of a quarter, above the dew claw of the caught animal making it impossible for the animal to escape. The opposite end of the cable should be anchored with a heavy chain, cable lock, rope, strap, etc..(not included) to a solid tree, post, pole, earthen anchor or drag. The “Catch Friendly Sleeve” on the catch end of our cable virtually eliminates damage to the target animal’s legand the deer stop does not restrict blood flow and circulation.
PREVENT DEER FROM ENTERING YOUR TRAP SET AREA
Hog Commander strongly recommends you use a deer repellent around your trap set area and mix thoroughly with your bait pile. Deer repellents are available at most all feed stores, co-ops, lawn and garden centers and hardware stores. Repellents come in both granular and liquid form. A $10 container should last you a season if applied as directed. If using granular repellent, spread 1/2 cup around your trap set area and mix 1 cup with your bait pile. If using liquid form, spray liberally around your trap set area and mix into your bait pile. Re-apply to area after a rain or as needed.
Most repellents are composed primarily of eggs or meat meal, blood meal and bone meal. It repels deer from the area but acts as a very strong attractant to omnivorous hogs. USE DEER REPELLENT!!!
