Trying to bait some traps. Anything grain related is getting tripped by deer. I've been told that soaking corn in diesel will deter the deer and attract the hogs. I plan on baiting the traps all week to get the hogs use to the traps and set them this weekend.

Are there any health risks associated with eating a pig that has been eating diesel soaked corn?

Thanks for the help!

I've heard of it before, never heard of any meat issues from it, I don't see why it would hurt anything.



Just don't use incendiary ammo.

if diesel fuel killed hogs all the corn would be soaked in it and the hog apocalypse would start to disappear.  



hogs love diesel soaked corn and raccoons, deer, possums and other critters will not touch it (or so i am told).

This. I use it in our pig pipes.

Hogs love it.

As far as health risks, I'm pretty sure it can't be too healthy. We don't eat hogs that have been eating diesel soaked corn. There's too many other ones to eat that haven't been eating diesel to even bother, like the ones at our deer feeders.

Agree, Hogs love diesel.  Why... is one of life's relative mysteries, but one reason that makes sense, is that they seem to understand creosote does indeed deter insects.  That's why they rub themselves on telephone poles.  

It seems likely that they are "thinking" the same chemical also should be good to eat.  I can't imagine it tastes good to them, but perhaps they don't eat things based on taste.  They are thuggish, hard-core  survival specialists not connoisseurs.

My advice, however is exactly in line with Ponyboy's.  I definitely don't recommend that you eat hydrocarbons, and with all the others out there that aren't fed diesel-soaked corn, it would be better to eat those untainted.

If the hogs are such a nuisance, why not mix poison in with the dieseled corn?

There are no poisons labeled for use on hogs and using chemicals/pesticides etc. "in a manner inconsistent with its labeling" is a big no-no.

You don't want to get caught doing that any more than you'd want to get caught with an unregistered SBR. It gets real ugly.

+10, exactly.

Believe me, when I say that using poison will have unintended consequences.  I have heard of people attempting to use fly poison to kill racoons at feeders.  The stuff is horribly toxic.  Sorry, but that is just stupid.  

We are lucky to be able to shoot them with NV, FA, thermal and suppressors.  We have that freedom because so many hunters in Texas do this responsibly.  I'm proud of our state.... at just how few problems or accidents we have with so many hunters killing hogs with EBR's, etc.  

Poison, hormones, or contraceptives, have unintended consequences that you cannot properly control.   That's why we don't use them, and why these means are illegal.

Good control of your sight picture and recoil allows for killing hogs preferentially with out harming other animals or the environment. Even when you do it out of a helo.

I was not advocating anything illegal, just a question.  Still seems like a plausible idea to me, but the TX legislature isn't asking me my opinion.

Thanks for the answers though.

Check it out, take a 5 gallon bucket, fill it about 3/4 with corn, pour a couple cans of cheap beer over it, let it sit in the sun and get funky, pour in desired spot, throw rocks and logs and brush over it so that the hogs have to root around for it.



Enjoy diesel free bacon

Amen brutha!! But, are there special permits to pass out pig prophylactics?

A fellow who traps on our property uses a similar technique.  Only difference is that he sets the soaked corn inside a trap.

Yup. My grandfather lost a german shorthair pup to that stuff about 20 years ago, and it still makes me sad to think about. Won't let it on the property at all now.
