Scott, I talked to some guys about the green lights. They said that the bigger hogs stay out of the light.

Dave I use elusive technology hog light and some pigs avoid it and some come right in. The new lights come on real slow to not alarm them..... Some it scares and some it doesn't

You can plug in to 12v battery on feeder. Elusive Technology makes a good one. They are in Conroe

A lot of the newer deer feeder motors are now hard wired with a plug that you can plug your hog light straight in to the feeder motor circuitry...if your deer feeder is solar, so would the light be...there are several knock-off brands, but Elusive Wildlife Technologies makes the best one for the money.

Dave, I think that the hogs might stay out of the light at first, but if they are coming to the feeder for a month without getting shot, then they will get used to coming to the feeder, light or no light. At least that's my belief.

I've got a green light under my feeder that's plugged into an external solar panel that works pretty good. It comes on slow and gets brighter but not that bright. Just enough so I can see them from the backporch that's about 140 yards away. Once you put a scope on them, they light right up! I think it's a Killzlight.

Think FLIR, no light needed. It is a game changer. They are not cheep, but they do great work.

I did shoot one last weekend about 150 lbs. using a $500 Sightmark Photon XT scope. It's not a Flir but for a digital scope, it's good to about 300 yrds with an external light. The .243 did a good job @ 140 yds.

Good Brian,

Nice work. Are you able to see more than one at a time at your place?

Yea HF, I actually had 4 smaller ones with a few piglets under the feeder but as I was getting lined up, My chair moved and made noise and they scattered, the boar walked out right behind them. I'll usually see 5 or 6 at a time. I'm shooting off my back porch. If you look under/behind the big live oak on the left of this picture, you'll see the TH feeder I'm talking about.

I have a "mount" that the rifle sits on where I can move it a little. A pc of plywood C clamped to the top rail and a sandbag! I'm working on an actual mount. I have a small window in the barn right there so I can be inside and noiseless(is that a word) A small LCD screen plugs into the scope so I don't have to be behind it constantly. If I see movement on the screen, I get on the scope to see exactly what it is. I'll get some pics on the rig next weekend when I'm out there. It's a lazy way to hunt but it works well on the pigs.

I don't think that is a lazy way to hunt, and I also don't consider doing that kind of shooting hunting, I think it's animal control. wink

I hunt from the bed, look out to the feeder and if the lite is on and pigs there then I get up and go out on the porch and set down and prop the rifle on a pillow on a chair and the rest is BBQ

Pat, I remember when hunting from bed might have been the last thing I wanted to do in bed. Remember Wine, Women and Song smile Growing old kinda of sucks, but it is better than the alternative.

I remember when I would hunt in the rain, snow and wind. You could not get me to come in until I could no longer safely hunt. I still love to hunt, but I must confess, I am building a blind down by little pond for hog shooting purposes.

Tracy, it's all attitude. Rearranging your priorities is essential to survival. I had given up hunting till last fall when a friend provided a good place with ladder stand in place. I hadn't realized how great it was to be setting in a tree and watch the sun rise. I was handcuffed twice so went out and bought a crossbow. I shot it enough that I was confident with it. I shot my compound instinctive and had for so long that compensating for an elevated shot was ingrained. Not so with the crossbow with scope. Bambi lives. So do I (thanks to the grocery store).

Bob, this is what I have on my x-bow. It has sighting points for 10-50 yards, in 10 yard increments. It works really, really well.
