I hunt a large piece of family land in the central part of Mississippi.In recent years the pigs have started moving in and are now around in very large numbers.The piece of property that I hunt is very thick I mean some of it is so thick you have to crawl on your hands and knees to get through it.I have cleared out a small clearing for a rye grass patch and I also have a corn feeder there. I have been trying to kill some pigs and having no luck at all.I have a game camera setup and I'm getting some nice pictures of good pigs.(If i could figure out how to post pictures I would should ya'll some)My main problem seems to be that they are almost totally nocturnal.Out of about 600 pictures only 15 show pigs during any type of shooting light.When I'm deer hunting I will hear them squealing and snorting off in the distance but they never come into the feeder.I've tried adjusting my feed times on the feeder but nothing seems to work.It's kinda funny because the deer now come in to the feeder between 11am and 1pm and the pigs after dark. Is there any way to shift the time they come in?Do I need to just start hunting them at night?Do they respond to any kid of pig call?(I know that sounds goofy thought I would ask though).some of the problem is that I live 2hrs away.Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for all the replies.No can do on the burning,just to big and to much fuel on the ground.Part of the property borders theNational forest and I would hate to catch that on fire.What do ya'll think about setting the timer for 6am and thats it.The deer would eat most of the corn during the day and the pigs wouldn't get any.Do they like eating corn enough that they would start coming to the feeder so they would get some?The pig pipe is cool.I'm going to give that a try.One side of the property has a 60acre pine thicket borderin it.This is the pigs domain.That place is tore completely up.I believe this is where they are laying up.I may try moving the feeder to the edge of that thicket.I been in there,the pines are about 8yrs old.The low brush and briars are unbelievable.It is almost impossible to move in it with out crawling.I spent about a 1 and a half in there one day,saw alot of sign,rubs,rooting,poop and beds.No pigs though.I have never been so happy to get out of a place.
