You'd better have small mesh and strong wire if you hope to hold a coyote in a hog trap.

Swamp , those hogs must not be good at climbing or jumping. I just looked up some hog traps. Interesting. Some are open on top.

Pipepusher, I wouldn't use an open top trap unless it was a "corral type" with flexible post. Seems if the sides are too rigid or the trap too narrow the hogs manage to scale the trap panels and escape. We are not talking domestic acting hogs, we are talking totally wild hogs!

You are correct Jase, cable is cheaper and more mobile than the traps.
