Val Ramirez the hog trapper comes to collect a group of feral hogs caught in the large live trap set up in the pasture. The trap must be set up in such a way there is room to manuever a trailer to collect them.

Vals trailer has a wire cage chute which is set up on the doorway so that the hogs can enter to get into the trailer. The hog sounder visits the bait box inside the trap during the night. He watches them on his cell phone from the remote camera and closes the trap door when they are all inside. This happened at 2 am.

This family of feral hogs will be taken to a nearby game hunting ranch where they will live together on the land until shot by hunters.
