I'm looking to attract hogs to an area I hunt.
I have corn feeders, any other methods? I've heard of some home-made concoctions.
I know they can destroy a food plot pretty quickly.
Any ideas?Thanks.

Corn works as good if not better than anything else. You need to make sure you put out enough corn to draw the pigs to your area and hold them there. Two handfulls of corn coming out once or twice a day from the feeder is not going to have the pigs beating a path to your area. If you are able to, go out a few days before you hunt and toss several bags around. That will get the pigs attention and have them coming back looking for more.

Plain corn works good

Plain corn sprinkled with strawberry sno cone syrup works better

Corn mixed with grease from the deep fryer from a mexican or fast foor restaurent works best.

Corn covered in maple syrup chases hogs away.

I sometimes take 20 pounds of corn and put it in a trash can. Fill with enough water to cover the corn and dump a couple of cheap beers in there. Let it sit covered in the sun for a couple of weeks then take it out to the woods.
Use post hole diggers to make several holes and dump the corn in and cover it back up with 2 or 3 inches of dirt. Almost a garuntee of having pigs on it in 24 hours if they are in the area.
Good luck!

Cut the top of a tree or put a post in the ground.Put a tire over the top and fill with soured corn.They will keep circling the tree pushing the tire for weeks trying to get the corn out.Also you can put a creasault post in the ground .They will come to rub it on a daily bases.Keep the insects off of them.

I quit souring corn for hogs; got too smelly for me. Been mixing raspberry jello with water and pouring it over the corn. Helps them find it faster and works just as well.

5 gallon bucket of corn with a lttle diesel fuel poured on it really attracts them. Take the corn and bury it in layers in the ground with dirt on top of it so they have to work for it. Also they love a old log with burnt oil on it or the diesel fuel on it.

Make sure to put some of the water out of the soured corn in a spray bottle. It works great as a cover scent [laughing]

The biggest reason to sour corn is so that nothing else will eat it but the hogs, who wants those pesky deer eating all of your corn when it's not deer season?

I've tried the diesel fuel trick and it does work.
