Looking for some plans on how to build a hog trap on a trailer. I have a 4x10 trailer. Just dont know how to make a ramp or the door way for them to get in since it sets off the ground.
Any pics or ideals please..........

a trap on a raised trailer Huh? I not sure you will get many hogs to enter a raised trailer much less walk a ramp to get to the door. All the traps on trailers I have seen the wheeler folder out from under the trailer some way to where the trailer rest on the ground...If it works let us all know...

A friend and I built one that is just a good solid trap with a tongue and wheels on the top of it.[when in the set to catch hogs mode]
We just pull it around where we are hunting and flip it over when we find a spot we want to set it, tho not really built for hwy towing im sure it could be with minor additions. Hope it helps you or just gives you some ideas.  Wink

RL this is what he said "Looking for some plans on how to build a hog trap on a trailer", not a getter. I get the hogs to walk a ramp out of a trailer all day with a cattle prod. He wants a trap built on a trailer to set and catch hogs on the trailer....

Critter.  I misread his request.  You are correct.  

Further, I haven't seen a trap that made them go up a ramp to catch them.  Seems like that would be one more impediment to success.

You could take the Idea of the older style Paul Scales with the wheels that raised and lowered with the hand winch. I have thought about doing this, but don't have the time to make it happen.

I just got a cheap harbor frieght trailer and welded hog panels and saloon style doors on the end drag it in and flip it over it only weighs about 150-200lbs my fourwheeler pulls it good. the hogs dont like it to much when ya flip the trap over..lol  Evil  I caught 4  in it one time and had to use the 4wheeler to flip the trailer over. the saloon doors only open to the inside of the trap and I sping loaded them with a couple bunggie cords. once ya catch one the others can still push their way in. The trailer is a 5.5x8' deck.

 how about building the trap and put it on the trailer to get it where u want to use it and then set it up and u still hav the trailer. i built a trap and welded steel round rod and a washer to the rod and welded them both to the trap. i bought a pair of solid non-pneumatic tires and drilled a hole in the rod and put a pin in it to keep the tires on the rod. when i move it i put it on the trailer, tote if to where i want to set it up and then unload it and roll it where i need it and then pull the tires off to allow it to set on the ground.

5 x 8 trailer, frame out and put 4 x 4 panel, split down the middle with ply wood slide, on the back left side build a fold down chute(hinged at the top of the trailer and chute).  while driving the chute is on top of the trailer, when you get ready to load flip down the chute back to your trap door run the hog in.  If you have another trap to check you open your slide and run the hog to the other side and load the next hog.  A buddie had one several years ago, don't have photo, but it worked great.
