Plan the Mission

The I.C.E.® Cam photo shows the month is October and the overnight temperature is 73°F. We have established an automatic feeder as a food source. Sounder Intel verifies seven adults total. We have determined one trained and certified Hog Control Operator™ will employ the trapping process using one M.I.N.E.® Trapping System. Our performance standard is 100% success which means we must remove all seven pigs expending the least amount of fuel, time, labor and money.

Mission Assessment

We removed seven of seven targeted pigs for a 100% removal success rate. Therefore, we accomplished our performance goals, using a trained and certified Hog Control Operator™, by trapping and shooting during winter months, using our M.I.N.E.® Trapping System and a thermal scoped rifle. The total number of pigs impacted during this mission was seven.

Return on Labor

Our total trapping labor was 3.25 hours. Trapping labor per pig was 32.50 minutes. We arrive at this number by multiplying 3.25 hours times 60 minutes which equals 195 minutes. Divide this number by 6 pigs trapped to equal 32.50 minutes of labor per pig. Total shooting labor was 1.50 hours. Shooting labor per pig was 12.86 minutes.
Episode 20 Return on Labor

This is the first time our return on labor from trapping was less efficient than our return on labor from shooting. Trapping is far more labor intensive when competing with fall mast crops such as acorns and hickory nuts. Shooting operations can be more efficient when targeting seasonal food sources.
