I usually grab the tail, especially if it is very big, because the rear legs can be strong. You can pick them up by the tail, because most of the weight is at the front end. Once you tie them, you can hold them like a wheel barrow. You can also grab them by the ear once you have flipped them. Hogs have a very hard time turning their heads, and must turn their entire bodies. They will friggin hurt you, make no mistake about it! They scream very, very loudly too! That alone freaks most people out. It is almost deafening. When we trap them, usually one person distracts them while I reach in the other end & grab one by the tail and lift it up, pull the hind legs out, and tie them. Then one guy grabs the hind legs and I grab the ears, and we get him out, flip him, and tie the front legs. If it is a really big one, then you have to get in the trap with it, lol. It is a little easier when dogs are holding it for you!
