Got my hog trap built but had a little problem...

Finally got my first hog trap built on my property Saturday but not without an injury. A friend of mine was helping out and the T-post driver got him pretty good. Took 10 staples but he was a trooper and came back and finished it up with me. Always something!

Yeah JV, that’s the kind of mistake you only make once in life, or at least you hope it’s only once!

Raised it to high and when he went to “slam” it down the driver came above the post and caught the end of it and tilted it. Kinda like this but harder:

i was going to ask how that happened ! Dang, he must have a soft head or had some pretty hefty strokes on that driver ! Glad he's alright.. Head wounds bleed like nothing else

GTK, I think it was more the hefty strokes because he has a hard head, I warned him that it would bite him beforehand
