Randy Kelley started in 2003 building hog traps on the side apart from his full-time job before it soon came to be his own full-time job a few years later. After realizing the need and demand for such an invention, he began to make them faster and his business rapidly took off. Now, with more than 2,000 customers in the United States ranging from 16 different states, mostly in the South region of the U.S., the Hawg Stopper LLC has proven to be one of the best hog trap devices out there. Randy makes each trap by hand at his home and even does special orders if customers want a trap with specific needs such as a larger hog trap than the standard size or a raccoon trap and much more. Aside from working on hog traps, Randy can be seen fishing, cooking, hunting or playing disc golf in the front yard.
