Shelled corn is all you need. Most feeders put out about a pound for each six seconds and that's enough I think. I put the dark colored mineral block at my feeders and they love them. The thickest places you can get the hogs to come is the best places I think. We hunt the swamps and this time of year after the leaves fall it's hard to get a hog to come before dark. If you can put the feeders adjacent to a clearcut you'll be in business since this is where the hogs are bedding during the day. Good luck.
I know your post is two years old, but the barrel method works great. I found the information on the Boar masters web page. All you do is fill a 55 gallon plastic barrel with corn then cut a 2 inch whole on the bottom. Hogs love to work for their food. Make sure you tie the barrel down to a tree or post.http://www.gotreticle.com/index.shtml

The weather is cooling down and it's time to hunt hogs. We set out our hog bait barrel in an area known for hogs. Our portable blind is at 50 yards for night hunts. It's time to put some meat in the freezer.

I wouldn't use any "free choice" feeders for the sheer fact pigs will eat you out of house and home. Every time you go hunting, the corn is gone.
Set up your standard deer feeder, set it for 1 hr before dark, once per day.
Shoot pigs. They are quite prone to "regular" feeding. ESPECIALLY from March 1 to Sept 30. I call that time frame. Pig Season!
Feeder suggestion - Hang 'em High. Stake down the feet. Expensive but just completely reliable and with staked feet, pigs don't break them.
