Default 1st Hog Hunt in Years

I always seem to get leases that have no hogs! I know this can be a blessing or a curse but when you want to stick a hog -- well.
I helped another hunter get a lease north of Longview and well he's covered up in hogs and has invited me to set a stand next week. I can hardly wait!!!
Wish me luck and straight shooting!

Thanks guys. It's probably not very exciting for a lot of folks to shoot a old feral hog. But I haven't seen one in probably 10 years now - so I'm really looking forward to the opportunity. I will take the camera. I am even thinking of taking the video camera and tree mount to film it if possible.

It gets me almost as excited as shooting deer.

I know a lot of people complain about pigs, but I am glad we have them on both leases I am on. I would rather shoot a pig than a doe!

I did not see any hogs but I did see a small buck, a doe, and a fawn. Also 6 very fat corn fed squirrels, blue jays, and a few mourning doves. I had a great time just setting in the tripod and letting the morning unfold. I then drove to my lease and checked the trail cam. I had up to 6 deer at a time on the feeder and one 12-13" 6 point and a long horned spike.

Well to bad that you were not able to bring home the pork. It goes that way a lot. One year, I could not go out without having a chance to kill some hogs, and last year, I could not get one to come in so that I could kill one. Better luck next time. Bob
