Hog 18
« on: July 29, 2015, 02:11:46 PM »
I picked up Hog No.17 the other day but did not get any photos.  However, Hog No.18 was a different story.  I saw him out in the freshly cut field about 65 yards out.  He had spotted me, and was making his way back towards the woods.  He made one mistake, and that was pausing to cast a wary glance my way.  I had already picked out a hole in the foliage which to shoot through.  I put the crosshairs right on his neck and touched one off.  PLOP!  Down he went.  A subtle twitch of his tail, and it was over.  Hog No.18 is on the books. 

Can you see him in the photo below?  Find the big tree in the center of the photo and look up at the upper left hand opening of the two openings in the foliage.

Carl,

The most I ever got in a year was "33".  It was the first year we moved into this house back in '92.  Subsequent years I got in the mid twenties.  It has slowed down the last decade.   I wonder what this area would be like if I never shot a hog? :confused:  Be a lot more chuck holes for sure! :laf:

Well for sure you are the "Hog Man" . I have not shot any around my house but I've got one that has set up residence by digging a Burro under a retaining wall beside my house covered in Juniper, gotta figure a way to get out of the house to get a shot without spooking him. When my Dog Puddin was alive she kept them thinned out.
Keep up the good work.

None out here, but in our new "city" living we have noticed pack rats in the yard.  Have three scalps to date. 
When they come for mine they better bring theirs
