Pig down. Freezer size. Had a bigger pig come in but the smaller ones ran it off b4 I could get settled on it. Still some squealing going on close by, so going to wait a bit and see if they come back.

Things got a little good for 5 min. I was packing up and heard a squeal. Sat back down and woods started rustling really good. 15-20 pigs crossed the trail to my right out of shooting position. Big spotted boar 150#-170# grunting and jaw chomping the whole time. Got a little hog fever for a second. They bypassed me and are headed in Chris’s direction. Never had spotted boar on cam at Chris’s area but others have been there. I would say they are under 200 yds from Chris right now and hopefully closing.

Hopefully Chris can get the 3 kills from this wknd downloaded to YouTube and I will post videos. I know he loves doing this with the air guns! Good pig patrol man right here. Total pigs in 9wks is up to 36. I’ll see if I can add one to the list this evening with Trad gear.

130# Boar last night 25 yds
70# Sow Friday night 25 yds
40# Boar Saturday morning 55 yds

Up in one of my favorite trees on the property! Major trail for deer and pigs to my right. See if anything wants to play.

Yes and no. My main deer spots have pens around them to keep pigs out. I have deer hit the same spots I use for pig hunting and it doesn’t bother them any. Pig blood under both spots weekly and deer hit them daily. I will deer hunt the same spots once season starts.

I made a couple changes this season but last season I killed my big buck from the same spot I kill pigs.

He is a beautiful buck. Currently avoiding feed locations so I had to make a move this morning and set a climber in an oak patch. As of now opening morning I plan to be in that tree.

I watched this buck from 75yds for an hour this morning. Getting him with Trad gear is going to be tough. I plan to carry my Triax with me just in case.
