Default Hogboy misses the Trifecta

I had the pleasure of welcoming hrdwrkncwby76 home from Korea this weekend.

We arrived at the Hilton after 8:00, unloaded in a hurry, and set off to stalk feeders and pull some trail cam cards. After giving Brad a brief tour of the setups, I put him on stand and I headed back to the house to check pictures. Looks like we had some potential targets showing up at the feeders. Besides the coon invasion weíve experienced lately, there were pics of the big boar I didnít get a shot on a couple of weeks ago, another smaller lone boar, and a group of 4 black piglets that were remnants of the the 9 piglets BenBen left as orphans when he shot a big sow last month. http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...d.php?t=275505
I guess the yotes had picked off 5 of the little squealers already, since they didnít have a Mama to look after them. And they were hitting the feeder every few hours during the day.

Saturday morning we walked into the stands at 6:30 to hunt for a couple of hours. Breakfast bell goes off at 7:00 and about 15 minutes later, here comes the thundering herd of black 15 pounders. I let them get settled in, got the camera rolling, and grabbed my bow off the hanger. No since in being picky, they were all black and the same size. I settled the pin on one, touch it off, the tracer nock lights, and the 100g Muzzy rips through the first one. She starts running around sideways, then hits the deck. The three stooges stayed close, so I nocked another arrow and let them creep back in. Anchor, hold low on my little target, and BamÖÖ.skewered another. She started flopping and the other 2 piglets just dogpiled her. This is pretty funny on the video. Again I nock an arrow and when they get done kicking their sibling while she was down, I ran an arrow through the third one. He squeals and the two of them tear out of there through the tall grass.

I climbed down to 3 bloody arrows and two dead pigs. We blood trailed the third one for 60 or 70 yards with no recovery. I think he will probably live, since we jumped two little blacks under a different feeder later in the day. Heíll just have a little Hogboy tattoo as a remembrance.

I will post up the video when I get time to edit it, but I did learn another filming lesson. Donít pan in to close or youíll miss the arrow flight and I didnít get the third shot captured because he was out of frame.

Side note: I did have the big boar come in right at dark Saturday night, got an arrow through him with blood on the vanes, but not much blood trail. Friday night and Saturday morning, Brad, Biglew, and I followed his trail for a couple of hundred yards with no recovery. I think he probably sealed up and will live to tell about it.


Thanks to hrdwrkncwby76 and Biglew for the work, eating, and tracking help.

Corn and protien are getting to be about the same price. In our region Brown's is $8.25 a 50lb bag. Everyone else is over the $9 dollar mark.

Way to go on some nice smokers Gary. Glad to see you got some bacon coming in.

Looking forward to linking up with Brad later sometime this week to do some scouting around here on Hood.

A little update on the third pig I shot but didn't recover. Trailcam pics had her showing up with a nice scar on her back.
