Man, I sure hope the dang hogs don't discover all that gold lyin' on the ground! That'd mess you up for sure! We have so many hogs on our place, it don't matter where you put out corn, the dang hogs are there instantly!! Good luck to you!!

Well I hope you are tracking his blood trail or that he at least came in and it is just to dark for you to shoot and you are waiting for him to leave your corn pile.

So there I was... last shred of darkness. The 3 bucks rising from bed and slipping by for some corn then disappearing into the yaupons. Then it got quiet. Real quiet.
Just then I heard a twig snap to my right and the unmistakable crunch of leaves heading my way. I grabbed my bow and clipped the release on the loop. Heart thumping in my ears, the anticipation was unbearable as the sound grew closer and closer. He came straight up to the ground blind and nosed around in the leaves not three feet from where I sat. As I ever so carefully peered out the window what do I see? Nothing but an old crusty armadillo!!
