I know, that was directed at the other ladies.


I look forward to this every year. Great time. I'd like to do one in the Sam. But the pigs aren't near as reliable. But the fishing can be pretty good.
We could party hard in the woods. Have some fun.

Looks like the Granger hunt could be a little bit tougher this year, considering they shot 200 pigs out of the Heli!

Supposedly it was only 100, but they've shot them the week before our hunt and we still killed pigs.

It happens.

It's for YOUR own good.
There are too many lurkers ( like your friend) that just watch and never help out. ( No, I'm not calling him out) ( although if he wants to join, now's a good time)

Some of the lurkers have no intention other than to lurk.
Others use your info to come and hunt your spot. ( I know, kinda hard to believe) I've given out some false info before...just for them.
It is what it is, but if you like your spot, keep it to yourself. Otherwise it may get a surge of activity.

Whoo-Hoo...Daylight Saving Time Here! Looking forward to going to woods after work on Friday & have enough daylight to pitch tent then set up for evening hog hunt!!! Got a new Vengeance Reverse Crossbow that is more powerful @ 50 yards than my old Jackal at 10 yards!!! I wanna see what the 22" bolts do since last year's boar didn't get a "pass thru" with 20" bolt. Using Grim Reaper 125gr. Mech Broadheads. TGIF...in my mind!

Are you standing up behind that bird?


I kid, I kid! Good seeing your ugly mug again. Got a few extra whiskers since the last time. Turkey are fun to hunt. Bow or slingshot. Having them calling and coming to your call. Doesn't get much better for an adrenaline junkie.

Hey Damian here's a funny story for you: last weekend when I texted you I was exploring the north (i.e. wooded) side of a big park up here along Spring Creek. Well, after I texted you I got sidetracked, then had to divert from my trail to avoid some boggy areas that were water-logged from recent rains. Anyway, long story short, I spent 2 hours trying to find my way out of this park without getting wet or bitten by a cottonmouth or copperhead. Fortunately I lived to tell about it.
