Thanks Rusty!

Well I had tentative plans to hunt through Tuesday morning... but with the acorns dropping, my favorite spot not recovered yet, and rain tomorrow, I am going to save a vacation day for a better time.

Lots of season left.

Thanks for following... will fire up this thread again when I am back at it.

That reminds me. I forgot one update. I was already pretty confident I mortally shot that hog. I was also pretty sure that he was dead within a 200 yd radius semicircle. The problem of course being that it wasn't a trackable shot.

On the way back to camp after the morning sit, as I came down the road that encompass that semicircle, I busted about 15 vultures. I figured he had to be laying out in the open so I trudged through there some, but still couldnt find him in that maze in the the minutes I tried. But all in all, it did provide a little closure to the mystery.

Funny how if I can't recover a hog, I want it to have died... but if I can't recover a deer, I hope that is survived.

There are times I hope not to recover a hog.. I ALWAYS want to recover my deer and fast, so I have no issue with hoping the pig died. Congrats on poking the pig, and the shot on the fox.

Okay, so I got a question about this post. Here is a link to a terrible, terrible song that I was referencing. If you click on it and watch it... it is on you.. not me.

Just spent the last 2 hours putting up a tripod... then taking it down... go to another spot on the ranch and put it up.

Haven't unpacked. Need to take a shower and head out soon.

Your one day sit was better than my 9 days of sitting during my 11 day vacation last week. Any time in the stand is better than time at work! Congrats to you, and mucho lucko on the rest of your weekend!
