I've got Kyle (Pushbutton2), his dad and brother here for some pigs! Been pretty active last couple evenings right at dark. Hoping they get a little action soon!

Just found out all they've killed with their rifles so far is paper.
Hoping to change that tonight.

Little photo editing. Good time Kyle! Glad your dad was able to get a shot. Maybe next time your brother can get it done.

Dad wanted to leave at 5:30 am. We, hot wife and I, got up at 4:30 to help load and see them off.
They left right on time. I'm still scared bad that this is the last time I'll see him.

I took this picture as the pigs started coming in to the feeder last night. I glanced at it last night and didn't think it anything more than a blurry glob. So I didn't do anything with it last night. I looked at it this am and saw it did turn out Ĺ way decent.

I was sitting behind my Dad & Brother when I took it.

Dad was hoping for a big one.
I used the tape weigh formula and came up with a weight of 103.45#. Not to bad for his 1st pig.


Here's a link to the webpage that explains how to do it.

I was telling my better last night that I think it would be fun to be in that tree with a spear.

If that tree could support me or anyone that sure would be fun! It was a great time. The photo you took before the shot came out good especially for the timing of the evening and not much light in the woods.
