I'm gonna try to make it until 10. I talked myself out of wearing my coveralls and insulated boots. I know better than to listen to myself!

Well, I'm out now. Coons started fighting across the road at almost 10, so I sat a little longer. Something else came in to my south, but never came to the corn. I made a last minute decision, before the hunt to, take a feeder light with me. I don't have a feeder there, but I threw a rope over a tree limb and pulled it up about 15 feet. I turned it to dim, but I'm thinking the critters didn't like it. I'm going to tape up about half the lights next time I go.

Most of my hunting will be later on in the summer if the pigs show up then like they have the past couple of years.
But I have feeders and cameras running and will be watching them so if any pigs show up and start eating my corn I'll stick em.

I'm probably gonna run Duke's traps until this Arctic blast passes. I didn't think it was going to be this cold tonight.

Coon only waited 9 minutes after I left to show up. Big boy showed up a little over an hour later and again just before 4 am. If I had known the rain was going to hold off tonight, I'd have given it another shot until it hit. Dang weather channel!

Man, I hope so. I could set up a pop-up and get him for sure with a smoke pole, but I'd like to show him what the Rage is all about!

Put the dog out about 30 minutes ago, heard something down at the creek. Shined the light and there was big boy. Usually they look bigger on camera, but not this time. He walked in behind some brush but I could still hear him walking. Went back in the house for about 10 minutes and came back out to get the dog. Heard something just the other side of the fence, shined over and he was right there. 30 yards, tops, from my patio. Vicious hunting dog finally saw him and started barking before I could tell him hush. He only barked a couple times and I was able to whisper "hush", and he actually listened and obeyed for once. Went back in the house to have the wife come see him. Wife and youngest son came out and he slowly headed back to the creek. Son asked why I didn't get the gun. Wife smiled, rolled her eyes, and said "cause he wants to shoot it with the bow!" She gets me. Lol. Cold front has pretty much passed, and I'm pumped now. Checked cameras earlier today and he's still coming through twice a night pretty regular. He's also found my setup on the back side of the place.

He came back to the house. I finally got my bow and light together. Got within 30 yards of him, but never felt comfortable with the shot before he walked away. He never spooked and didn't pay attention to the red or green light. He's not huge, but he's a dang good one for my 11 acres. Lol.

Way to go wits end. I'm in finally. An armadillo and I spooked the hell out of each other on my way in. Taped up about half of the lights on my feeder light and parked my ride a little farther away.

I'm in a climber about 12 feet up. I thought I was in the clear, because it looked like he was past my scent cone. I took a shower and all my scent elimination precautions. Can't fool a pigs nose at 10-15 yards though.

I'm out. Had an owl visit for a little while. All in all, an ok night. Would have been nice to get the hog, but he's the only one I have showing up on cameras. Once I get him, I'll have to leave the house to hunt pigs. Lol

Looked around quite a bit this morning for that little pig with no luck. I think i hit it high. I bet my arrow wentbthrough the pig and hit a tree to break the blade.

Found out why my big pig group didnt come in. A lease member was up the creek and shot one of the big ones out of the group. Must have threw off their routine.

Oh well, next time. I need to find a betrer camera setup. Gopro stinks in low light, contour cam doesnt have 60fps, phon e is to difficult to get started.

Checked cameras today, he didn't come back last night. 2 coons did show up about 10 minutes after I got out of the stand....AGAIN! Got at least 3 new pigs on camera Thursday night at the stand behind the house. Getting ready to head down there shortly.

Not an animal in sight tonight. I heard some squeals down on the creek but they never made it my way. I got down about 15 minutes ago. Church in the Am. Maybe next time. Good luck to all.

Moved my climber across the creek. A lot more view. Already hearing movement. Big boy lives, and I have a whole sounder coming through also. Looks like about 15-20, not all in this pic.
