Default Bowhunting Success

Got my river place back up and running after multiple flooding events. The hogs are as thick as ever.

Shot this one the last day of regular deer season. Knocked him down where he stood. Shot was a tad high but effective.

Shot this one last night. Shot was as good as it gets. (Pure luck ) Mercedes logo in the heart and lungs hanging from entry wound. Still ran 40 yards.

Yep, it was too cold for me last night. As you know, I like hunting at night when it hot out and I can't wait for it to start warming up and hopefully we don't get a abundance of rain this year as like you, we finally have dried out.

Congrats on the hogs

Good shooting, Jeff! You're getting pretty good at this hog hunting thing!

Keep an eye out for a spotted one...I might be tempted to make a trip that direction and see if I can NOT shoot the spotted one this time!

I remember when I first meet you and you were just a little ol hog farmer that feed the pigs. I am glad to see that now since hunting our ranch I have molded you into a full on hardcore hog killer now. I am so proud of you old grasshopper!
