Checked cameras and it doesn't look like anything has come through since I shot the one the other night. Corn is still there from yesterday also. I may pull the side by side down to the creek and sit in a chair in the back and see if I can get a beaver or armadillo if I get done working on my pickup in a reasonable time.

It was a great night for stalking even though the hogs on the place we went tonight were really skittish. I shot one and got in on a huge sow right after that. She came in at 25 yards and i lit her up and settled the pin. Squeezed the trigger and Ping!!!!!!!
Never knocked an arrow. UUUGGGHHH!!!

Default Wisconsin Hog Hunters

WELL my friends from Wisconsin arrived around 3pm. We discussed the night hog hunting and how it was to go. Around 430pm I got the guys set up with guns , night visions and in a stand ready to go. We started seeing hogs moving right before dark but no good shots. Then at dark the shooting began. All 3 hunters got a hog and 1 guy got 2. They could have shot more but they were limited on the ice chest room they had and room in the truck for the ride back to Wisconsin. So by 730pm they were done and we had got them to the road to be picked up. I had to make 2 loads with my little Geo Tracker. Got them to the cleaning station and began cleaning. Then the rain hit. So we got wet but all in all it was great time. these guys were very very Happy. They had went on 2 paid hunts while they were here in Texas. 1 was a bust 2 days and no hogs. 1 Was with Capt Mike and it was a thermal hunt. they got 6 hogs. They had fun but they really liked my setup. big stands and just sit and wait. The hogs are there and came right out like I told them. 3 hours of hunting and we were done. hogs were still crossing in front of us. Glad they were out of room in the truck I would have been cleaning hogs all night.LOL. Wished I could video at night. just have not got the set up yet.

Trying to get my 12yo son his first bow kill. Had a boar in, but wouldn’t quite give him the 10 yard shot he needs.

I've gone back and forth with myself all evening. Everything is too perfect not to sit tonight. NW wind and the neighbors up wind have been burning brush piles all day. Should have some good smoke cover scent.

Got dangit! By the time I got my stuff together and got this confounded harness on, the pigs were already there. Big boy included! I'm in, but don't have high hopes of them coming back tonight. We'll see, sitting tight. Congrats to your brother Adam!

We only got a couple really light showers today. That coupled with the warmer temperatures has the frogs stirred up in this creek bottom. I keep getting my hopes up because a few of em have a low croak that sounds like a grunt. Lol. I can hear the beavers working on the creek, but they're behind some brush a good ways away.

I sneaked down to the hole in the fence where they've been crossing and set up. Been there about 30 minutes and this guy stood up out of his bed and started rooting around. Couldn't have been more than 40-50 yards but I couldn't see him due to brush. I could hear him chewing he was so close. He started moving toward my brother who was 300 yards away at the feeder. Pig crossed the road 20 yards in front of him and bypassed the feeder. 6.5 grendel did him in.

I went last night with a great friend from Church. We direct more time enjoying the fresh air fellowship than we did hunting.
Only thing we saw was a raccoon.
One of my best hunts ever!

Last night after the hunt we put out 50# ofhand corn under the feeder.

Friday after workI bought an X bind at Walmart. I was hoping to find a deal on a ladder stand or ground blind. Didn't

I decide I was going hunting again tonight. I texted my buddy, he had company and than had to finish an Essay. He's getting his Master's Degree.

I decided to go anyways.
I wanted to try the X Blind out tonight.

It wasn't as tall as I'd hoped. Instead of sitting on my chair behind it, I folded my chair up, laid it on the ground and say on it. It's got a pouch under the seat.

This was about 630 or so.

I wasn't exactly sure where I wanted to hunt tonight. Last weekend the landowners bind came up MIA. W think the wind blew it into the tank, I removed mine last weekend too. Last night the trees mine was under were gone.

I decided to just of the tank dam. As I got there with it being overly I was concerned i couldn't see the feeder very well once it guy dark. So I walked 1/2 way to the tree line. I was out in the open sitting on the ground behind my X Blind. One cool featured is that it doubles as a bipod. I was getting bored so I laid in my side behind the blind watching the feeder.
About 8 I saw a small black furry thing scamper up to and after the track dam. I couldn't get my light on it fast enough to positively I'd it. Fairly positive it was a skunk.

I'd sit up for a bit and my back would start hurting so I'd stretch my leg out for a bit than maybe lie on my side to stretch my back out.
Anyways its about 945 pm, earliest I've seen a pig in the 3 moths hunting here, I'm on my side perusing TBH, I gave towards the feeder and see a dark shape, I was like is that new? No it's been.. OH it just moved, there no wind. PIG!!
I sit up, tick on my Coyote Reaper light, I had the dimmer switch to low. He is standing there broadside. I put the crosshairs just below his ear and POW.
He hits the ground and started doing the herky jerky. I'm watching him in my scope, he's just flopping. About the time I grab my phone he gets up and starts walking to the left. I grab my rifle and out another one into his side he stops and stands still, I give him another in the ear, he has the hurt and don't move.

I'm having his skull Euro mounted.
I wear a size 13 rubber boot.

Got down from the stand. Gonna switch to a knock off and see if I can sneak up on those beavers. I may have to shoot through the fence, so this may be tricky.
