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.

Nice job!

I'm in the stand for the second time in less than an hour. Got in and everything set up and tried to check the time on my phone that I didn't have. Went back to the house and back in.

I went for a walk this evening and got in on a group. Made a pretty poor shot on a sow but she only went about 60 yards. Got her liver. My buddies brother went with us and didn't get one so i let him have the meat. I'm ready for things to start turning green. Stalking is difficult this time of year.

Took the ole smoke pole to the back tower stand this evening to see what I could put a hole in. Out walks a pretty decent boar under the feeder light. I lit him up with the 66LR and sent a .280 round through his spine. DRT.

Sitting in a Maverick blind at our ranch. Morning throw was gone when I got here. Hoping so pigs show up by dark. Got the mini sniper on the bow if they procrastinate.
