We are in the second hunt. My son is really excited about the possibility of getting his first hog. Send some tips my way if you have them after the hunt.

Me and a buddy took 3 on Friday. Not as many encounters as in years past but a little better shooting. My buddy put one down while it was bedded with a hog wild shot through the ear. He Also hit a second pig in the vitals with the same shot. One of the balls was a little high and severely injured a pig bedded behind the first that he did not realize was there. 2 pigs with one shot. They were both boars in the 150 range. First was a sow right of th road and she was 120ish. Headed back out today.

That’s a trophy without the kill. AWESOME FIND! Sure wish they would let you keep the sheds.

Where'd you find the hog wild shot? I used it last year and loved that stuff. Couldn't find it anywhere this year and seems to be discontinued.

Been bad about updating. We got on some pigs yesterday morning. Couple shots from buddy’s with one pig down. Saw one group this morning but back in a dense thicket. I hunted solo this afternoon and stalked a lone boar to 20yds but when I went to step into a shooting lane I broke a stick and he was gone. Did see a nice buck today. One side had already dropped but the other was a heavy wide 8.

Seen a ton of deer and turkeys. Think we’re gonna sleep in tomorrow, but will be back next month for turkey.

Seems like numbers are way down. Did it seem like a lot of hunters bailed due to weather? Wonder if they did the helicopter swine slaughter again?

We got into them yesterday and today, numbers seemed higher than normal. Ended up shooting 11 and had several blow opportunities. We are done for the weekend.

Also found lots of kilos from the helicopter hunt as well.

We walked all day the first day and covered an estimated 15miles. (45,000 steps). We saw just as many tracks as in years past. We never found real heavy feeding areas or large nesting areas which is where we normally start to focus our hunting once we know where those areas are.

Day 2 was much slower and we teamed up with 3 guys we met during the hunt and did a wide push through an area we had killed 2 the day before a taken pigs from the past several years. On the way in my buddy asked if that was a pig in the private field and we all laughed at him because all 4 of us where sure it was a cow. We were 1/2 mile from it and it was clearly a cow just feeding. Well after splitting up and getting closer it became obvious it was a giant boar. We set up on a few places the pigs were entering and exiting th property and watched him feed for 15 minutes. Eventually the hog was 50 yards from one of the groups and th wind which had been blowing the other direction swirl and he lifted his head and took off running the other way. It was a fun time and we were hoping to get one and let th other group take it out as we had more meat than we needed.

Last night we cleaned up the 9 quarters and 6 backstraps we had hung in my shed. We will be grinding 10 pounds tonight for sausage and burger.

I’ll be at church today so we are done. Another great hunt. The last 5 years my group has taken 0 first year, 1 second year, 2 3rd year, 6 4th year, 3 this year. It is always a different hunt and fun to explore how the refuge has changed.

The hogs wer also covered in ticks. One of the front shoulders was so bad we just gave up on trying to take it. I hate those things.

Hagerman wins this time. Drove up Thursday not feeling very well, Friday was worse, sprung a leak-sorry guys for the big pile in Goode, headache, coughing, etc. Always take enough TP!

Went through Goode, lower Harris, Sandy off of Short road, and only saw what we think was a couple of pigs. Plenty of sign, hog highways, but no opportunities. No sure if it was the cold, 30's and very low 40's, or just a bad weekend.

Back home, stuff cleaned up and for the most part put away. Nice seeing JJ and his buds, Leon, and a few others.

I never counted the totals, but based on those i talked to and being in the woods I’d say the kill numbers were down this year.

Way down from what I saw in the book. Friday seemed above average for us and we heard tons of shots but Friday we only saw one and never heard any shots.

Went to a refuge in Minnesota with a bunch of decoration on it

Paul showed me a pic of it Friday morning

He called it a "totem" and said it was decorated to symbolize the things at Hagerman

So much for leaving sheds at the refuge. There has been many times where I could have taken sheds from the refuge but did not due to the rules. Would have been cool to see that shed in person one day.
Def would like to see pics of this totem though
