Default First Hog Down!

My daughter invited a friend to go hunting for her first hog today. After about an hour in a sweat box, ( 97 in the shade) this guy came in. He was very nervous and wouldn’t commit for a few minutes but the corn finally convinced him. She closed the deal with my old Marlin 30-30. DRT at 25 yards.

You should be proud of your daughter. Bringing a friend along for a hunt is what it’s all about. Good dad. You don’t even need Father’s Day present now.

Great story, congratulations to your daughter both for her hunting/shooting skills and for bringing a friend along. Congrats too dad for your part in this story. That is a great pic with your daughter’s smile, the hog, the dead tree, sunflowers, Texas dirt. And don’t overlook dad’s Marlin had a part in this saga too. Gotta love those lever actions. Thanks for posting.
