Camera didn't give me fuzzy feelings. Pig here last night around 8:30. Nothing else the rest of the week.

It was a nice sit. Someone just shot a couple properties over. I'm going to call it a night.

Had two coming in, far right in pic, they got down wind and took off running. Wind is strong, thought it would dilute my scent enough.

Got this/these guy(s) coming in regular at my wife's stand at the lease. Gonna try to hang a stand in bow range this week. Can't tell if he's covered in mud in the second pic, or may be 2 different pigs.

Good luck! I've got the trailer hooked up and ready to load the side by side to head to the lease after work tomorrow. Hopefully we'll get a stand put in place and the feeder topped off. Looks like rain the rest of the week/weekend.

Got my stand moved. Not as much cover as I was hoping. Don't think it looks as bad from the feeder, and the leaves will be full by next week. Now I just have to wait for the wind and the weather.

Decided to give it a try this evening at the lease. Checked the cameras and they're not coming through regular anymore. Mostly between midnight and 5 am now.

Didn't come back. I'm out. That dude is huge. The brown one looks bigger on camera. May try it again tomorrow evening, depending on the wind. Supposed to rain the next few days after tomorrow.

I thought about using my pop-up, but I think these pigs are too smart for it. May give it a try in a week or so, if I don't have any luck. Not sure if he saw, or smelled me. I haven't hunted from a tree in a few months and I got excited when he came in. He stopped around 50 yards and I reached for my bow. Rookie move, but like I said, I got excited. Lol

False alarm. Bout 40 wrens digging in the leaves.
Haven't used the rangefinder, but looks like about 70 yards to the bushes.
And about 15 to the feeder.

Probably could have gotten him with the pistol. I can still hear him behind me, and maybe something from the way he came. May be my imagination and wishful thinking.

Well, here I am an hour later saying pretty much the same thing. Gonna give it 15 more minutes, unless something happens. Haven't heard anything in about 5 minutes. Guess he moved on. Phone is almost dead and butt is completely dead.
