Decided to call it a night. Went to retrieve my arrow, I shot at the coon, about 20 feet from the wood line. Reached down and the **** pig jumped up blowing and grunting as he ran away. Really want to get this guy with the bow, but if he's not gonna play by the rules, I may have to break out the smoke pole. Lol. He'll slip up soon.

Finally made it to the stand at the lease. Left work fairly on time, went to the feed store, got the traps at the house checked and finished mowing the lawn. Then the youngest son met me on the sidewalk with his tennis gear on the way in. Couldn't resist putting in that practice. Got my new HSS harness this past weekend and finally getting to try it out. Much better than the ones that I have been using that come with the tree stands. Storms forcacst for tomorrow and Thursday, youngest son's birthday is Friday and he has a tennis tournament Saturday. Sunday is Easter, so looks like it's gotta happen tonight.

I'm in. Planning to sit until around 11, hopefully. I think I left my thermacell on top of the Jeep cooling the last time I hunted the lease. Guess I drove off and lost it somewhere. We drove around a little Friday night looking for it, but no luck. Bought a new one Saturday night, glad I did.

Thanks dbp! I was hoping for clear skies to take advantage of the moon, but no such luck. Frogs and crickets are making plenty of noise.

Still nothing. I've got a pair of boars coming in a couple times per night and a larger lone boar coming through a couple times a night. Left the buzzcut in the quiver and nocked a gravedigger hybrid. Here piggy piggy!

Shot looked good, and there was a decent blood trail, but I didn't cross the creek to follow it. I took the stray dog that showed up a few months ago with me, but he was no help. Guess I'll be watching for buzzards again. Supposed to rain tomorrow, so the blood will probably be gone before I get home from work.

As I expected, blood has washed away. This pic was just before I shot.

Turkey hunt turned into a pig hunt this morning after we spotted pigs in the woods. I loaded a round of buckshot and stalked to within 20 yards and managed to get 2 with one shot. These were some NASTY insect infested pigs. I've never shot pigs that were as nasty as these were.

I was debating all afternoon about hunting at the lease this evening. Finally when the wife turned on the whatever music awards, I made up my mind. It was already pretty late, but it only takes 15 minutes or so to get to the lease. Got a quarter of the way there and realized I forgot my pistola. No worries, I don't need it. Get 3 quarters of the way there and realized I forgot my bow. Thought about just hunting the box with the riffle that I did bring, but decided to go back and get the bow and pistola. Get to the stand, change clothes, and put on my harness. Get to the feeder and the ground is clean. Opened the timer and forced it to spin. Climbed up the tree and while I was getting stuff situated I hear grunting. Pig finally got quartering away, but the way he ran off, it didn't look good.

Arrow is under the feeder. Not sure if it was a pass through, or a miss. I'm still in the tree.

There was another pig walking the perimeter of the shooting lanes. He was blowing and grunting the whole time the other was eating.

Hopefully it's an easy track! Sometimes they'll run off like nothing happened if with a decent shot

Couldn't stand sitting here watching that nocturnal looking at me. Got down and retrieved it. Has some blood on the shaft, but not promising. Spun the feeder and climbed back in the stand.

Found a little blood but got turned around in the woods a bit. Hopefully he didn't get much farther.

I think the light spooked him. Still moving around in the bushes, but left the corn when I tapped him with the red light.

He passed straight through. Guess the word is out. Not sure if they see uv at night, but I stripped my new camo overshirt, just in case. Gonna try to sit another 30 minutes. Got a couple guys from corporate coming in the morning to show me how to run a new machine. Probably should be slightly alert. Lol
