Hog from post #690, showed back up. How he took that shot leaves me shaking my head. About 4” back from my ideal shot

Oh well. It won’t happen again

That patch looks a "little" far back to me, but I'm with you not knowing how he survived. I had one with an arrow broken off in him with a patch in almost the same spot last year. Called him patch when we saw him on camera. I think it's the big one I have coming around now, but the hair grew back.

Headed out for a walk about now. Should be off bait and in fields by now. Agreed. Shot is farther back than I wanted. I shot from the ground sneaking through beauty berries. Thought it was center of shoulder I was aiming at.... obvious it wasn’t

Awe man! Git ya one, and you'll be hooked. Good luck! I've gotten so that I rather hunt pigs than deer most of the time. Pigs seem to be more of a challenge and more plentiful here in East Texas.

Just a few more years and pigs, and you'll know what I feel like when I have a choice of deer vs. a monster hog.


Many times I can hardly wait till deer season is over so all the deer hunters leave the woods and I can go hunt pigs!

@ 1115 the wind picked up a smidge. It's cooling off a hair.
Naturally it's at my back when it should be in my face. I hope the garage I'm sitting next to is providing adequate cover scent.
I'm tired and if I have to move it'll Beto my bed.

Dogs west of me have been carrying on for 10 minutes now. Every now and than I hear a squeal like sound. It could be a pig or a dog.

I'll give the pigs about 15 minutes more
Than I'm going home.

I hear something to my right....
Didn't see anything. I was able to practice my Ninja Moves when I walked into a spider web tho :-)

I'm in the truck fixing to go home.

Best of luck to those of you that are still out.

FYI... Historically (on the live threads I've participated in) "I'm out," means you're leaving the stand/woods. "I'm in," means you're getting in the stand/woods. Just an observation, please continue!

They are. The Landowner says they're allowed to be there.
I don't mind them. Feeders been there 2-3 years now maybe. They haven't messed with it.

The “pigeon toed assassin” and myself we be as live as we can this evening. Rare north wind in July. Large group of small to mid sized coming in multiple times daily for a month and a bigger boar around 8:30 sometimes. Every morning 7:00 ish and every afternoon 1:30ish and every evening 5-7:30.... I hate to sit that long for a pig, but that’s the game.

Snuck in at lunch and put up her pop up. I cut grass and brush and she did the rest. Where I had it last time is so grown up I’d need a brush hog to clear a spot. Plan on sneaking in at 5:30and prepared to shoot then. Been a ton... ton of oil field shenanigans past few weeks on this property. And we’re all out of meth to smoke our clothes in for cover sent, so we will be at a disadvantage there.

Thermal off, Lola’s ziess back on and confirmed zeroed!

Feeder spins at 5:30

We are within 100 yards @ 5:30 and hear it spin. 7 seconds from a 12v west Texas feeder supply. Within another 80 seconds tops we are at blind @ 35 yards. You can’t stack another hog under feeder! Stuck through weeds like snakes and get in blind (just like last time... but easier) they were clueless. She gets on trigger.. “dad where are my ear muffs?”...

@&$*+%#&$@“. I look down road where she sat her stuff down to sneak... hot pink muffs. I sneak out grab them.. sneak back in as they are scrambling for the last kernels..... gone

Waited 5 minutes and respun feeder. Hunted anouther 10 and said forget this. It was unbearable. Didn’t want to shout out a 7 year old on a not guaranteed thing She wants to go back tomorrow before church, so we will see if wind is right.

They are just living at the feeder. I could have killed one with a gas station throwing star.... but that’s wasn’t the goal ��

Stick your fingers in her ears next time, brother. If you tell her that works better, she'll never know the difference.

I tried to cover them for her once.... she didn’t like it at all

I’m glad she’s that strict on them. I wish I would have been. I never saw ear protection till I was in my 20’s. Lol
