I've had loan boars walk like that around a feed sight for several hours. They will check in and out. Sometimes bed down close by where they can "hear" the feed sight. Last one I shot, it took me 2 hours to get him used to the light. And in the right position. Couple coons that had been feeding close by helped get him in the right position. That's not the first time coons have helped me out with pigs.

I'm out, maybe another night. He never would come back out, and someone just started shooting big fireworks close by. Think he's bedded down behind the stand like TG said. Mosquitoes were bad last night and tonight. Thermacell kept it tolerable. Supposed to rain the next 3 days, so it'll probably be Tuesday at the soonest before I get back in this setup. Thanks for keeping me company, it was a nice night for a sit.

Good luck. Drizzling here. That used to be my favorite time to hunt them. They would be grubbing out in the fields

No pigs yet but got to within ten yards of a gobbler! Honestly that's the first gobbler I've ever seen in the wild other than occasionally on the side of the road. Pretty cool.

He walked along the woodline and disappeared out of range before coming to the feeder.

I looked up just before it got dark. Saw a black spot that I hadn't noticed. Didn't think much of it, thought it was just a shadow. Couple minutes later, it looked different. I zoomed my light in and saw eyes. Hoped he would make it to the feeder, but he had other plans. Never saw, or heard from him again.

Dead wind here, have not heard anything. Gnats or whatever are annoying.

Something ate the corn at both of my spots at the house. Didn't bring corn with me, or check cameras today. Got an update Wits_End?

My wife says I don't really want to kill the animals I hunt. She might be partially right. I'm not overrun with targets, and if I kill them I won't have any to hunt. The hunt is my favorite part, but I do like to shoot em every once in a while. Lol

Just got in the tree. As I was clipping my harness, it started sprinkling. Guess that's what I get for trying to hunt instead of mowing the lawn.

I hear ya. I did a little pig clearing a few years ago for a friend in his hay field. His hay guy was threatening to quit cutting because it was tearing up his equipment.

He's staying out of range. Won't come to the feeder. Guess I'm going to have to bring the .308 since they can't play by the rules. Lol
