Default Pig down!!!

Well long story short I finally did something for myself. I went ahead and bought 81 acres in January. After buying a tractor and trying to juggle work and family, I try and make it up to the ranch every sunday to clear out some shooting lanes and keep everything mowed. Well my girlfriend mentioned going out Saturday evening for date night to try and sit and shoot a pig. I was like that sounds like a perfect evening, this would be the first sit in the new stand and would also help with seeing what is coming to the feeders right now.

Well we showed up around 6:15 and within 30 minutes this big sow came in to my furthest feeder but didn't present a shot. She ended up going back into the brush and about 45 minutes later she showed up to my feeder that is about 40 yds away. It only took her about a minute to get the cross arrows on him and boom!!! about a 20 yd track and drag for some LDP.

You must have been really mad at them to set out in this heat.
