Lol- on tapatalk - on the preview before opening- the picture of the old ladder in the weeds carriers the caption - “good work on the boxblind”
I figured there was some Chewness in the making.
But nope, just Tapatalk being funny.

Good weekend in Centerville with my oldest son and two of my grandsons. Shot a big arse hog on Saturday morning with my bow. Daisy tracked him off the property. Had to call it. Think I got him high. I'm hoping he won't be back ...and his friend as well.

Tough hunting with the grandsons. Nothing moving. Acorns dropping around us.

But we had fun shooting, riding, exploring, cooking, fire making, etc.

Y'all achieved success in that you and everyone had fun. Pictures of your young crew have me envious as mine aren't quite big enough to enjoy that yet.

Which side of Centerville are you located in? We bought 29 acres between centerville and Flynn last year. Full of does, couple young bucks, and some pigs. Haven't seen a mature buck yet though

10 miles east of town on hwy 7. It's hard hunting. The guys on the west side of 45 seem to have better and more deer.

Great stuff Chew. I always enjoy reading your posts and seeing the smiles on those kids faces as they enjoy the outdoors at the KCA Ranch.

Good luck this season!

Gotcha. I grew up hunting centerville. Our main place was actually just south of town bordered 45 on the east side by the overpass just south of centerville. We had that place for 20+ years. The entrance gate was actually off the rodeo pen / show barn just at the city limits.

Had another spot 3 miles west of centerville on 7 that was loaded with deer (40+ seen in a hunt before), but nothing too great. This was back before trail cams.

My place is 7 miles SW of centerville, but like I said its a petting zoo of does and scrub bucks. Just going to keep feeding and establishing it for a place to take my toddler when hes older.

Good hunt this evening. Saw a doe, yearling and a nice group of hogs. Passed on the stanky arse boar and shot a 100 lb sow. First critter with the wasp jakhammers.

Pig was quartered towards me more than I thought but the 3 bladed JH destroyed the lungs.

Walked back to camp and got my 4 wheeler and Daisy the Catahoula. Put her on the bloody arrow and held on for dear life to the 15' lead as she dragged me through some crazy brush. She never slowed down til she was chewing on a hog ear.

Got it back to camp and cleaned up in time for a few adult beverages.

Congrats on the porkage!

First with a Jack-hammer?
Them suckers been out a long time to just now try them out.
They's hard to beat.
Looks like they still puttin a hurtin on em too.


I got to go hang out on some Centerville land last weekend.
1/2 of the place (looked like a couple hundred acres) wasn't hunted because it wasn't "cleared yet".
Box blinds on field edges with feeders out away from tree line.
I'm staring at the thick stuff drooling...... "that's where you wanna be".

Clothes are recommended when the temp dips below 50.

More than just a loin cloth anyways


Just sayin'

Rabbit loincloth?
Durn it I knew I was doing something wrong. Is that worn fuzzy side in?
I think I could go for that.

I would recommend this camo jacket if the temps drop below 40.

Not sure how a faux rabbit taste, but it makes a pretty jacket.

The rabbit bidmess has been booming so we took a road trip to pick up an awesome new buck and doe to expand our number of litters. Mamma needed a new grow out cage for the weaned rabbits.

Built an 8' cage today that has a partition in the middle. Also has a small door in the partition that can be opened.

Just need to slap together a frame and roof so I can hang it.

Me and my siblings had rabbits as kids. Those things will either be eating, pooping or making babies. No need for the birds and the bees talk when you have rabbits around.
