    Just doing some spot and stalk with new patriot 243. Easy handling accurate lite rifle. Shot this bama boar it was only about 70 yards i use a primos trigger stick helps steady these old hands. Put crosshairs on his earhole. 20170323_175358.jpg bang flop drop.

    Hock they certainly can. They can be very good and some can be very rank. You typically get a good idea when field dressing one. A good meat hog i like is smaller 100 to 150 pounder. And a delicasy is a young little 25pounder piglet thatl fit in the oven whole yum !

    I havent been here in about 8 months. I wanted to chexk on stand and look around a lttle bit. Weve had torrential downpours for two days weather broke about 2 hours ago thought id come over and have a sit watch sun drop with the Patriot. Its really a later deer spot but ive seen hogs pass thru before. Either way nice spot to pass sone time and get in early scout. Piggy would just be a bonus. 20170831_181933.jpg

    Some really nice looking territory. Love it.

    Our archery season opens day after tomorrow.

    We're supposed to get around 2 inches of rain from the remnants of the hurricane that destroyed parts of Texas. Not sure how that's going to affect opening morning, but I'm not going to complain at a time when so many has lost so much.

    We dont open archery till Oct 14th 6 weeks to go ugghh. It kinda nice up here it was actually clear cut 3 yrs ago. This stand is here because there are 4 big oaks that when they drop its like Sonic giving away free corn dogs. Other than that nothing here but animals pass thru pretty regular. I was here to make sure stand was up to snuff for another year and said heck il stay and watch sun go down wind is right and 70degrees. Yea i shouldn't complain of the rain blast weve had those folks in Tx have paid a heavy toll we should be thankful.
