Default Big Sow

Had enough work to last awhile so last Thursday I started playing guide with some guys from Nebraska down to hog hunt. They hunted together the first night which left me alone to hunt myself. A nice sow came in and gave me a quick shot. She was bigger than I thought. The scale only went to 200# and she pulled it well past that. We're guessing 250#. Gotta love Texas. They got a hog at the other stand too. Good night.



Tonight we'll be making sausage.

George

This might have been a good night for you Boo. It goes like this: you sit in the dark for a couple hours, listening to coyotes howl and who knows what else. It is 41 degrees and really calm with unbelievable stars. Turn on the varmint light every few minutes and watch coons eat your $7.50 a bag corn, then finally when you hear loud crunching turn on the light and shoot quick before the hogs run off. After she was down a hog came up to about 20 yards from the blind (staying well hidden in the cedars) and growled at me for about 10 minutes. I waited for awhile before I climbed down. Of course, then there's the field dressing and the sit around the campfire. It was one of those rare nights when it was cold enough to put off the skinning/quartering to the next morning.

It's more comfortable later in the year, but the bugs are worse. Thank God for the Thermocell.

I wouldn't call Gorno a hog (as far as he knows). Anybody who lives in Chicagoland and keeps even a fraction of their sanity deserves some respect...not a lot, but some. Since WGN is on the dish I can get a little reminder any time I want. We lived there for 17 years, worked for Bell Labs in Naperville. Don't miss that area. No piggys to shoot.

Sort-of; it reminds me more of a few neighborhoods I tried to avoid. Sadly it seems most big cities have trouble spots (and political issues). Dallas has a couple that show up in the news a lot. Of course, down here an awful lot of regular citizens are armed at all times. Not very many muggings down here...

I'm sorry, but I can't figure out which jane you mean. Must be gettin too old.
