Started out Friday night in a ground blind at #1 with the wife who had been practicing all summer with the hope of getting her first animal with her bow. Not 5 minutes after the feeder went off, 4 good pigs came in. Brooke took the opportunity and stuck her pig. Little high and back, didn't bleed much but with the help of Colby, Matt, Cheryl and Kai we found it. The wife then went into freak out mode.
Saw tons the next AM walking in and out of 7. None were willing to come join though.
The next evening I was on my own, up a ladder stand on #2. The wind was swirling on hogs were busting me every time. Finally 4 pigs came in but busted before I could get a shot. At long last two small guys came in and looked just right for a whole hog on the Traeger. Plus they were broadside so.....
The next day we were back on the road to South Dakota, though we did have to make a stop at the best fast food place on earth!
P.S. Kai says thanks for the opportunity to help! ;-)
Matt & Cheryl
PS I LOVE this picture Cheryl... It makes me giggle thinking about how you put your hand on the hog and thought it was my knee... I'm not European ;)
Sounds like a lot of good eating and grilling going on!
Yeah, yeah Michael...I've gotten lazy. What can I say? I have to admit that it is nice knowing where she is at all times. Although I do tend to panic more when I see her standing still. Even when the hog's dead, she does a little dance in circles around it, so if she's not moving it's usually not good. I can't tell you how many times I sprinted to get to her only to catch her relieving herself.
At least you know where she's not moving, as compared to some of the runs with Sage.
