The past week has been a lot of work for us here, cleaning up after the flood. The good news though is that all this flooding has pushed the hogs up out of the bottoms and they're really on the move now! Here are four of the five taken the past two days by the guys here from Missouri. Congratulations Lafe, Tom, Brent, Dan and Darrell. "Show Me" the pork!

Baked wild pork chops with gravy. Mmmmm mmmm good!
The best part of hunting wild hogs is that they're made of wild pork! Here's a recipe for baked wild pork chops or roasted pork back strap: Either slice a section of backstrap into chops or leave it whole and then season well with garlic salt and white pepper. Mix a couple of eggs in a bowl with about an ounce of water. Dredge the meat in the egg mixture and then in a pan of bread crumbs (I prefer panko crumbs). Sear the meat on all sides in a pan of hot oil. Place browned meat in a small glass dish then add enough water to fill the dish about 1 inch deep. Add two chicken bouillon cubes then cover and seal well with foil. Place in a 350 degree oven and bake 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on thickness of meat. Make sure the liquid doesn't evaporate, add more if needed. After meat is cooked remove the pan drippings and place in a small saucepan to make gravy. If the drippings are too strong you can thin it out with enough water to get a good flavor, then bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch and water in a small cup and add enough to thicken the gravy. Stir constantly while boiling for one minute. Pour gravy over meat and serve.

Nice work.

This was the first piece of liver found along the trail.
We received a text tonight that AJ had shot his first ever hog so we went out to help track. There were two big chunks of liver along the trail so there was mo guessing where the hog was hit. This is the first time I've ever seen such big pieces of organ along a blood trail!

Knowing this was a liver shot we took the Kraken out and turned her loose on the trail within a minute we heard the telltale bark and headed toward where she was marked as "treed" on the GPS. We caught up to her to find where the pig had been jumped from a bed and then died just a few yards down the trail. Congratulations to AJ on his first big game animal!

Fantastic second buck there Matt.

Great looking hogs being killed. Some real bruisers. Congrats too to AJ and his successful first trophy !! Many more to come - bet he is addicted now.
