The annual Fox and friends Shiloh hunt will be here in a month. The group this year consists of myself, son, 2 grandsons and two friends. Should be a great time. We are looking forward to meeting new owners & of course seeing Les.

I'll keep you posted. I'm taking Bad Karma's advice and in the mornings I'm taking in 40 lbs of corn on pack frame to rattle snake ridge for morning hunts. Seems kind of crazy, but remember who's sending this message.

I always go in as quiet as possible in the morning with no lights if possible and no extra corn. I find they are laid up close to the feeders and if you make too much commotion will blow them out. Maybe over thinking it some but BK has had a bit of success down there I'd say.

I've shot several doing just what you said Boothill. I'm just going to try something different this time. I never shot one at rattlesnake ridge.

Look forward to hearing some reports from Shiloh Vets, our group will be following weekend of Skippy hunt. This is either year 15-16, all conversations I have had with new owners have been great looking forward to meeting them, and as always will be great to see Les! Plan on posting a thread following or during my hunt this year, will only make get you chomping at the bit a little more Fox!

Skippy and Ksbow you guys have a great time and keep us posted. It will be great fun.

FWK, you'll have some fun. I think they run the roads because we walk the roads, and they can find us. Plus, they are used to feeding in the roads at the midday food run.

Last time I was at Shiloh, they were running a lot in the mid afternoon before folks were headed to the stands. But, I managed to find one taking a nap, and snuck to about ten years, converting that nap into a dirt nap.

We have shot more than one early in the afternoon just off the road.

I can't stay away from that place. My home away from home. Looking forward to meeting the new owners and seeing Big Country again. I will miss Matt & Cheryl though.

Hunt was good, lots of big hogs. Hogs did not hit the feeders very well so we did spot and stalk. Jon and Linda are good folks. Less was great as always. Weather was terrible, monsoon rain Friday and very cold Saturday morning. Everyone left camp Saturday night because of work commitments on Sunday.
