Good luck to Our next group of hunters headed to Florida to hog hunt. The first group did pretty daggone good.
So what about the new Hog season in Feb., Is it an extra tag, if you had killed one in 2018? I'm still confused about these new seasons. Bob
Good luck guys.
Lonnie Sneed scored yesterday evening .
Looks like a nice one. Real cute too.
That hog is still smiling.
Jimmy shot a big one this morning. So far Lonnie has 2 Jimmy 1 and I have 1
Wow, that’s A big one!
Good looking crew. Congrats Jimmy
Big al got one this evening
Congrats! Never got one myself - are they similar eating to a domestic hog?
Jim has 2 ,Al has 2 Lonnie has 2 and I have 2 .
I thought the hot sausage from mine last year was the best I’ve ever had. No kidding.
Thanks!!! One of these days I need to go on a hog hunt.
The hot sausage was fantastic and the rest of it was good also.
Front shoulders make the best bbcue ever. Slow cook them in crockpot and pull off. Mix in bbcue sauce with some of the juice and let cook two more hours. Its fantastic.
I have to agree with JW. Shoulders are the best. I put mine on the grill and charcoal smoke 'em for a bit then put in the slow cooker with a package of dry onion soup mix and a little liquid (we use chicken broth). Shred and mix with BBQ sauce like JW said. Ummmmm!
2 today for a total of 10.
That’s great. Congrats to all hunters.
Got to the house about 9:30 last night. As always, had a great time at Osceola Oufitters. This trip was my 15th year in a row.
It was unusually cool this year and the acorn crop was so heavy the pigs were spread out all over the ranch, so hunting on stands, and even with the dogs was tough. Spot and stalk was a no-go at all because the pigs weren't feeding in the rye fields like usual and the woods were so dry it was impossible to "slip up" on anything.
Great pics Jim. My wife likes the piglet!
Could you share your set up? Being a trad guy I would like to know your bow and arrow specs as well as broad head selection.
Thanks and congrats on another great hunt.
Yeah, the little feller was just wandering around camp. He sure had wild genes.
I'm having quite the time with a pinched nerve and had to reduce weight. The bow I was shooting was 40# at my draw length. It's a 21" Hoyt Satori riser with medium Uukha Vx1000 Evo2 Xcurve limbs--shooting off the shelf, 64". The arrow was a full length, 32" .400 Goldtip with a 260 grain Grizzly broadhead up front. I figured since I had to reduce bow weight, I'd increase arrow weight to compensate. I dialed the bow in with a 15 yard fixed crawl... so... anything from point blank to 15 yards had about a 3" gap. In other words, put the broadhead on the shoulder and kill'm. :^)
I've put Grizzly broadheads thru both shields on several boar hogs over the years with 44 and 45# bows, so I wasn't concerned at all about how they would perform.
Thanks for the info Jim. I shoot both 50 and 44 # recurves. Will probably take both. Shooting 600 and 500 grain arrows with Simmons Tigersharks (175g.) and a 100 g. brass insert in the arrows for the 50# bow.
