Its been slow around my house other than work lately, no hunting or shooting. The wife and I our going down to south Arkansas later this month to visit with our daughter. From there were going on down to Shreveport and Bossier city LA to the boardwalk and Bass Pro so I can get me a Nikon Omega for my new Triumph ML. When she is all sighted in and ready I'm gonna take her up to the cabin and try to break her in on a hog. Here is a pic of one I shot last fall with my bow.

I used to think that - until we got them. Now we're doing everything we can to eliminate them. They do make a fine meal though.

gregrn43 - that is one heck of a nice looking hog -HUGE!!!


Semi - I made the mistake of suggesting one time at the gun club 'wouldn't it be nice to have wild hogs and be able hunt them' HUGE MISTAKE Most of the folks at the club are wheat/barely/lentil/cattle farmers - they just about come un-glued.

Bet they would send you a batch of our wolves though...
