Default 8/21 hunt hog

well,my oldest son moved back from Kentucky this week and with the rain decided to bust his cherry( hopeful that was).got started a little after dark and the dogs were rarin to go.hit all the usual fieldsand haunts real slow with the dogs hooded ,nothin.bout the time we make a big turn headed for the house ,Rosco bout broke his neck gettin off the hood ,but the young athelete,Ranger ,was on his way before Rosco got off ,which i have never seen or heard him do it before . guess Rosco could'nt stand it and was yappin as he come off the hood tryin to catch up to the young dog. the moon was just right as we shut off the trucks to watch and listen. in an old wheat stubble field we could see a silouette of what i thought were cattle ,and the dogs just a hammerin on em. the CATTLE broke and this big black yealing was barrelin right back to us,dogs hot on his heals.at that point could have shot em but the closer they got the yearling turned into a pretty goo sized hog headed right at us. at the fence the hog did a little manuvere called ,find me in this little clump of johnson grass,right in front of us .dogs ran thru on to the road lookin for pig ,nadda. had the bulldog out luckily and some helpers. 2 young pups came right in front of our feet and started hammerin away.by then we could smell em real strong. the oldetr dogs made a sweep and came right back and STRUCKin the barditch. sent old Zeke to meet mister pig and the fight was on. after a little ruckus we could hear em headin down the fence draggin Zeke.he finally got him stopped about 30 yrd. down the fencerow .my youngest grabbed leggs and began to try a flip,nadda.grabbed a front leg and down he went against the Barbwire.i think the wind died immediately when he was down cause we were ringinwet in 1 minute.hobbles weren't big enough to fit on the fat a$$ so we had to double em up and use some mule tape on top. ever tried to workthe bad side of a hog with a ,good set of teeth.dont like it at all.finallygot Zeke off and out from under the bottom side. 12:01 when we shut the motor off 12:21 hog loaded.checked all thedogs only damage was to zeke.pcture in throat, left foreleg,rear stiffle(worst ) and didnt know how close he came to gettin gutted until we got home and checked everthing in good light,4 inch skin cut in front of his( business)crossways.so close.be out of pocket for a while . pics. sorry but no action shots just the after
