I don’t know how many times I’ve missed a duck, deer or pig due to looking at my phone while I’m out hunting, but it’s a number for sure. In this case, I was doing my best Marty Stouffer impression when the wind shifted. The pigs smell me, get antsy and eventually take off.
Except for one straggler. She died. I waited till sundown hoping the herd would return, but they didn’t.
She was much bigger than I expected. I thought maybe 80 pounds when I shot, but she was closer to 120-130 lbs. Getting these big pigs into the back of the truck is getting to be an issue.
Saturday is looking like a good time. Duck hunting, sausage making, and then Christmas fun with the fam.
What are you up to this weekend?
