Dang, lucky guess on my part! What's on the little ridge just north of the area you took pics of? Looking at the pic and hearing what you say about the terrain across the creek, I think Id start putting my efforts there. Nice drawing BTW. CK

In my experience Clay you are going to find the big boars bedded up in the pine thicket, kind of backed up to that pond if the prevailing wind works to his benefit...if you can get in there (lots of briars usually) you will find some real heavy trails and cut up pine trees, wallows, etc..and your bigger boars will have themselves a few spots in there..but getting there without being detected and the hog exiting ahead of you will be a tough assignment.

CK,

I have a question about night hunting.

I know you do some hog hunting at night. If sufficient moonlight isn’t available have you ever used a small battery powered light in a new set up location. I know you used that battery powered light at the bamboo blind but I didn't know if you had tried this somewhere else.

I have no clue how that would affect the game. I thought I would ask for any opinions.

Thanks,

Chris

The same lights you used at my house have worked cole-calling elsewhere as well. There is a new light I am awaiting right now. Mark Horne has recently discovered a blue light similar to the green I already use. He tells me he has done minimal experimenting with it but is extreemly impressed. If mine arrives soon, I'll let you try it at Texas Sweat. CK

Say, Terry...

Thats a handsome buffalo pedastal mount!

Think I will order some of that stuff to try, Clay. I bet it will be great on turkey breast fingers!

A friend just sent me this illustration of hog anatomy and I thought it was pretty neat. Looks like the visual top of the leg is the place to shoot to get the top of the heart and both lungs under the scapula...assuming it it accurate..

That's a really good illustration Beachbowhunter, if I am broadside to a pig I always feel that the heart shot is not on unless the leg is foward. 90% of my shots on pigs are quatering away...Glenn...

That's a great pic!!  I just sent it to my pig rookie partners for an upcoming hunt.  The worst thing you can hear from a partner is "I think it was a little back"  when hunting pigs.

Thanks!

Yea Mike, I've heard that way too many times. The other saying is "I swear, I hit him perfect".... That also translates to, "the shot was a bit far back".. LOL!

Shoot them quartering away or break that danged shoulder bone!!! CK

I mentioned in one of my posts on this thread about hog "beds". Just found a photo of one with my recurve sitting next to it for perspective..the recurve is a 60 inch bow...

Here's a pic of a tree the hogs evidently love to rub in one of the areas I hog hunt. This particular tree is in a low spot in a dike that separates a swamp from the hardwoods. I kept planning to come back and sit on this spot but never did as I was having to much fun chasing the hogs...
   
LONG LIVE THE LONGBOW!
