I would like to thank Patrick for his efforts on this hunt as well, and his enthusiasm in the hunt for the 'Trap Hog' from the beginning. I was so tickled for him and his success at the 'Double Tank', and now this was icing on the cake as this tank was a bit more personable for me due to the week before's events for Joe and I.  During our chasing to fill our Javie tags I was always dreaming of hog hunting this tank as hogs are my 1st love. I can't tell you how many times I glassed this area across the pond from the berm on the other side while 'directing traffic'.  Very special guys, hard to describe and I'm sure hard for some to grasp.  "If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand" definitely applies here....

I am not sure enthusiasm applies.  More like addicted/driven despite being sick as a dog, lol.  Great looking sow and great shooting Terry. Very surprised that she was alive an hour after the shot and with that blood trail. Always something to learn for me.  Bad luck not getting the heart, but I have become fond of saying that not all double lung hits are created equal.

Looks like there isn't much interest so I'll pass on the other pics and info on the double lung.   Had a blast with you guys in camp, looking forward to next year you repeat offenders.

Steve, it was an honor to hunt with you this year after Crain a couple of years before,  you really inspire me sir! Thank you for doing those javalina a favor. I will pass that quote along for many years.... best to you sir.  :campfire:

I am going to agree with Patrick on that Terry. I know it was somewhat of an oddball thing but to look at that shot placement how it wasn’t dead in seconds is interesting. The explanation is worth going over.

The buck above was a pretty constant companion the last couple days. He ruined a couple opportunities for us as well.

What a fun hunt though. Lots of javies running around that place. Can’t wait to have at them again.

Should have taken a selfie of me sick and laying in bed.  Spent a lot of daylight hours doing that.

Too funny... Patrick and I waiting in the truck for each other was suspenseful for sure... 3 nights in a row it ended perfect, well sort of, we tailed out at daylight to fetch out quarry. .... which we did...... great memorable stuff.
