Oops. Almost forgot. A closer one of Ms.Mohawk.


 
The old order is passing. Swiftly receding into memory are the days of strong, earnest men who followed an atavistic yearning to pit their skills against wild animals.

Micheal have you had a chance to cook any yet. That is one of the best looking hogs I have had the pleasure of helping anyone skin out here.

Do you know how long Biggie has been trying to get one?  I think you took a little piece of his soul with this big boy..

Congrats!! I was a pleasure spending the weekend with you and Terry.

That was great and some mighty fine hogs taken. It really got me fired up for my hog hunt in Florida at the end of Feb.

Looks like a great time was had by all, can't wait until I can get a hunt together with some tradgangers. What a blast.

Yep. I've been hunting that place for oh, 12 years now I guess. I don't know how many hogs I've killed there, a bunch, but have not ever had a chance at one like that.

I don't think Michael realized at 1st what a trophy he had taken.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.....well, lemmie think about that????

Yeah, those bar hogs are pretty cool. All the do is eat and sleep since they aren't interested in the females. And since they don't fight they have no shield and their tusks are in great shape.

Thanks for sharing the hunt!  It brought back many memories of my first successful hog hunt that was in Okeechobee land this past fall.  Any more I think I would rather hunt hogs than deer.

It has been cold up here! This past january we have had more mornings in the single digits and negatives than I can remember.  -16 was the coldest on the mountain.  We have had permanent snow coverage since before Christmas.  today we got a high of 30 and I was out walking around in a t shirt!  

Oh how I miss camp, and my girlfriend Peanut (Remember what happens in camp stays in camp) But she found that hog and that makes her my HERO too! Giver her a hug and a kiss for me.
 
I do hope to get down in March to try for some of those Osceola turkey again but you know how I feel about hogs.  Huntin deer just aint the same!

Pete, Peanut found one of Terry's hogs and we only had to pull her back onto the track ONCE.
She's getting better!

Yeah...that was cool Curt.....and it is fun to go back and read the text messages as they unfolded just like we did at Solana.

I've had some folks as me about what woods were used to make that Sunbear....so I'll get ahold of Charlie and see if he'll chime in....

What??? ...Did Biggie say something about my sixpack???  :saywhat:
