Default Good start

I made a couple of hunts to start the season. I took the 22 mag looking for hogs. First hunt only spooked one with very little fresh sign. It is really dry in the pearl right now. I saw a ton of squirrels, so my next hunt I went for them little bushy tails. After more misses then I care to admit I found out my scope was off and I was shooting under them. I corrected but only got one to show for it on my second hunt. My third hunt last Saturday I made another go for the hogs. I knew I had to really get in there to find the deep sloughs that were still holding water. I finally got deep enough and the wind and time were right. I spy a small sounder of 4-5 about 50 yards out. The lead hog was a beauty black and white spotted looking like a Holstein. I moved up cutting the angle and got 20-30 yards from where they filling through. That little Holstein was the perfect size for carrying out but didnít hold long enough for the shot. One by one they all move through without giving me a solid shot and each one bigger than the last. Bringing up the rear is a nice white sow. Feeling the urgency I took a deep breath and she held just long enough for me to pull the trigger. She dropped in her tracks. Still kicking a little I put one more in her skull to end it. Itís now ten to 5 and Iíll be losing light soon. I finally made it back to the SUV at 7:10 after a mile drag out and a half mile kayak back to the launch. Iím always worried about dirt getting on the meat so I brought her home whiole. She tipped the scale at 99lbs. Skinned and gutted her that night then broke her down the rest of the way in the morning. She had a nice layer of fat so I decided to keep the ribs and try smoking them. Iím just happy my freezer is getting work again. Now to focus on venison.
