Jeffe, my son and I got home at 1:30 am this morning (Monday). Whitworth and his 3 friends (including bfrshooter) should have left at 3am this morning for their 14 hour drive home. TBear and his friend were going to leave at about the same time for their 22 hour drive to upstate New York. I will leave it to Whitworth to document the event for posterity. My son and I had a GREAT time. I was able to put faces to "handles", and all the guys were great guys.

I can't sleep in a car and when too tired I can't fall asleep easy. We were trying to survive on 2 to 3 hours sleep.
I worked 41 out of 42 years on afternoon shift so I didn't have to get up with a stupid alarm clock
Marko is probably zonked out at work yet.
It feels great to stay in bed in the mornings! wave

Sorry for the delay, folks, but I'm burried in work.

We had a great time despite the weather conspiring against us. There is a dry spell happening in Florida and the hogs weren't moving, staying near water sources. Keep in mind that this is a free ranging operation and not fenced in. So, we were at the mercy of mother nature.

We came from all over, but the long distance award goes to TBEAR and is friend Jeff (who got a great hog!), making the trek all the way down from New York.

Here is a group photo before the first hunt on Saturday morning.



The first hunt had all of us in ground blinds or tree stands. On our way out to the stands we saw a rather large hog tooling down the road. This was a good sign! But, it proved to be a false sign. We saw no movement in our stands (anyone who did, feel free to correct me). The first afternoon hunt went about the same.

The next morning proved to be the same way for me, but it was pretty cool, so we thought there might be some movement. Again, nothing.

Ah, but the evening proved a bit different. I was moved to another stand, but it was bust. Near dark, I heard two shots. I climbed down, expecting my ride to show up, and the outfitter/guide, Pete, pulled up shortly thereafter and told me he saw a group of hogs a couple hundred yards off of the road and he shot two so that we could take some meat home. Problem was that he had one wounded, but he had no more ammo. So, we hauled back and I put a finisher in a 200-lb sow. We dragged the two pigs all the way back to the truck, and commenced to picking up the hunters.

When we got to TBEAR's friend, Jeff, he was all smiles. For a good reason. He put a nice 180-200-lb boar with a nice set of ivory with his Redhawk in .44 mag with 240 grain hollow-points (and no, they didn't exit!).





It's dark now and we are still rounding hunters up. I am in the truck in the front seat when we come upon a small boar in the road. Pete yells, "shoot it!" and I was already squeezing on the ass end of a hog disappearing into the brush. But, there was a report or two coming from thebed of the truck, as a fusilade of fire poured down on the poor little piggy. We think Mike hit it in the rear end, and the back end of the hog was rendered useless -- but he still took off. I jump out, .475 in one hand, flashlight in the other. Mike takes another shot in the dark and misses, so do I! My next one-handed shot hits the mark (shoulder), but the little pig refuses to concede defeat. So, I pulled my .44 mag, and put its lights out with a shot to the head. Hey, I was just glad we got one!

That says it all. Thought I was in Afganistan for a moment! My son, Paul, did get a shot (and missed) on the first day. Thanks for not mentioning that! He was embarrassed to say the least.
Paul is itching to get back there. With it only being 2 1/2 hours from the house we might do that.
Anyway, again, we had a great time. Thanks again for organizing this hunt.
BACON DOWN!

If you don't miss every now and again, you don't hunt much........stuff happens! At least Paul took a shot -- and it was a tough shot that would have been hard to make for anyone.

Hey, it was my pleasure! I may be heading back there in May!

Last time I hunted there, jwp and I got four hogs........

Yeah! And he wouldn't share! It should be pointed out that Jeff's shot was a 50 yard shot with open sights. It pretty much anchored the hog, so it must have been a good one. Nice shooting!

Most definitely! He did the deed and then some!

That Margarita wasn't very good. Good thing I ordered the bucket o'margarita as they cut us off shortly afterwards.........probably for a good reason! Big Grin

My opinion is that even though conditions were poor and not many pigs were seen, Pete Kemmsies was a great guy and went out of his way for us.
Then a finer bunch of guys I ever met, I would hunt with any of them at any time. Tbear is a card!
Lack of sleep was the only problem and my eyes were sunk so far it pushed more hair off the back of my head! dancing Made me miss a meal one night. I enjoyed being with all of you guys but will forever hate the drive down and back.
