    Last weekend it was the start of youth turkey season. I took my great nephew on his first hunt. He was pretty excited.

    And so was I.

    That was last weekend. This weekend bow season opened for turkeys. I got one today.

    I'm glad no was was around with a camera while I chased it down. It went around and around a cedar tree while I was chasing it on my hands and knees.

    After 3 years of hunting pig at night, I finally got a shot to bring one home. Pardon the pun and blurry pic....my heart was racing

    Amazing how no one really is paying attention while driving....135# hog on a hitch carrier,uncovered through downtown Atlanta and nary a glance.

    It had rained right before I left home, so I opted to stalk as nothing was on our camera at the corn pile for at least a few days. I hiked out towards my car and peed on the way, dropping my gear pretty loudly. Not a second after I pulled up my pants, I heard rustling just off the road. I clicked on my 15$ Amazon red light. And there were 3 standing there nosing around, quietly. All about the same size. I chose to one closest to the road. I didn't loose anything but cheek meat as I was able to get within 10 yards. Dressed out and in a cooler. I'm in bed by 2 am. Exhilarating....very tasty.

    Hey, when a bridge burns and falls down who cares about a pig in a hitch carrier!?!

    In any case, nice catch.

    A few guys went in and cut the stalks with chainsaws. I cleaned up the mess. Next up is a small excavator and we've got more habitat!

    I broke my wrist last fall right before deer season, hitting a dam doe with my Tenere. Had to sit out the entire season due to the plates and screws the ortho doc left me with.

    I was checking the deer cams at the farm today. We have a nice 12 point and an average 11 point starring in several nocturnal videos. Twice they were in the same video, once with a spike also. The soybeans on the farm are all eaten down around the edges and the bean fields look great for sign. I went straight home and started polishing 30-06 cartridges. I have a score to settle with them. Hopefully, pictures to come.

    My buddy grabbed these 2 little guys the other day....I almost had a few myself, but I took the dog with me. Bad choice. We stumbled upon 5 young pigs with no mama in a wallow and as soon as Olive figured out what they were, all hell broke lose! She came back with a huge gash right by her eye. Anyway, anyone have any tips for scalding the hair off of a wild pig? We did what we could and ended up skinning them.

    I'v been in on a few hog hunts. We just skinned them. When i was young we had hog killings ( usually on a cold as crap day) of domestic hogs. After shooting them. We had a huge barrel of boiling water, dip the pig in it for a while, remove and scrape the hair off.

    Yeah we had the turkey fryer set up out but mike had already gutted them. So we took a towel an poured the water on them while covered by the towel. While scraping he ended up blowing through the membrane....so we gave up. Hopefully we can kill one when the temps are a bit lower and we can keep the guts in....maybe we should just build a fire.

    My teal trip:
    One dove and loads of nice channel cats, with some bonus bass. There were a few teal on the lake, but not many. 20170910_102058.jpg

    Nice!

    Fishing was great here in Middle TN this year and hoping ducks come back. First week was great then the rest of the season last year was a bummer.
