Filmed a Florida Hog Hunt
« on: December 15, 2016, 05:53:50 pm »
Met up with Ryan Gill for a public land deer hunt.  While he complained about the antler restrictions as we rode out to the woods and I was half (totally?) asleep, we got out there well before sun up as any serious hunter would.  Ryan had a spot that was going to be covered in deer and as we walked out to it we got a little stopped up.  There were a few feeding pigs in the bushes by the path we were walking.  3 pigs in the bush is worth more than well... nothing in the hand.  So I let the camera roll and Ryan's killer instinct took over and we ended up with a dead pig.  So here's the video I took.  I hope y'all enjoy!

Nice video, good shooting and trailing in that thick, wad, of Gall berries. I've run into more rattlesnakes crawling through that crap blood trailing, it's never fun.

Fun vid to watch, Mr Tim.

Thanks guys!  We got really lucky sneaking in on those pigs in the first 10 minutes of the first hunt.

outbackbob48, I actually just sold it today to the gentleman in the picture.  I wished him well and hoped he'd enjoy it as much as I did.

Excellent! Thanks for sharing.

A friend and I hunted Three Lakes Wildlife Area for turkeys several years back and as we walked into the area, in the dark I noticed movement beside me. We stopped and realized we had walked into a group of around 20 pigs. I guess they were feeding and thought our movement was part of the group. Didn't take long after we stopped for one to smell us and they all bolted off into the palmettos. Was cool but a little spooky for a minute.

Nice video Tim and good hunting Ryan.  Tim, you look too clean-cut in that one pic.
