Last Hunting adventure of the season

Traveled to south of Memphis Texas for a hog hunt

Information I got was we were to have clean cabin accomidations this is it.... The fridge worked .... They must have stored gasoline for the vehicle in the trailer... Very strong smell all weekend...Not sure what year of manufacture it was But, It is a holiday rambler..

Transportation provided, skybox seats included, it is a wild ride especially at 5:30am in the dark and about 40 deg.


This picture shows a game feeder, they are solar powered and have timers to spread corn arount to entice the game.. The blinds are set anywhere from 60 to 130 yard away for clear shots of the pigs


If you zoom (click on the picture) in on this picture you can see an white-tail deer buck enjoying the corn that has been deposited on the ground, eariler there were 5 doe white-tail deer enoying the corn also. During the stay at this blind only wildlife I saw was deer and doves .. lots of doves..


This shows a windmill and abandond place the named Hermit Bob's after a fella that lived here in the past. This place is just right of the feeder in the picture above


The video below was taken approx. at 8 am on Feb. 10th. it was a very calm and warm morning if you turn up the sound you can hear the birds singing, the video is almost 1 minute long


Camp dog named "Red",

They thought we would track hogs ..

did'nt work out, nice dog though


Large firepit, notice the easy chairs for serious campfire watching !
