As is our Monday routine, the Hessian and I headed to Bosque County to hunt in the oats. On the way down, storms formed over our hunt area and it rained fairly heavily, but had stopped raining by the time we arrived. We checked cams and got parked when we noticed hogs out in the field - a good sign!
When was all said and done, we had 670 lbs of hogs at the bottom of a hill in a muddy field. So they were donated back to nature further down the hill in the bottoms.

Nice! I also hunt in Bosque County, actually just got back from hunting yesterday and the night before, unfortunately no luck though. I was stumped, no wallows on any pond on the lease, no fresh rooting anywhere there usually is, and no signs of anything but cows along the creek.
Yeah, dT, you know, it only looked like about 20 hogs, which was a lot for me, but when they broke out of the oats and into the clear, those little ones just kept coming and coming. I will admit to being a little overwhelmed at seeing so much movement and so many targets as to not reacting quickly enough. Of course, that is partially how group defense works for herd animals against predators.
