Headed down to our place this weekend. Filled feed shredded and a few other odds and ends. Pulled cam chips and had quite a few hogs hitting one of our bow set ups. Didn't have the bow with me so decided to sit it with my brothers marlin 45-70. Mosquitoes were horrible but other than that it was a short pleasant sit. Climbed into the tripod at 6 and around 6:30 I had two boars around 150 lbs come in. They looked pretty spooky and were smelling where I had walked in and then testing the air. I got ready but hoped they would stick around for the feeder to go off and maybe I would get a nice sow or one of the bruisers that had been on the cams. The first one spooked and darted off I shot this one on the run for the brush. First shot was hi and back but knocked him down enough to load and put a finisher on him as he was making it to the brush line. Second shot was square on the shoulder and laid him down good!



Felt bad I shredded over the top of what I would guess is a quail nest, the next morning a karakara ate all but 3 of the eggs, think it was abandoned. Saw dozens of quail all shapes and sizes from little bitty guys to full grown birds, should be a healthy year for them.

Good shooting. Shame about the eggs, but I guess Caracaras got to eat too.
