In the last few weeks our hogs have gone totally nocturnal. My daughter reviewed the cam pics Saturday and patterned the hogs. She determined they've been showing up between 2 am - sunup more often than any other window. We slept a few hours then headed to the stand Sunday morning around 1:30 am.

We were hunting two locations about 1/2 mile apart. I heard her shoot around 2:45 am. She call me on the walkies and said "That was me dad - Boar is DRT". This is her 4th hog and our 5th at the new lease since we moved from Eastland to SS May 1. We shot two that crossed over to the adjoining property and I missed two shots. We've seen 4 others that we couldn't put a scope on.

I believe we had a fair number of pigs on the lease smile



Boar weighted 144 on the scale. We kept the back straps and hams.

A couple of pics added.

Yep, the hogs where I hunt have been nocturnal for at least several weeks now, but I can usually catch one or two still wandering about at dawn.

You know it's a good shot when they're still under the feeder. Congrats!
