On the tail end of this storm front I wanted to see what I could see. It was a pretty peaceful morning with zero wind, cool temps and occasional drizzle or mist.

Because water was running in the draw I sat in a stand looking through a slot across it. There's a feeder pen at the end of the slot.



The grass and clover is strong and over knee height. Pigs are a bit of a challenge to see when moving through it.



Though not difficult to spot once they enter the pen. One panel is raised about a foot and a half to allow them in. These guys are maybe 40 to 60 lbs I guess. I'm really enjoying my little S&W 300 Blackout combined with the black tipped TSX. Top it with a 2x7 and it's, well, lethal.



Unfortunately my ladder, which barely survived the 'coon incident, finally met its demise.



It was a good morning.

Been a member for a long time, but rarely hunt, so no contributions from me.

But, I have to ask. Where is the kill shot on the ladder? I only see the blood...... smile

This is the shot the ladder survived, barely. Three of four legs through and though.



Don't have a wound photo of the fatal shot. As you can see though in the OP, it was a messy encounter. I didn't go poking around...

Good outing, but never seen a ladder bleed that much, usually much less grin
