Well I'm back from Texas. Friday was terrible to put it mildly. High winds, downpours, hail, etc. Went out between the storms, but no luck- did not even see a hog. Guide had something he needed to do in the morning Saturday so went to a different ranch, but same results for early afternoon hunt. Decided to sit on a winter wheat field for the evening. Just a little before 6pm saw a sounder of about 15-20 at the far end of the wheat (about 600+ yards). Decided to put a stalk on them. Got within about 80 yards and decided to take our shots. Killed an approx 150# sow with a perfect head shot- DRT!. Got a smaller sow (about 100 to 125#) also. Watched the field for a time then decided to get the Ranger and pick up the hogs. Took ranger and hogs back to trailer and noticed a large lone boar working his way across a pasture heading for the wheat. Just as he stepped into the field he sensed something was not right and high tailed it back across the pasture. Decided to sit a little longer. By this time it was dark. We then detected a lone hog (another boar) at about 500 yards on thermal in the wheat. Put on a second stalk and got within about 40-50 yards. Another perfect DRT head shot. Since I needed to get back home and had three hogs for the freezer- decided to call it quits (but I WILL BE BACK TEXAS!!!). Now have to process up all the shoulders, hams, and backstraps. I'm tired (9 hour drive home starting at about 0230 this AM) so they can sit in the cooler on ice until tomorrow. Have pictures just need to get them off my phone.
