So, a buddy of mine is going through a rough patch with his wife that is fighting lung cancer. Sometimes he gets real down and calls me to talk. I wanted to give him a little break from real life, if just for a moment, so I invited him down to hunt hogs. He is always talking about how he wants to kill a HogZilla one day. I was pretty sure I had a decent size hog on my land and set out to find him. My buddy has bad knees so I carted him around in my EZ-GO Trail Hog and found a heard of hogs holed up in an impenetrable wild plum thicket. They would not come out the first day of the hunt. We could hear them fighting, but the only way to get to them was to crawl in on our hands and knees, and that was not happening. Lol!

So the second day doenloaded some hog sounds to my phone, just as a last ditch effort kind of thing. Watch how fast it worked.

Here is a little video I put together for my buddy after the hunt. I wanted him to have something to remember it by and that he could take home to his wife who canít get out much these days.

That is awesome for you to give him a break from his reality. I am sure it helped his wife as well, knowing he had that break from the day to day worry.

Just curious where did you find those hog sounds for your phone?
