I see a lot of delicious backstrap in those pics. With proper processing of course. Congrats. I want to do the same thing. If you’re only an hour away from home, don’t worry, the urban sprawl will swallow your property in no time. Can’t stand to see how explosive the growth has been over the last 15 years or so.

Probably happy because they make excellent table fare, and Steve makes some EXCELLENT sausage.

I've trapped 5 hogs in the past two weekends so I'm ready to make a batch of sausage. Should be a little over 100lbs when all done.

Been seeing lots of does and bucks also. I need to get another camera set up on a mineral site this spring.

Ive had hogs for years. Never been able to get one to go in a trap.

Lots of hogs up there. I was dove hunting a corn field off 816 south of Bailey and heard them snorting down by a creek bottom. Perfect set up to sneak around a bend in the tree line. I came out about 20 yards from 2 young boars and a sow with about 10 piglets. I took out the 2 boars while the sow and piglets ran thought the creek bottom. The sow came back out of the brush in the creek bottom when she heard one of the boars squealing. She was not happy to see me standing above her about 15 yards away. I was time for her to get 3 loads of bird shot right between the eyes.

You can never have too much ammo unless you're swimming.
