Who did you go with again?I got back from my trip yesterday, it's roughly a 5.5 hour drive including a couple quick stops. Our first night I had a single boar sneak in and I heard the corn crack. My site had no others show up the rest of the trip. Strange thing was that I saw no deer and only one racoon in the 3 afternoon / nights I hunted. My boar weighed 150 pounds before field dressed and skinned. The retired butcher down there that the guys have used in the past was booked solid because it was shotgun and rifle season for deer. I had to quarter my boar Sunday morning, ice it and bring it home. There is no one around here that will do it or has the time. Tonight I hacked up the 4 qtrs and tomorrow night I'll do the body. Trying to get some ribs and boneless chops. We will see how it goes.
The boar hanging on the left is mine. There was 4 of us in our party on Thursday night and we took two pigs. There was six of us Friday and Saturday nights. Only two more pigs were taken on Saturday night. Not sure if I'll ever do it again because I can buy alot of great processed pork for what that trip cost. The experience was cool the first night, After that it pretty much sucked with no pigs roaming around.
