Back from Texas

I know I have been derelict in my blogging duties but when you are hunting in a remote area of Texas with no cell service or Internet, what can you do? Once again the .30 Rem AR has proven it is a viable big game cartridge – more on that to come. Until then, here is a look at a truly wicked creature that is in a “my taxes got raised” mood. Believe it or not, I let him live.


Jealousy is a terrible thing!

My teeth are sharper than yours!








I guess some things are worth fighting for.

    Did you shoot the female post-copulation? Those wild pigs breed like rats down in Texas(!).

    No. Did not shoot any of the Javelina. They lived in camp with us. Had to kick them out of the way to go to the kitchen or shower.

    No. But, the first night one assaulted me on a midnight run to the bathroom. Scared the, well you know what out of me.

    The next night (morning – 5 AM) the guide shot a bobcat that was trying to eat a deer we had hanging right beside the barn we were sleeping in.
