Man Hog, you guys get some

Man Hog, you guys get some good ones up there.  Hopefully I wil make it up that way one of these days.  Our pigs in San Diego are still ghosts as of now.  I've always wanted to pig hunt, and have had a tag for a couple of years in case I ran into one down here, but it's like chasing shadows. lol

Congrats!  That's a nice eating one right there!

This weekend is my last hunt for a while.

 I'm having shoulder surgery on dec 20.

The doc is thinking 5 - 6 months off work.

Hopefully it is your off

Hopefully it is your off shoulder and not the one that you draw the bow with. 

You may have to take up pistol hunting.  It is adictive

Good luck with it.

Congrats on a nice hog there,

Congrats on a nice hog there, Hoggetter! Thumbs up

I guess you won't need any sausage for this year with all the hogs you are shooting. It sounds like you make need to buy a bigger freezer. lol

I hope the surgery goes well with no complications. Good luck with it and keep us informed with your progress. Thumbs up

A Real Beauty!

That is a good looking hog!

 And I love the country behind you in that picture. That is so different from what we have around here.

 Is that up north, or in the central part where you live?

I have a cousin who lives in Temecula - is that anywhere near there?

Here's hoping that your recuperation and therapy goes well.

My wife had both knees replaced three years ago next March. Be sure to follow the therapist's advice and do all of the exercises - even if they hurt - and there probably shouldn't be an "IF" in that sentence! 

Right now I know a woman who refused to do the exercises "because it hurts", and she is now almost 6 months past the surgery and cannot walk - probably never will.

Sorry if I sound like I'm talking to a kid - well, looking at your pictue, you're young enough to be my son Big smile

Just a word to the wise - and I think you're a wise guy, right? Thumbs up

Great hunting picture.

Thanks

Jaybe, He hunts in central

Jaybe,

He hunts in central CA.  I live 25 minutes from Temecula, and there are really no pigs to speak of there.  The population has started to grow in the south from some released hogs, and have moved to within about 10-15 miles of there.  There really are no big #'s of them though.

However, it's only a 2 1/2 hour drive or so to where some of the better hunting is, north of Los Angeles on the coast.  I might be taking a trip in the next couple of months.  It's a good thing to do when there are no other seasons going on.
