Blackie.....Are you doing burns all day? That raspberry preserves, sugar, raspberry tea or punch burn was great for me. I'd get some of that Capri Sun and splash around on the trees and logs. I haven't been doing this long, but If he hasn't been around for awhile he may just be a big boar that is going around his home range and hitting the food spots. One book said that a boars home range can be upwards of 40 square miles. Hopefully he's not sitting in someone elses' freezer. Other than getting some unbelievable scents into the air & woods it may just be a patience thing until he gets back to your site. Are you doing all you can with scent mgmt. and movement? Could he have seen you or your daughter and abandoned the site?
If you're not doing burns....HotMoon had talked about 6 hour or more sterno.....I couldn't find it by me but he said to try camping stores.....maybe this would help so you could keep it going longer......also, I did two burns, one down at my site up in a tree and the other up in a tree next to my stand......I could feed it throughout the day when the sterno went out.....more ideas.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
