I hunted with TXBOWHUNTER over the thanksgiving weekend!
the land is vast rugged terrain and everthing bites or sticks! rattlesnake infested ,lost of yotes and jackrabbits!
the morning I killed the javalinas ,I was running too late to get in the stand over a feed station,because I had to drop regi off.So I walked in slowly and quietly from a good vantage point.I could see that there were 2 javalina already there ,so I got in position and shot the sow {the bigger of the 2} from about 80 yards through the lungs with My .243. She made a circle and dropped, the other was gone! it is very sandy there so tracking was easy.I started following the tracks the boar had left ,he busted out of a brush pile and he got a texas heart shot from about 75 yards,he circled and made a run at me ,then killed over in a brush pile!
we saw an awesome muley buck and a few does as well ,but never had a good shot opportunity at the buck!
we also saw 8 rattlers and killed 6 of them !I killed 2 a diamond right at 4 foot with 15 buttons and a prairie 2 foot + with 10 buttons!
thanks for an awesome time TX! good fun with good folks!
