Cold. Very cold. Made it through the first night though. The pigs are in trouble when my fingers thaw out.

Just got home. Got on a few pigs, but couldn't get close enough for a shot. Met some new folks and had a great time. Thanks Dendy for setting this up. Looking forward to next time.

I had a blast. This was the best turnout in a few years. great hunt! I believe everybody at least SAW some pigs, but funky wind and super dry conditions made stalking tough. There were a couple arrows that saw some action. I'll let the guys that shot them tell those stories. All in all- a great time! Thanks to everybody that turned out. Can't wait to do it again. I'm hoping that Chris Harper will post up a couple pictures.

It was a fun weekend for sure. I got REALLY close to 4 pigs Friday afternoon, but in some crazy thick brush. I tried to wait em out, and it nearly worked. But when your that close you better get it done cause the wind will eventually shift. And it did. .. I walked some pretty woods and saw game more than once. Sat around a big fire with some fine fellows. It was really a good time. Except....... I need a better sleeping bag.

I love hunting Chickasawhatchee and look forward to this hunt every year. I got to sink my Muck boots in swamp mud and hunted over good sign for 3 days. I love it when you are deep in a swamp right before dark and a hoot owl sounds off. We had some good campfires and good tales. Thanks, Dendy for hosting this hunt and especially for the firewood. I think we burnt close to half a cord trying to stay warm.

Had a great time . What a bunch of awesome dudes with sticks. They can diffinately shoot , they wore me out on the target at camp. Stuck a big sow and tracked her for 600 yds thru the swamp after dark before we lost her in the water. One hole and one lung just dont work. Good shot placement for a 24yd shot though. Look foward to some more of these. Thanks Dendy.

This hunt was a blast! Seems like everyone got on pigs and had a good time. I finally met some folks that I have talked to either on here or on the phone, so that was awesome.





There were plenty of close encounters and a couple shots fired! I got on pigs every time I went out. Sometimes it took a good bit of walking, but they were in there. It was hard hunting with everything being so dry. Getting close was a real challenge. I snuck up on a few deer that I was able to get on video, with the matriarch doe coming within 18 yards before blowing and flagging out. Another time I thought I was on pigs, but it ended up being an armadillo. I did what any sensible person would have done that wasted 20 minutes trying to get on top of pigs would have done and finished the stalk and touched it to scare the mess out of it. Got that one on video too. Saturday morning it seemed like I was in pigs the entire time I was in the woods. Flung an arrow into one and tracked blood for over an hour, but alas, the shot wasn't deadly. Pretty sure I hit it smack dead in the shoulder. There were pigs moving all over the place while I was tracking but the area was so thick, I couldn't even consider shooting.



I'm thankful for all the hospitality that was shown around camp and all the stories that were exchanged. I really look forward to seeing everyone again.

I haven't finished unpacking for this trip that I didn't make. Hate I missed it but it worked out for the best, have been sick with bronchitis. Thanks for all the reports, I sure enjoyed reading about it!! Maybe next year if my 70 year old body is able.
