Work and a little Hunting June 27-29

About 12 friends got together to help paint a hunting lodge of the gentelman that lets us hunt hogs at his deer lease southeast of Dilley. We arrived Thursday night, unloaded all the tools and gear got a little sleep. Awoke the group at 5 AM to get the first hunt out of the way so the work could begin.

For the weekend we put on 43 gallons of paint and still need another 40 gallons. Replaced 6 sheets of T-111 siding and need to replace three more but bees got in the way. Powerwashed three other trailers, replaced a ceiling in two rooms trimmed trees down several Senderos and still got to shoot 13 hogs.

It was hot and a lot of water was cosumed but no one got hurt so it was a really good weekend. The pigs were seen but seem to be on a different pattern. they also must be more nocturnal because we had to wait until dark for most of the shots. We did shoot more bigger boars this time then any time before. I guess the heat has everything shut down, this was the first time we hunted this time of year at this place. This makes 132 hogs taken off this place and still groups of 40 to nearly 100 hogs were seen this weekend.

    glad to see someone has had time to shoot some piggies i sure have'nt. looks like you had a good time and got quite a bit of work done to boot. i built a deck and covered patio at the ranch last weekend and today so my mother could sit outside during the evenings. i'm going to have to shoot a few pretty quick freezers getting low on pork
