    Headed out Thursday to go to Dilley, Texas to take my Dad on our second annual hog hunting trip. Was able to take him hunting last September for his first ever trip to south Texas. Man was that a hot weekend. Should be a few degrees cooler this time of year, but not by much. Just thankful that I can give him a chance to do something he normally wouldn't do. Is not nearly enough to pay him back for what he has done for me, but a start.

    Photos and video to follow.

    It is supposed to be 99 in Dilley today and 100 tomorrow. It is going to be 99 today here in Devine just north of y'all.

    Good Hunting,

    Dad finally got his south Texas pig. Took him until Sunday morning, but he got it done. We killed 13 pigs, one javalina, one coyote and a raccoon.

    Bob,

    It was a great time. Just to spend time with my Dad like that was worth dealing with the heat.

    I had a sun shade on my scope and i guess it didn't get screwed on tight, so when I shot it fell off and hit the barrel. I couldn't figure out what the sound was either until I looked at the gun then down on the ground. I really don't miss much but thought I would include on my video, made a good clip anyway.
