Re: pa hog hunt
When I was in Texas I was fortunate enough to hunt a co-worker's ranch out by Burnet. I shot a half-dozen hogs, some big, some not as big. I wandered and got lost after shooting a hog on the run and gutting and dragging to the road where an hour after dark they came looking for me and found me. That was fun. Real fun. The rest were shot over feeders and offered no more challenge than at a preserve. Some preserves may be barnyard, others are fun challenging hunts. When we used to travel to a friend (guy stood up in my wedding in '97 - he's a good friend) in Macon GA we used to shoot them from the truck. Yeah they were wild but I wouldn't consider that more sporting than a good preserve. I've killed better than twenty hogs in my entire lifetime, most wild down south or in Texas. I've killed five at preserves. I enjoyed the preserves most because it was a scheduled deal with friends that we looked forward to and did together. And the meat was all very good. Shooting a hog at a feeder in East Texas while waiting to see a deer was fun, but didn't get the heart pumping. Saw them everytime out on that ranch. Saw them while driving on the ranch roads, while sitting on the ranch porch, while sitting in deer blinds, etc. About as sporting as a trip to the grocery store. The preserves are what you make of them.
