Hunting Trip Update
May 21, 2012
Well, seems like only yesterday I was in the sweltering Hill Country heat, and now I’m whisked away to the cold, gloom of a rainy Spokane morning. Oh, well, I guess it was only yesterday…
Things are really hopping with the day job right now, so not a lot of time for updates and posts. I did want to share a little about last week’s short hunts. I got a ton of video and a few good photos, but they’re all back in Texas at the Hillside Manor, so all I have is this rough photo of my limited success.
He’s not a bad boar, but since we were hunting axis and fallow deer, he’s not exactly the prize I was planning for. Unfortunately, I couldn’t seem to get an axis doe in front of my rifle. I had an opportunity at a beautiful axis buck, but I didn’t want to pay the tab for that one… this was, after all, a meat hunt.
My little brother did get an axis doe, and while he was really hoping to carry two of them back to his freezer in NC, he was happy to take the majority of my hog with him as a consolation prize.
All in all, a success, even if the freezer is still a little low. There’ll be more hunts, and I’ll have more time to enjoy them.
