Daytripping Down The Trail
What has two thumbs and is going after hogs again this weekend? Yepper... This Guy! Sure, I may spend a lot of time and money chasing these bristly, tick-infested balls of muscle, but I love every second of it. For me it's not all about getting one, but the experience.

Right on, Mr. Adams, right on.

I am headed off with a friend of mine to go hit up another area of public land to do some archery hog hunting and scouting for the fall deer season. We might even try to call up a coyote or two, but we are in for a good hike and some beautiful scenery. 

This hunt is about many things. We have both been practicing quite often and are ready to send some arrows flying at things other than foam targets. We both want to backpack in to a hunting spot and do some serious scouting. It's about us getting out of the city and testing our meddle and putting our will power to the test. All of this makes for an exciting day trip to the wilderness.

I hope you all have a great weekend and if you are heading to the woods, good luck, be safe and let the ammo fly! In my case it'll be 350 grains of sharpened steel... yes, you guessed it... on a meat missile. That one's for all of you who needed a good laugh. Cheers!


  1. Enjoy and be safe, Al! Let us know how it goes!

  2. LOL! You just made my morning with that one Al!

    Best of luck to you on your trip out and have fun!
