Thanksgiving Hog Camp?

Drumstick, MS> What started as a great deer hunt unraveled quickly Thanksgiving morning as gunshots rang out across the famous Christmas Place. Spencer Howell was on the Sneaky Stand and Michael Howell was at the Point when hogs viciously swarmed them from all sides. Quick thinking and itchy trigger fingers ended the porcine coup attempt. Here is a pic of the three big wild hogs and all the boys, Austin, Spencer, Michael and Zack.
Where, Oh where, is Phillip in these troubled times?

Trust me, it got worse. Burney came in with his big trophy. He managed to blast a damn coyote. Thank goodness for the wild hogs or we would have had to eat coyote for Thanksgiving Lunch. No one was having luck with the deer at all.
Rain and warm temperatures had just about killed the chance of a big buck with an apple in it's mouth on the table for the Holiday.

Things changed as Austin headed to the Sneaky Stand for a chance at whatever would dare to come out of the high grass around the spot. He did not have to wait long and Austin finally got his first deer of the season with a well placed shot. I want to say how proud I am of all the boys for all huntng completely on their own this weekend.
Still it was a relaxed and fun weekend and everybody was up and at 'em on the last morning. We scattered across the property to hunt, and Paul and Michael headed behind the Mountain. As the first sunshine of the weekend entered the deep chasm they were hunting in, they spotted antlers moving through the heavy cane thicket.
Michael raised his .270 Short Mag and blasted the buck about like the Ole Miss Rebels walloped the Mississippi State Bulldogs to oblivion. (45-0) The nice buck hit the ground, averting disaster for the weekend. Congrats on a great 8-point Michael.

It's great seeing kids having a good time and some success at this great sport!

Sometimes, when you think things are bad and the whole worlds going to pot, you see some kid in camo drive by on a 4-wheeler and you know everythings gonna be alright.

Congratulations everyone!

Nice job to the successful hunters. I have to admit - I enjoy huntin' a coyote about as much as anything. Congrats to the young 'uns 'specially!
