Interview With The Hog Blog

As a pure and faithful public servant on reporting only the truth in the news, I recently conducted an interview with Phillip at The Hog Blog. The first thing he wanted to know is if I had any rhinocerous bullets. I said no, I've never even seen a rhinocerous at the Christmas Place. He looked at me blankly and said he was bringing a .270WSM and needed bullets. Supposedly this is a 270 Winchester short Magnum which should at least annoy the hogs as he blasts at them. Then I made the mistake of asking him what did he know about cooking pork. OMG! He said he knew how to cook bacon, make bacon sandwiches, pork sandwiches, pork loin, pork shoulder, pulled pork, BBQ ribs, short ribs, pig jowls and black eye peas, pork chops, hog brains, pickled pig feet, roast hog, fried hog, pork pie, pork ala-mode, grilled pork, hog-eye soup, blah, blah, blah, I told him I was having a heart attack and would see him at camp and hung up. Don't ask him about cooking pork this weekend!

Super Hog Bullets

So, I go into Wal-Mart to buy some bullets for the hog hunt and they have a new brand on the shelves. HOWITZERS- the thermonuclear device for the serious Hog hunter! I bought two boxes.

Prehistoric Trouble

Looking through the secret journal that we discovered at the famous Christmas Place, I found some interesting sketches and information about giant hogs that the secret organization that owned the property had put in the book. According to the old Journal, the very last of the ICE AGE giant hogs were discovered in Borneo and 17 were shipped to Mississippi and the Christmas Place. The hogs stood 6 feet at the shoulder and were about 10 feet long. They were released here for the sportsmen to enjoy along with all the other mysterious creatures they rounded up at the turn of the century.

Hog Camp is the weekend of March 1.

Ground Deer Day

February 2nd is Ground Deer day in the Mississippi delta and especially at the famous Christmas Place. Dad was up on Rattlers' Knob with Thunderhoof early that morning with a bucket of feed for those loathsome big bucks as they emerged from their holes now that deer season is over. You know I am just about tired of him coddling and babying those varmints like they were his Evil sons. Yes both Paul and Trent. So another deer season has passed and Thunderhoof is still wandering around taking it easy without a care in the world. Soon it will be time to look for sheds and if I find one of Thunderhoofs this year I am going to carve a motorcycle out of it. See you soon for the hog hunt!
