After having to sit out last season, this guy steps out at 30 yards at 7:15 and causually walks away from me. I'm thinking he will stop at the feeder (150 yards) but no, he keeps going. At 170 I yell HEY. He stops and turns his head. had to do a quarting shot. Hit him just above the left shoulder in front of the left back strap and exited at the base of the right neck. The .243 brings another one home.

I hunt on a cattle ranch in northern Polk county. I run the web site for the ranch (huntinginflorida.com)

Is that the same one that Tampa Bay Sporting offers bird hunting through as well?

No. We only do dove hunts, spring turkey, deer and hog. The dove and hog have been rare this year but we have a boatload of turkeys.

Dam fine buck you’ve got there. I would be proud for him to ride in the back of my truck.

Not going to stop looking for the pig. Need to do her before she litters.
