Nothing but dogs and cats so far. Iím trying to arrange a pig hunt in the near future (Iím not that fond of deer), so there may be Porky Pics coming soon.

Around here hunting takes way too much money for the casual hunter. You either have to have a lease, or drive forever getting to public hunting lands. And now the public hunting areas are restricted to bow and shotgun because of all the people moving in. I met the sheriffís deputy who is over animal control for the adjoining county, and he swore he could get us on private land and the property owners might even pay me to remove some pigs. Well, that was a week ago, and I ainít heard nuthin yet.

Yup, I took this saturday/sunday off for opening day (gun-deer). I went twice during archery seen a couple does at 100 plus yards. I would love to go pig hunting but we don't have them up here. Really gonna try for coyotes this winter, told the wife to tell santa about a foxpro caller I been eyeballing. This brings up a topic that I've got some funny looks and a-hole remarks from people. (How do save an animal then shoot one the next day?). I being the smart ass that I am usually just say "That I'm balanced" meaning not a PETA wackjob or a future axe murderer. Anyone else get this or is it just being up north were people have a clue? And yes-lets see some pics!

I know a vegan veterinarian that said the same thing to me in regards to eating animals. (You know, how can you treat animals and eat animals?) I told her that I don't treat the type of patients I eat. (I don't eat wildlife and I don't eat dogs, cats, ferrets, hamsters, etc.)

I don’t think I would have any problem treating and then eating a bovine.

I had never given any thought to hunting pigs until I read how much damage they do. Then I read that there is no “season” for pig in Texas. Then I read that feral pig cooks up better that pen raised because it has less fat.

I have been deer hunting twice in my life and all I got was cold, so I traded my 30-30 for a guitar amp. Now that I want to go pig hunting, all I have is my .58 cal M1841 Mississippi rifle, and of course my high capacity Springfield 1911 for a backup.

That is absolutely true GTO. We're still eating off a pair of pigs my son and I got in June. When I cook up some of the sausage in my George Forman grill absolutely no fat at all drips out into the little grease catch tray. Some of the best tasting meat I've ever had.

I couldn't help but chuckle. I just sat down after cleaning my my George Forman grill when I read this.
