We got access to the new lease recently and this weekend was the first time we got to really get out there to enjoy it.
We couldn't have asked for better weather.
Spending the weekend with my boys hunting and fishing made me the happiest man on earth.
It just doesn't get any better as far as I am concerned.
We are on a place just south of Seguin, TX.
It's got everything we could ask for.

Friday evening some guys got a BIG pig, the scale maxed out at 300lbs and it was bottomed out hard!
They used dogs and knives to get it... that''s ballsy in the middle of the night with a big old boar as far as I am concerned...

Saturday we did some fishing at one of the tanks and my son David caught 4 small bass and was on top of the world!

Sat evening as we were easing into a blind to get setup to hunt I spotted some hogs under one of the feeders and stalked to within about 50 yards with the wind in my face.

Decided on a nice sized sow and aimed for the center of the neck
Down it went, kicked a few times and that was it.
Perfect dead center hit and severed the spine, 6.8 does the job

My first kill with the new 95g TTSX out of my WIlson Combat 6.8
Putting that glowing little green dot of the Trijicon on target is so easy!

In a target-rich environment such as that, I woulda's tried for a few.  I know they scatter, but suppressors really confound the little guys.


Glad you had fun, looks like lots of piggies to choose from.  See any deer?

Even the cabin looks inspiring. Sounds like a great time. You're right, it doesn't get better than that, especially when you can share it with your kids.

Reaction time is a factor...

Outstanding, Charles!  Sounds like you've got a great place to escape to!

Money can't buy happiness... but it's much more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than on a bicycle.

I don't shoot innocent animals, just the one's who look guilty.
