Well, I got a last minute invite to go to the island again. I had to change my schedule around and then load the gear. This time I was going to be bringing my bow. It had literally been 2 years since I had shot it. So out to the shooting range for some "tune ups." Now I have been shooting my whole like (since 14) with a bow, and thus, its pretty natural to me, but its always good to practice. WOW I forgot how good that bow shoots. Its a PSE Nova. One of those small single cams. After some fantastic shooting on targets, I head to my buddies. Today we would have to hunt/scout an area on the south side of the island (about 1 mile from where we hunted last time), due to the wind coming out the North West. On the way there, we get a call to check a piece of property that he has rights too, as pigs are tearing it up. We swing through, and sure enough, there are 3 pis in the rice fields. We set out after them. It was sloppy walking, but we managed to get to within 15 yards. He picked out one, I picked out another, and off the arrows went. Whap-Whap. Both pigs were down with in 5 yards. (These were small pigs, not photo worthy!) We took those back to his house, where I gutted them, and put them on ice. We then set off for the island. It was now 12 noon. We had wasted about 2.5 hours, running here and there, and on the stalk. To make a long story short, on the island we never did see another pig, but it was hot by the time we got to where we were going. The island is really overgrown on the end we came in on, and it wasnt until he hit the interior that it became huntable at all. We hunted all the way across the island, and really got a good idea of what they are doing. The place we came upon last time (where they had rooted up ontop of our footprints) was destroyed this time. It was really fresh, probably an hour or so old. We are planning on going again later this week. I need to let the back/legs rest, as that is some hard terrain to walk through. On the way out, there was a boat full of guys and dogs, that had captured a 300-400 pound red and black pig. WOW that was a monster. (not worth shooting in my opinion). Anywho, I am having pig tonight.
