Those of you who are friends with me over on the book of Face have seen the news about my whereabouts this week. Suffice to say, I've managed to snag a most excellent hunting excursion whereupon I will be helping to rid the state of Mississippi of a few (hopefully) feral hogs. The good folks at Crimson Trace and Mossberg will be providing hardware, and we'll be hunting at night with infrared scopes courtesy of FLIR.
Night hog hunting. This is so cool I can barely sit still.
Anyways, stay tuned over on FB for pictures - hopefully of soon-to-be-bacon - and other events. Posting will be rather light, as I'm not certain what the connectivity is going to be like. Also, I think I mentioned night hunting, so things will be up in the air as far as when I'll be conscious, etc.
I'm both really excited and really nervous about this trip. While I've done some varminting in my time, this is the first night hunt I've been on. I've used night vision gear previously, so it's not my first rodeo there, but putting everything together is going to be challenging.
Fortunately, I like a good challenge. I figure I have a decent chance with a rifle or shotgun (they're not having us hunt with handguns. Yet.) and there may just be some ham coming home with me. Wish me luck, and hopefully there will be some fresh pulled-pork in my future.
Anyone got a good recipe for wild pig?
That is all.
