Took my Son hog hunting
« on: October 27, 2020, 08:24:11 AM »
My little boy turned 40. :o :o :o Course he's 6'6" so not so little anymore.
For his birthday we went hog hunting. Neither of us had ever been. He carried a .270 that I bought for his b-day 10 years ago with which he shot his first deer with. I carried a Nikon to record the event.
He ended up getting 2 nice meat sized males.
We had a great time.
Life gets in the way so I cherish every minute I get to spend with him.
Love you Wild Bill!

I love to see a father and offspring sharing hunting or fishing. In this case fire up the smoker and enjoy even more bonding.

It's funny, My favorite pastime is riding. Don't bar hop much anymore mostly we take day trips or over nighters.

Anyway, as much as I'd love to ride with Billy I'm glad the bike bug never hit him. Here were we live the county has the densest population in Florida, traffic is brutal and everyday a bike goes down hard. Rarely does a week go by that we don't have multiple deaths in the area.
I'd be worried all the time if he rode.

I'm thinking for his 50th going shark fishing! :D

I have a lot of cherished memories of hunting with my dad. That looks like some good eating too!

My dad and I never did anything together except fight, each other.
It wasn't until his later years after he stopped drinking that we got talking with each other. It took my Sisters death to bring us together.

I cherish every time I get to be with Wild Bill, he's grown into being a great Son, Man and Father.

I've ridden MC's, now mostly a scooter, for nearly 60 years.  BTW, bar hopping and MC's don't mix well? ;D
None of our three adult sons ride MC's but one is an avid (freakishly so I'll a throw in as he often does hundred plus miles weekend rides on trails or highways) bicycle rider and one of the twins was a bicycle racer in college but has rugrats right now so bicycles are on hold. All ride for leisure though including me and my wife on mtn bikes.
What does the meat taste like in a young wild hog like the pics? Never been around it.  
I used to take my Vespa to FL in the winter to ride but stopped as the roads are too flat and the traffic is often nasty. We now limit our riding to our bicycles down there, at least before covid, yuk.

He used to ride a bicycle ( high end) to work. Scared the crap out of me thinking of being on a pedal bike in this traffic. Think 6 lanes of traffic on a bicycle... At least a motorcycle has the HP to get out of the way sometimes.

No idea what the meat is going to be like. I'm sure someone here can answer that.

Both were males, one the biggest was a instant death the other he had to chase a bit. I'm sure that will effect the meat.

High end for my oldest means a bicycle that cost more than my Vespa 300 GTS :D
He lives in TX alone and goes on weekend rides. He'll tell his KY Momma and she follows him on SPOT. She frets over the times SPOT leaves her hanging then later it'll kick back in. 
Sure beats the crap out of watching TV to see what happened to who in Iraq though...
I went back to college at age 30 and rode a bicycle to class daily. Curvy two lane with a bookbag on my shoulder, no MC for a couple of years back then.
 Traffic doesn't respect bicycles what-so-ever!

The noise and recoil from that .270 must be quite challenging. I have a Sound Moderator fitted to mine. It tames the recoil and makes quite a difference to the decibels.
Are you allowed moderators in the USA?
In GB they are treated as a separate item on your Firearms Certificate, but  
if you site health and safety (noise damage) on your application it is quite easy to get permission.
Nice pair of Hogs!
Take care.

Are you talking silencers?

I'm ok with the noise as long as I know he's going to shoot. Second hog was a surprise. Sitting right next to him it was a big surprise.
