Looking forward to the pig competition in February. This big sow group stayed in a kill zone for 1.5 hours last night. There are no new babies so they should be coming back in heat any week now; which will bring the really big boars with them. The stick of a bush they are circled around is right at 30" tall. These are some tall & thick sows.

Nice Blake!

The door looks like it's built for a hobbit through.
It’s a door made by a local company that sells doors and windows for blinds. Believe it is 24”x70”.

Ok it's wider than it appears on photos
Yeah all their doors are 24” wide. It may be shorter than 70” though. They make a 64” also but my dad is a little over 6’ so I’m betting he got the 70” one.

This is where the door is from. We used their windows in the last blind we built a few years ago but built our own windows this time and just got doors from them.

Took a couple of days off work and hunted at @thekidcatcher ranch. Had an awesome hunt and awesome weekend! @theislandboy, Jason, his dad and a former army sniper (awesome dude) came out to hunt.

I shot a doe on Friday morning at 240 yards through the neck. She was a hefty girl.

Then on Saturday afternoons hunt:
Someone else got this kill. It wasn't me pulling the trigger. Daddy javelina at 80 yards.

I shot this spike. The camera makes him look small but he was a big boy. Took 3 of us just to hang him up on the cleaning rack.

Then this momma & baby javelina came out to check on daddy and I got a two for one shot! So freaking pumped!

The former Army Sniper got two does on this trip. We got the ol' Bronco up and running after sitting for 6 years and drove it a mile and he heart shot this doe off the top of it (~200 yards). Pretty fucking awesome for the Broncos return back to life!

The ranch is really coming along! It has a well, a septic system and more bunks now! It's a pretty sweet setup and is only getting better! We ate so good on this trip!

Propane from the heater puts off a smell. We tried that last year and found it was a set back.

Heated Milwaukee jacket is not off the list; but this new cold weather gear is working great so far.
Prob the glow from it more then the smell
