Her first hog hunt

Texas – -(AmmoLand.com)- If you met me at the grocery store on my way home from work, you probably wouldn’t guess that I am an outdoorsy type of woman – let alone a woman who enjoys shooting guns.

I’m very comfortable dressed up in my high heels and tight jeans, but I also enjoy getting outdoors for fresh air and adventure in my hunting boots and camo. So when my husband asked if I’d be interested in joining him on a hog hunt in Texas, I was excited to go.

I’ve gone hunting with him a few times since I learned to shoot several years ago, and it’s been a fun activity to share. But I’d never been on a hog hunt before, and I have to admit that the thought of hunting wild hogs in the dark late at night made me a little uneasy.

    About 18 years ago I went out one morning, sun somewhat up, with a late-60s hog trapper in southeast Red River County, Texas. The day was foggy. The trapper checked five or so traps, but all were empty. He preferred to trap small hogs, which are more tender for cooking. It was a good experience and made a good newspaper story. There are wild hogs all over Texas. The 3 million figure might be low.

    “Then I remembered what someone had once taught me. Comfort zones are like rubber bands. If we don’t pull them, they don’t expand. I thought of old rubber bands I’d found over the years, usually wrapped around decks of cards that had been tucked away in a drawer for a very long time and often so dried up that they just crumbled. That’s not how I want my life to be!”

    How very well put. I remember years back, a former co-workers was constantly bugging me to take him camping because he had never done it before. So after some time, I went ahead and took him for a weekend trip. He was a total greenhorn and expected questions and concerns.

    When it became dark, he was so unaccustomed to what the sky was without city lights. It happened to be a ‘dark of the moon’ and he was pretty shook up. Add to the sounds of yipping coyotes (Thats a coyote ? You have them here ?) and even a lizard running through the leaves sounds bigger than what it is. Imagination is not just for kids ! He insisted in sleeping inside the truck.

    Let your Life be an adventure – its the hard times that make cool stories.

    What a letdown! Reminds me of the time I spent a day fishing and didn’t catch anything.

      Worst day fishing is still better than the best day working. Unless of course you hit the lottery on your way home from work,

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
