Big spotted boar

    We got a call from a landowner that had hogs tearing his up so we decided to make a quick run. We only took two curs (Gizmo and Chief) and one catch dog (BA). We checked where the hogs had been rooting and made a couple turnouts, then moved on to check water holes. The curs struck on the second pond we turned them out on and we had a good bay going within a few minutes. We walked in close to it and found Chief and Gizmo baying a nice boar in a creek. We sent BA in to catch but the hog broke just as he got close so they had to run him down again. The curs got him stopped in a mudhole just a little way down the creek and BA must have been right with them because we only heard about two barks then caught hog.
    I was pretty hot and tired by the time we got him dragged out of the mudhole and up to where we could work on him.

    Picture of me and the boar. We guessed him at a little over two hundred pounds and had tusks about two inches long.

    It is a huge rush. Especially when it's a dog you've raised from a pup finding it or catching it or whatever.

    A buddy of mine needed a hog to smoke for a BBQ to celebrate his daughter's high school graduation.
    We were a couple hundred yards downhill from anywhere you could get with a vehicle so we quartered him up and packed out the quarters and backstraps in a game bag.
    We let the meat rest in a cooler for a few days then butchered it into some great big roasts for the smoker. The leftovers we ground up with some bacon for burgers. Dogs got the scraps and bones.

    Oh, yes. Quiet kennels for a night. Usually the dog that found it and the dog that caught it get the best stuff and then we part the rest of it out for the other dogs. The old duffers that are missing teeth get the meat scraps from butchering.

    I would love to get into hog hunting but not a lot of people around here do it and i wouldn't want to just head out and do it, i would deff want a mentor and someone to teach me.

    That's really the best way to go. There is so much that can and does happen out in the woods it's good to have someone walk you through it. You don't really even know what kind of dogs you want until you hunt with a few different people and see how they operate.
