I would say good luck but by the looks of the pictures you won't be needing any luck.. Go fling some arrows and get some pork kabobs!

Luck is always needed. hogs are really smart. they might be just about blind but they can smell & hear way better that and deer. i have say in a spot & waited in an area where I was getting pics every day at the same time and never saw them. scent controll is the number one thing with these guys & LOTS of luck

the only wierd thing is I cant figure out what they are rooting for in the sand??? I have been watching these guys for about 2 weeks moving my camera from side to side in different angles trying to see them rooting but I have no clue what they are finding in the sand. maybe grubs or worms but I'm at a total loss of why they like this spot??? anyone got any ideas on what they are trying to find???

I have pics of them rolling around in the sand too. covering them selves in it. kicking it up with their back legs & struttin at each other. the males will face off and all the hair on their body stands strait up. looks crazy like their gonna fight.

Just cuz you get them on camera dosen'tmeasn their dead. I hunted on sat morning and could here hogs moving around my blind but they never crossed. they did a complete circle around me trying to wind me and im guessing they did cuz I never saw one..... But I did see a big bobcat! 25 pounds at least. too bad I didn't have time to put an arrow in it. It walkes across the clearing looked strait at me and walked out. the hole encounter lasted about 10 sec. I would love to fill one of my bobcat tags before its too late. O well there is always next time. thats why they call it hunting and not killing right.
