    After some pictures, the chore of getting this porker back to the trucks was planned out. Josh a fairly sizable man, ran some harness straps through the hind legs and started the drag. As the rest of us carefully picked our way through the dark obstacle course by flashlight, Josh and Eric bulldozed their own path. All I could hear was the sound of breaking trees and brush as they proceeded on a more direct route.  You could probably drive a truck down the path they cleared out while dragging my beast up the side of the bluff.


    Supper was waiting for us by the time we got back to the lodge. Man, these guys eat good around here! A nice buck was taken earlier by one of the other lodge guests while Adam and I were waiting for the hogs to come out and play. Josh surprised me with an intact venison heart. There wasn’t much left of the one in my deer. I trimmed, cut it into steaks and put it to brine for cookin’ up tomorrow.

    Even though I didn’t get “the fever” as bad on this shoot, I was still pretty amp’d up. One shot drops with my little .30-30 two days in a row. Time for some shots of another kind and to relax a bit. After settling down some, I realized I had a few puncture wounds still containing cactus thorns in various locations on my body from retrievin’ the pig. Not sure why I didn’t feel them earlier. Maybe I’m just a little exhausted.
