Just wondering who all is going deer hunting this weekend. Looks like the weather will be cool and breezy. Taking my wife and three year old daughter (Betsi and Jade)with me for the weekend. I am going to set up my pop up for them to look at deer while I am hunting on the other side of the place.
Good luck to everyone and be safe out there. I will post a report when we get back.

Good luck Bret. This is my last year of school. Next year I get serious about the water and woods again.

I'll be on stand opening weekend looking for the 10 pt the trail cam picked up monday am. Hopefully he won't be nocturnal by this weekend and I will get a shot or else I will have to settle for popping another big piggy. I will have my 12 yr old daughter on stand with me and am looking forward to it!

Good luck to you guys but what is an Oryx?

Tj, Scimitar horned oryx is an African plains animal that was hunted to near extinction. From what I have read, there are more of them on ranches in the us than all of africa..

Snagged landed on it from one of his airplane jumps and stabbed it to death!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll once again try to find out the real story. I do remember that the weight was around 1200 pounds. I think it was killed last year.

I am assuming it was killed somewhere other than the continental US..
I have been up close and personal with some pigs that would go over 400lbs and I thought they were huge. 1200 lbs. man, he could eat you in less then 30 mins.

....Poor Gunsmoke...I think that this is the hog that he hand fed from the time he was a little piglet up to the day that snagged did him in.

I just found out from the guy that emailed me this picture, that this pig was killed last year in Texas. Zapata County. Between Laredo and Zapata. I killed a few that dress out over 500 pounds myself. It's common to see pigs over 500 pounds hanging in the locker plants in south Texas in the next month.
