Well I'm not ending the season like I wanted as the wife is working and that leaves me with all 3 kids. The 2 oldest is one thing to take but my 5 year old can't be quiet if ya glued his mouth closed. We are taking a family trip down to the blue river tomorrow and do some trout fishing.
Well that sounds pretty good! I need to go bait a hook myself... been so wrapped up in school and work, hunting has been the only thing I do in my spare time. Also gonna try to do some hog and predator hunting pretty quick too. Thinking about making a trip down to the refuge in Tishimingo, I have been down there and you can't go without seeing the pigs. The only problem is, the only allow bows, and non toxic shot in a shotgun, due to it being a national refuge. Haven't been able to find any non toxic slugs. Any opinions?
Sasakwa and I talked about this today, and wondered if slugs arent legal, even though they are from a shotgun, would some of the bigger shot that is non-toxic be capable of taking down a hog? At close range, yeah, but I don't hunt with non-toxic anything. All of my shot is toxic to everything! ;D (except for the couple of ducks I took this year with steel)
If you had some good buck shot in a 12 gauge at close range (bow range) yea, then it would probably be lethal to a hog. I am really interested in hogs and always will be due to my raising of show hogs in younger years. I know a lot about them, and besides deer hunting, hog hunting is a close #2 to deer hunting.
