Its been raining for the last 2 months it seems but I never realized that it could be a good thing in the hog hunting world. Decided to check a few seldom hunted locations that were on ridges . Even a hog dosen't want to stay in water all the time. Especialy when the water is below freezing. Not 15 minutes after entering the stand I caught sight of him just ambling down the ridge. Looking like he owned it. Appear to be a good size but There was no ground shrinkage in this one. The nuese river islands near Grantham have produced some nice pork but this old boy was king of these woods. 80 grn 223 from an AR 15 opened up a slot for a new king. 277 pounds and armed to the teeth-- literally.
