Hoggin’ with Phillip
Posted by John under: hunting .
Well, I hope none of you came down with a bad case of the gout while waiting for me to get off my tardy keester and back to work. Alas, the wait is over for now, so pipe down you friggin’ toothless banshees and enjoy this new video that features Phillip from the Hog Blog.
That’s right, Crazy Jim isn’t in this video. He was on vacation. OK…actually he got a little too deep into the sauce the night before the hunt, thanks to our generous host T. Michael Riddle and his Native Hunt’s special collection of fine liquors . We couldn’t wake him up to save our lives. And believe me, I tried. But waking the Crazy One from a deep slumber is about as easy as doing the the Fox Trot with a corpse. He wasn’t budging.
So Phillip and I headed out with T. Michael * on our mission: to harvest a hog that had been identified to have some undesirable genetic traits that Native Hunt didn’t want being passed down to their ranch’s otherwise pure-bred Eurasian wild boar population. Surprisingly, it didn’t take us long to find this hog and it quickly became a rather eventful hunt as you’ll see in the video.
On a parallel hunt, our other partner for the weekend and fellow blogger, Holly, headed out with a couple of Native Hunt’s professional guides to take down her first-ever large game animal. Unfortunately, the camera couldn’t be in two places at once, so you’ll have to read all about her hog hunting escapades with us on her blog, NorCal Cazadora. And from what the guides told me, she had quite a shot at over 200 yards. That’s a big boo-ya for Holly.
But even if Phillip and Holly’s hunts had not turned out as well as they did, it still would have been a pleasure to explore all that Native Hunt has to offer. T. Michael Riddle and his staff have really put together an exciting wildlife experience with populations of animals as diverse as the exotic liquors that Crazy Jim ingested. Thanks, Native Hunt. You complete me.
But enough of this typing. No one reads this shit anyways. So sit back, rub your gout-ridden feet and enjoy the hell out of this video because there’s no telling when you might see another one.
Respectfully yours, The Management
* Phillip and T. Michael were actually up just as late as Crazy Jim and they were still able to get up for the hunt. Thus the first recipient of our coveted Sally of the Week award goes to our very own Crazy Jim.
