Hunting & Cooking Wild Hog

Hunting & Cooking Wild Hog

If you’re having a problem getting enough bacon or pulled pork, you should really listen up! I’ve got a FUN solution for you – Wild Hog hunting! There are tons of ’em and there isn’t a dedicated season for them, unlike their other woodsy pals, the turkey & deer. You see, wild hogs are prolific and destructive.

During my vacation in early December, we actually tried three…

Hunting Dogs – An Outdoorsman’s Best Friend

Pirogue is a sweet & handsome chocolate Labrador Retriever – but he’s no ordinary pet. This dog has a job to do when he’s in a boat or on a slough; Pirogue is Sparky’s highly trained hunting dog. Oh, and that name? It’s the name of a Cajun flat-bottomed fishing boat that’s great for marshy, swampy bodies of water; very fitting. Why have a duck dog? Duck hunting is much more enjoyable when your best friend thoroughly enjoys jumping into a cold body…
