My Facebook friend, Kareen Beinhauer from the great state of Texas, is a hog killing machine! Here is her story behind hog #149 and 13th for the year.
I started out to the storage feeder after 9:00 p.m. I was going to set up my one chair blind and come back for my rifle, flashlight, and phone since it was still daylight. As I rounded the corner and could see the storage feeders I saw a lone hog underneath the storage feeder eating. I could not believe it. I left my blind and went back to the house to get all of my stuff plus binoculars just to be sure it was not a deer but I was pretty sure it was a hog. It was! I sat down in my blind and took two shots and thought he would probably run off and this was probably a 75-yard shot. I saw him still standing off to the right so I took another shot and I thought I saw him go down and when I went and looked, there he was! Not a bad sized boar and #149 and 13th for the year Woo Hoo! I am so happy!
My congratulations to Kareen in our wild and wonderful Texas outdoors! Way to go girl and I'm so proud of you!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
