Hog hunting – is something a lot of people probably haven’t heard of because they don’t have a season, They are a nuisance so every time of the year is fair game to hunt them. But anything can be boring including hunting. But then again Boar (A type of Hog) are very dangerous with their tusks.
My first time hunting was disappointing to say the least, the day started as normal, by that I mean it started with me not knowing we were going hunting. At about 12:30 we get in the car with our guns, at this point I think we’re going to the shooting range.
At one point on the ride I hear my dad talk about buckshots and “We might not get anything” so at this point I ask if we are going hunting, and my dad says “Yes” along with my Uncle saying “We’re going to go out to Leaky to hunt hog”. After we get to some land that my dad’s family owns, we start walking around looking for Boar.
We looked for a few hours before the Adults gave up, at this point I started to get sad because we took a 3 hour drive for nothing. But then we walk out to an open field where my dad says “Well we may have not gotten anything, but we can still make this trip worth something.” This was the end of our hunting trip, but the beginning of our makeshift shooting range. But that’s a story for another time.
