Guess it depends on your perspective. I don't think jumping out of airplanes is dangerous, neither is riding a Harley in DC traffic. If you are used to something it just seems normal. Now being a single man on the dating scene....VERY dangerous...;-)

Rik,
that is one cool experience, I guess I have been lucky so far as the hogs we have gone after have had a way out other than through me. We did have an experience were my son missed his shot and mine grazed the pigs front leg. this pig cricled and came in twice before he made his exit.

Mike....I'm use to hog hunting, and its normal, and I respect them. Never worry about whitetails charging me.

Terry

I probably should respect them more. My closest encounter was at FT Stewart in 98. We would do 12 mile road marchs down the tank trails. At the turn around point we would place a junior NCO in a HMMWV with a radio. I was getting reports of a boar chasing the troops. Good intel!! I went after that raascal!! One evening 3 sows with piglets were feeding along the edge of the trail right at dark at the turn around point. Out of the palmettos about 100 yards out came a thin but old black boar with long cutters. He saw me right off on the elavated tank trail and started right for me growling and popping his teeth and shaking his head. I kept sneaking towards him with a snuffer tipped nitro stinger on the string(your recommend, if you remember) Well he kept coming and I kept coming....we got about 20 yards and I was hoping he would keep coming until I had a shot..at about 18yds I still only had head, and a lightbulb went on in his head. I swear his expression changed when he figured out I was not running and was about ready to give him a snuffer from my 77# Ferguson. He wheeled and made it the 100 yards faster than a spooked whitetail. I was REALLY dissapointed he did not try me out, I would have stuck him at point blank range. I guess he was used to the troops running when he postured. One thing life on the farm taught, when you act like your are in charge, the animals think you are in charge. Act afraid or run when challenged, the animal will know they are in charge.

I hear ya Mike....I've had my share of 'Mexican stand offs' as well.

I respect them more when its a big boar I've slipped up on in his sanctuary. I've been within 5-10 yards of a half dozen at least that were cussing me out, and I couldn't even see them, just the trees and bushes shaking.

Haven't had one break toward me yet, but I'm fully considering that they could at any moment.

It is a fun rush for sure....just be careful out there. I know another guy(non-hunter) that got treed in an apple orchard by a huge boar, and he got tired of waiting for it to leave and finally shot it with his pistol.

Back when I was younger and into the Ninja craze, I'd dress head to toe in ninja gear, get on all fours, grunt and crawl in amongst 'em with my $5 "Rambo" knife mom bought for me off TV. Never did connect but got OH so close. Dang they're quick!

Yep...if a human will walk on all fours, and 'graze' at an angle tacking like a sail boat he can get real close to a lot of animals.

I shot a boar last Friday and as I was crawling around following the blood trail I ran across these guys. Although I wouldn't classify hogs as dangerous game, had I picked one of these little guys up and made it squeal It would have probably made for a long night.

I was at Bob Wesley's this week and he showed me some video of a hog hunt. The hog charged him 3 times and ran into him twice (once injuring his leg) and you could tell by the reaction of the cameraman (he ran away twice) there was some tension in the air.

Fellow Northwest Bowhunter,

Oh Mannnnn! I have that same video. Bob sent it to me way, way back when I was publishing Instinctive Archer Magazine. A helluva hunt, eh?

That little video clip probably has a lot to do with why I am going to spend a full month in far northern Australia this summer, living in a small tent and hunting big, bruiser boars with heavy wood arrows.

I blame Bob. I would have been a normal, sane elk hunter totally content to limit myself to the Rocky Mountains if not for him sending me that video clip years ago. Been a big-boar addict ever since.

(Not to mention a Hill-bow fanatic)
