I was wondering about the grapes too. Never saw grapes this late in the year. Although I have seen muscadines refuse to fall before.

It was raining Sunday morning when I got up and went to breakfast, which happens to be my favorite meal of the day. The rain soon let up, so Thom and I went to hunt in the swamp. There were hog tracks and rooting activity that occurred overnight. We put some tree sling seats to use but didn't see any hogs before our pickup time. I harvested about a dozen river cane stalks to take home for making into arrows.
When we got back to camp, the other guys were shooting their bows and arrows at the hog, turkey and deer 3D targets. They also had already packed up their stuff from the bunk house.
Soon, it was time to go our separate ways. Before that happened, though, most of us gathered for a group pic with Andrew, to whom we presented the TradGang Hog Wild Hunt #1 commemorative arrow which all of the hunt participants signed. Hopefully, there will be many more of those Hog Wild Hunt arrows to come.

And the gang...
Thanks, everyone!

It was a great time with great hunting companions. And the hunting was very good -- as Terry said, "everything but a dead hog."

That just about says it all. We were all into fresh hog sign all weekend. It was a terrific hunt.

When did you guys take that photo of the arrow presentation? I must have still been out hunting hogs.

Joe,

I think you had just pulled out in your Jeep for the trip home.

That's the way hunting goes some times. All of you guys seemed to take the lack of hanging meat pretty well.

I'm curious.... Why didn't you guys try night hunting for those beasts? I've heard some great stories of guys doing that, and only got to try it once myself. It was kinda cool listening to all the movement of the night creatures... Kinda like telling spooky stories around a camp fire and hearing something rustling in the brush just outside the light....You can feel the hair standing up on the back of your neck one by one....
