We had three important things we had to do after dark... like eat, drink and be merry.

Tom,

Sent you padded envelope today with a few extras tucked inside.

Terry,

Yeah, I was in the Cypress, Oak swamp near the Jon boat stand. On the west side of the main creek that comes under the road that leads to the turkeyfoot split.

The food, drink and hunting stories (all of which were true [Roll Eyes] ) after dark were way too good to miss. So, there was no night hunting going on.
"Everything but a dead hog" for the Hog Wild Tribe -- this time. There will be a full-house "Revenge on the Hogs" hunt next year.

Sorry I missed the photo op, guys. That arrow is, I'm sure, the first of many that we will sign and present to our great host, Andrew.
Joe

Thank all of you for your posts and responses. The group last weekend was my first full house and I was very nervous about everything going well. You all were great, patient, and always helpful.
To cut to the chase about the hogs: very few hogs were seen by the group. I believe, by my best count, around twenty. Hog signs were plentiful but signs don't photograph well nor do they tast very good. I'd like to think that it was the 80*+ weather and the record acorn crop. Nonetheless, we all had a great time. Maybe next year........
Again, thank you for your kind words but especially for the new friendships. Please, let's stay in touch.
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.
All the best,
Andrew

Sorry all I got tied up with work and family this week. Just now getting back to this.

Saturday was the day for me... The AM hunt found me getting to within 30 yards of a feeding doe in the hardwoods across from the old trailer before getting picked off. Then hearing 2 boars fighting in the pines. I managed to get to the big bend in that road and discover a good sized pig in a wallow there. But he either spotted me or decided he had something better to do cause he left...

But I can't believe no one posted any pics of the OYSTER roast!!! I mean come on guys!!! Andrew and Doug took CARE OF US!!! Man what a roast. Some good food and a great time!

As soon as I got in and had a shower I promptly sat down in front of the fire with a good cigar.

And a glass of whiskey.

Andrew's cousin Doug (who it turned out has run with most my buddies so we had a big time talking fishing and hunting and development down there) cooked the best oysters... I mean these were big juicy wonderful oysters! Fit for a cold fall evening and a group of friends!
 -

A true pope and young oyster...

Guys- I know a lot of you are from northof Atlanta and are suspect... but if you want to see why we love it so much down here. Come and visit Andrew. Someone said he's a true Southern Gentleman. He is. He's steeped in the land and water and history of the area. He's as much a part of Estill as the river. And you will not regret spending time in his company.

James is, of course, absolutely right. Andrew is an especially great host, and a true example of why the term Southern Gentleman is part of the American lexicon. I do love the photo of the cotton field -- what a great slice of the True South.

I must also mention Andrew's incredible chili. Once I tasted it I knew that Estill, SC is a bit of heaven itself -- or at least in the same zip code. I have never had anything better in my life. I would make the trip just for the chili, but there is so much more there to enjoy.

Andrew's place is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and I have been in some beautiful locations from the beaches of Southern California, to the Great North Woods, to the Rocky Mountains, and the autumn woods of New England --- and the haunting pine woods and cyprus swamps of SC are something special.

I know I will go back to Andrew's place as often as my budget allows.

So you're why I got only one bowl, huh Joe? [Wink]

That stuff was GONE in no time!

True words James and Joe. Andrew's place is tops. The only thing better is the company and food.
