At 5 a.m., Steve, Mike, Kass and I met the ranch owners for our first run on deer ranch in Dripping Springs. We got three pigs, and even though they were all pretty small, the guys had a blast. They plan on studying the trail cam pictures a little more carefully to pattern the hogs and we'll go back again.

As always, Trapper was the superstar, scooting under a fence to make the first strike. We got one small one on top of a hill, then they struck a big group with two big pigs and about 15 shoats. The biggest pig got away, but they got the medium sized one. They rolled out right away and soon we had three different bays going. Of course they all tried to honor one another and we ended up with just one piglet out of that bunch.

Unfortunately we didn't find any of the big boys, but I was really impressed with Sadie on this hunt. She was hustling the whole time, staying out in front, picking up a couple tracks and I wouldn't be surprised if she struck one of three we had going at the same time. She's normally a me-too dog, but she did very well today :-BD

I took a ton of pictures, but of course I had my exposure notched up for the early morning pics, then I forgot to set it back down once the sun came up. Oops. So most of the later ones are overexposed. Nothing a little Photoshop won't fix, but I figured I should at least get these up, especially since they are some action shots.

They had a great time on this hunt !!
Thanks to Trapper,Kassady learned how to scale a high fence on this hunt..
So now she is fairly certain she has completed here escape plan for if she is ever in jail.. :))
I have NO idea why she feels having this plan is important other than she likes to be prepared for
anything and everything :))

a dead pig is a good pig...no matter the size..
3 down a couple million more to goooooooooo

Looks like a fun hunt. They would have left me behind...there's no way I'd even attempt to climb a high fence!

Kass cracks me up :)) Even better was getting half way up this rocky hill and she goes, "Man, I shouldn't have packed my hunting shoes." Apparently she kept up with all the dogs and guys in a pair of sneakers she has had since 6th grade. That girl means business!

Climbing the high fence wasn't all that bad. But what I thought was hilarious is that on the way back over, I got half way and looked back down. There is Sadie, standing up with her paws stretched up the fence pole, looking up at me. It was like she was saying, "Hey, mom, my opposable thumbs aren't working today, come back and get me!" Apparently she forgot that the dogs scooted under the fence to get the pigs.

Yeah, I think most people are surprised Sadie works in spite of her pink collar ;)

Got some more pics edited. No more action shots, but with the beautiful setting and beautiful dogs, I couldn't resist.

He is 5 years old.

Lucifer is showing his age too, Mis. And he is only 4. Brutus still looks like a pup, go figure...

Looked like a good time congrates on the hogs. One plus to having a weekend with all small hogs no cut dogs.
As always great pics Julie. Is it just me or does Lusifer look alot like Pipper?
P.S. Hey Steve have you gotten one of the longer range antenas for your garmin? If so how is it working?
