Mike and I just got back to the house. We ran the new ranch this morning with a couple of other guys and we were on pigs the whole time.

After a late start, we ended up with split bays right off the bat. Mikes group caught two. At the same time, my group had one bayed and when I cut Ollie loose she cut a 90 degree turn to catch her own pig. Brutus and one of the other guys dogs ended up catching the boar they were baying in the Llano River.

After that we regrouped, moved a ways, and dropped again. About 300 yards down the road, dogs head out again on a group of runners. Half of the dogs made a mile wide loop while the other half took out on a different pig. Mike and I got split again at this point and he ended up on the strait runner, eventually catching up and getting the pig.

Myself, two guys and their wife/girlfriends finally gave up trying to chase our pig and turned to head back to the road. When we got to our point of origin, Yuki, Trapper and one of the other guys dogs cut across the road, about 100 yards in front of us, hot on a big boars tail. He hit some Bee Brush and made his stand not 200 yards from where we started them. One of the guys with me had a 140lb Mastiff whom I though was a catch dog. It didn't take long, only one hard hit, to learn how wrong I was. We tried a couple of times to sneak in and catch the pig to no avail. about 20 minutes later we hear Mikes crew headed our way and start screaming for reinforcements. They cut a couple of bay dogs and Ollie out to us. Ollie made him squeal like a shoat.

In the end we had a couple of dogs cut, Trapper pretty bad, and 6 pigs in the trailer. A 30 pounder, 2 100 pounders, 2 a little over a hundred pounds and the 250lb boar who ended our hunt.

280 that is a hoss. Trying to leg with no catchdog? Sounds like yall have been on a roll sense it cooled off. 11 one week, 6 the next I have to say it is making me a little envious. Sounds like yall had a good time. Hope the dogs are well.

Good grief, that ranch is a goldmine!

Talked to the vet, Trap made it through surgery fine. He will be out for a good while.
Once again it was a close call.

We had sutured him up pretty damn good and the vet was impressed.
I can't even begin to tell you how handy it is having a vet familiar with hog dogs and their injuries.
Trapper will come home tomorrow.

The guys are on their way to pick Trapper up :) I can't wait for him to be home!
Not sure how big a pain in the butt he is going to be having to stay in and not hunt for several weeks... X_X
BUT at least he is going to have that option ;)

I meant to add to the guys hunting post, Banjo & Yuki were both in on that hog and neither got a scratch which is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay unusual since Yuki almost always gets cut (its the hound in him- he is a mixed Lacy rescue)

And not sure if Ollie girl got given enough props !! The pictures don't do that boar justice and she caught him on her own. He knocked her around a good bit but she stuck tight!
