    ...... nominally chasing deer but really too early in the season for a buck and too freaking hot for taking and keeping meat. So ended up just shooting a few hogs and taking in the world.

    Up high on the western side of the property looking almost due east.....

    ....there are about 13 hogs out in the middle of the green down on the flats. Our hut is down there to the north.

    Sitting in the shade looking for deer.......ended up snotting three hogs from this spot....

    ...... so with all the weather the grass/weeds etc are all running about waist to chest high on me (I am six one) so being summer and freaking hot it gets the heart rate up when you can't see where you are stepping. And yes we did have a number of issues with No Legs visitors there on the verandah :eek::eek::mad:

    I did find an interesting "trophy". This was in waist high grass and I knew it was a buck because the skull was sitting up. Had to carefully wade through the grass to get it and when I did I realised that it was a good sized buck that had gotten a big length of old No8 fencing wire wrapped around it's antlers, it also looks like one loop got below it's jaw/neck and was probably what killed it, poor bugger....

    And a few more pics of it I took back at the hut....
