my brother in law and his dad finally closed on their land in the pottsboro area bordering corps land around lake texoma. he says its crawling with hogs and we're going out saturday night to hunt. he hasnt been baiting them or had a camera up or anything because they just closed on it about a week ago. basically we're kind of going on a blind hunt and hoping for the best...but since we're night hunting i'm hoping we'll have some luck. he has a big spot light but its not colored, i thought i read somewhere that you could just take red or green saran wrap and put it over your lens and that will keep them from getting spooked by the light so bad? i was going to mix together sweet feed or corn with peanut butter for the bait, any objections to that? i was hoping the strong odor of peanut butter would draw them in to us. there will be 4 guys, one to work the light and 3 to shoot (assuming there are at least 3 hogs).

if we get anything i'll be sure to post pics/story

I haven't tried Saran Wrap but we bought some of those colored translucent folder dividers from WalMart and cut them into a circle to cover up the lens. They usually come in a package of 5 or 6 all different colors. They're a thicker plastic so they won't melt.

Get in touch with me, I'm in Sherman and can come out there for a bit and spot for yall with the night vision.

red is the correct color and they used to make a snap on plastic red cover for QBeams. Rotten fruit for bait.

Trijicon Accupoint scopes and ND3 Green Lasers like a long range flashlight.

If at all possible, you should take Ponyboy up on his offer to "spot" for you guys.

He has a lot of practical experience and can get you guys "up to speed" quickly.

Good luck on your hunt, have fun, be safe.

Thanks guys. I really like helping out new hog hunters. It's fun and more people need to be out doing it because there's plenty to go around. Plus it's fun

This is me earlier this week helping a hog over a fence.

HaHa......!

I used the same technique when I worked as a bouncer while in college. We would sometimes take certain drunks and "show them the door" in just such a fashion.

Great pic, Ponyboy.

Stump breaking with a T-post is rough on the hog.
