Flew down to Texas to do a quick 3 day hunt by Turkey, Texas, home of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys

Reasonable priced hunt. Pm me if interested. He has a few more openings

Most of the hunting was in stands on the edge of large fields surrounded by thick areas and /or canyons

Great pics, and nice work on the vermin! Glad you had a good time in our great State.

A Salt that was either a natural content or poured on stumps and dissolved into the dirt.

B Some (?) mineral that was naturally in that area.

Beautiful photos and congrats on the hunt. I have only visited that area never hunted there. But it is surprising how you have that miles and miles of (flat) Texas and then it opens up to really beautiful scenery.

Very nice. Is that an entry or exit wound on the pig?

Bob Wills once rode a horse 50 miles to hear Bessie Smith perform.
