    My son went to my hunting land this afternoon and sat on my deer stand. He saw a few small deer and one small buck came thru after my feeder went off.
    Then finally a some hogs came thru and he shot a sow that was 150+ lbs.

    We had to drive all the way there and help him out cause he got hung up in some real thick thickets trying to get her out and it was getting dark on him quick and he had no light with him:eek:oooh: He was afraid to leave the hog to find his way out cause he was afraid he wouldn't be able to relocate the hog. We found him easily tho cause he was closer to the main trail on the other side than he thought he was.:smile2:

    Congrats. on the hog. Talking about leaving the hog and coming back to
    it in the thicket, we have the same problem in some of our thickets. Some
    places are so thick you need a compass to come thru them,your vision is
    in measured in feet. One thing I have started doing is putting a couple of
    glow sticks in my pack or in the leg pocket of my camo overalls if I'm
    hunting lite and not carrying a pack. When I track down game after a shot
    I put a glow stick in a tree or bush close to the down game, put it as high
    as possible. You can then leave and go get the 4- wheeler. When you come
    back that little glow stick look like a beacon.
