Ready Set Hunt
Well, I think Spring is pretty much here to stay finally. Just this week it has stayed comfortably warm enough that I know the hogs at my place should be thinking about hitting the watering holes regularly.
So, I like this time of year when the rain slows down just a little and the weather gets a little warmer and the hogs are not able to get food and drink wherever they desire.
I filled the feeders at our place a couple of weeks ago and set up my .50 Beowulf with the new Rifle LiteTM from BowLite Archery Products, Makers of The BowLiteTM.
I chose GREEN because I like the fact that it is very easy to see through my scope and the red reticle in my Leupold XV-III looks juuuust right in it. Let me tell you, there’s no problem using the Rifle LiteTM at distances of 100+ yards. And the price is VERY agreeable with my budget.
I also set up a new Moultrie Game camera this season that uses the cellular uplink to upload pictures to Moultrie’s online Game Management System. I’m not a big fan of Moultrie Game Cameras and people that know me well, know this. The reason I chose this system was I wanted “a” system like this and I thought it was the lesser of all of the evils with a “reasonable” (relative term) price. Overall, I like the new game camera system.
Using the uploaded data, within a week and a half I was able to take this 245lb trophy boar with my .50 Beowulf and my new Rifle Lite.
70 yards just after dark….right behind the ear.. NO PROBLEM….
