First boar from my new hunting tower. Sat out last night to try for a boar from my new hunting tower. Went out at 22.00 with the intension of sitting out till 2.00 this morning. Now not being the young man i used to be i fall a sleep easily. So tanked up on red bull i sat there till 2.00 and was just going to unload and climb down when a young male boar showed up. I put the scope on him but thought he was to big to fit in my fridge and as the weather is still over 20 degrees during the day idid not take the shot.
So i waited about 10 mins to see if anything else would show up and suddenly the feeding area is filled with 2 sows and 8 young. They eat the maize and are very mobile, crunching maize, squealing and chasing each other around. So when i could get a shot i got this 26kg boar.
A couple of days and i can see the BBQ on the go.
Tip, Never make a hunting tower too comfortable as i was still nodding off even after tanking up on red bull
