I'm glad you're alive and ok other than being beat up by those hogs. I guess I would have to declare war on every hog I saw from now on. Glad you're alive to tell us about it.

Tammie, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure you can carry in Texas if you have a concealed carry permit while bowhunting. I know you can hog hunt 12 months a year with a pistol so unless its deer season there is no issue, and I think the concealed carry permit takes care of that.

It would be a good idea to check the regulations for whatever area you're hunting, just to be sure. Regs can vary within a state according to whose land your on. For instance, I can and do carry a pistol during bow season everywhere except for the National Refuge here, its a major no-no.

I remembered Mike P telling about a boar nailing him so I did a search here and found the story. Pretty good read.

If it isn't hectic, it isn't hunting!

Good find! For the newer guys who weren't around when Mike was, they owe it to themselves to dig up some of his writings here.
