    Is it possible to get a hunting subforum added to the basement?

    How in the heck do you go from this...

    ...to, I can't find my pig?

    Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, but that is the picture I sent to a buddy and my daughter, after it was downed. Low light and zoomed in.

    About two minutes later, the pig rolls over. No biggie. I've seen them do that. Then, I see it pushing across the ground, using only it's hind legs. It goes about 15ft, behind some volunteer gums that haven't been bush hogged yet. No big deal. I've seen them do that, too.

    I'm waiting it out for a few minutes, you know, to let it expire. I walk to the truck, drive back to load it, and it's not there!

    After searching by myself, then with my dad, no pig.

    What the heck just happened?

    Tell me about it!

    This was a very nice pig and was supposed to be riding on the back of the truck to a local processor.

    Bigger boolit? :D

    Nobody has a dog that will track him down?

    Edited to say: at nearly 24 hours later, the dog won't be much help at this point.

    I had a (really really) nice buck go down on the edge of a field. I watched him for 5 mins and he never moved. I got had to walk through a swag and when I got to the top he was gone. Backed out waited 3 hours, went back and had blood but couldn't find the deer even brought in a tracking dog. Old man told me after that; "bullets is cheapest part of hunting".

    No. I think in the amount of time I waited for it to expire. I'm thinking it may have gotten back on all fours and slinked away.

    The search area was very small, then it opens up in pines. Not to say it's not there, somewhere. We just didn't find it.

    My wife did offer to bring her four month old puppy, to help in the search. Lol.

    If it’s dead the buzzards will find it for you.

    Went looking today. No buzzards. No blow flies. No stench.

    If it wasn't a life ending shot, I hope it's not one that will cause it to suffer. I know they are nuisance animals, but my goal wasn't to inflict days or weeks of suffering until it succumbs.
