Walked into Cottonwood late last night, about 3 miles. Napped till this morning then the three of us split up along the ridge line. It was cold,foggy and the wind was blowing about 20mph over the ridge. Saw about 9 does,2 coyotes, 1 bobcat but no horns. Only 26 people were drawn for this weekend and we saw maybe 6 of them. About 9 am I moved down to the ridge that sits above one of the ponds. Moved around a bit to get a good view of the surrounding area. 10am rolls around and I was relaxing under a tree when I hear a pig squeel. Jumped up to get a look at the creek bottom. As I'm looking down I notice a group of hogs coming down the slope across from me. I dropped to my knee, picked out a large hog and squeezed one off.BOOM..........WHACK !!! Pigs all scatter except for the one I pulled on. It was stone dead, not even a twitch. Rest of them ran back up the slope and over into the private land. Moved down and across to the pig. It was about a 225yd shot with my 270. Hit 2 inches behind the ear and exited out the lower neck. It was a boar about 200lbs., with 2" cutters. The drag out about killed us except F & G came by and drove us out the last mile. Meat should be ready in about a week. Pictures as soon as I get them back. Time for a cold one or two and some asprin............................Erich.
