Well a few last minute plans worked out and I managed to go to the Big Island for some hunting. Went on three trips one to some private land another to Mauna Kea and another to Puuanahulu. The hunts where fun but had a hard time getting the query in sight. On the first day we went out for some Rams but managed to only see a few herds of Ewes but had fun stalking the heard looking for the Ram. It was archery only so things were even more interesting. We hiked from 7 or so till about 7pm with a few breaks in between but the A'a is hard stuff to hike on and you better have some good boots. The next hunt was on some private property we managed to get close to a pig but we had to crest a small gravel hill to get to him and he huffed at us and was gone. But the resident Turkey was fun to mess with. The next hunt was a short hunt, managed to get close to a nice sow but she got away. I didn't have my release on my hand when I saw her. There where a few other pig I could hear but I could not see them anywhere in the thick brush. It was a great trip but maybe next time I will stick something for the freezer.
