Last weekend I was up on the ranch and had a good stalk with my bow on a group of pigs early on Saturday. I had allready killed one that morning with the 06 so I was trying for a second strike of luck with the bow. I started to walk the pig beds that are on this steep hill with several creeks; wet and dry, that tie into the bottom of the canyon. I had the wind in my face coming down from the top of the hill. I'm walking on a pig trail side hilling it and I run across some green pig scat. I get closer and can hear the pigs doing their soft grunts. So now I'm just above them trying to go down hill without making alot of noise while I'm stepping on the loose rocks. As I'm just about to get a visual on them I hear a pig squeal. I'm thinking that some young ones are with this group just messing around with one another. Then the older pigs start to grunt louder in the tall grass and I know they will be gone soon so I take a few quick leaps to try and head off the group but they split in every direction but towards me. So I try to keep the wind in my face and side hill one of the trails the pigs seem to have used to escape. I'm thinking what has happened to make the pigs run? Maybe a yote or another big boar coming in and messing with some of the younger pigs and that's why they were grunting and running.
