My dad, youngest son, and I started out at first light with three dogs, one finished, one well started, and a dog that has been on 3 hogs but we had hi-hopes after last weekends hog.

Didn’t take long before we spotted 2 nice size hogs atop a mountain feeding. We drove over and were half way up when we jumped a sounder of hogs ranging from small to large, we released to dogs and my dad lead one in on leash for a ways before turning it loose. I drove to the top and ran into the original hogs we saw.


The young dog ended finding his fourth hog on his own.


And my son got some practice at legging his first hog before we released it.


Not the biggest hog but was certainly a good training experience. The older dogs chased a large hog, in the 300 pound class with good teeth showing but weren’t able to stop it. It was pretty steep where we were at. Saw some nice looking flowers and turkeys too.

Great job. Sorry you didn't get the big one, but a great day for your new dog and the boy.

Takes some cajones to wade in and leg a hog, even a small one... especially for a kid. Congrats to the youngster and to Dad as well for bringing him up right.
