    Hunting hogs with dogs

    Hello my friends!
    This is the first story I wrote after being appointed foreign correspondent of the WHH!
    I know I owe some stories of hunting for you, but I've been really busy with my work tasks.
    Well, last Saturday I was invited by some friends to accompany a hunt with dogs. It was a good opportunity to follow two packs of dogs trained to hunt hogs and to share that experience with you all.
    I left early, at 4:30 am, along with my friend Cassiano and his pack of 10 dogs, and we travel about 140 km to the property of a farmer who was having problems with the hogs. There we met with 6 other hunters and a pack of ten dogs. A lot of dogs was necessary, since we were hunting in an area of ​​approximately 500 hectares of maize. A part of the planting had already been taken but there were still many corn stalks.
    Overview of the region where there was the hunt



    Hunter´s meeting


    At 07:00 pm my friend Cassiano and I were already positioned and let out the dogs. Combine the other pack would be released from the other side of corn and other hunting would at strategic locations along the crop. I was using my HK semi-auto 12 gauge and my friend took a Smith Wesson revolver cal. 44 Magnum. Not yet 15 minutes had passed when the dogs found the first hogs.
    There were five hogs that ran in all directions. The dogs caught a large hog and my friend Cassian used his knife to take him down. I dropped another hog with my HK. The other hogs fled.

    In this photo my friend Cassiano appear to the right, and two other hunters to the left.


    On the other side of the plantation, the other hunters and their dogs also toppled two hogs.

    At 11:00 am, I dropped another hog that was hidden in a bush near the cornfield. My friend and their dogs also knocked another one!
    Afterwards, we eat a delicious barbecue and rest of the afternoon. Our final bill appears in this photo:


    Whole class of hunters slept on the farm and the next day very early we went to another farm to try to overthrow more hogs.
    The next day the weather was not great but it was better that way because we would not be tired at home.
    In this day we do not cut down many hogs but we still found eight hogs and dogs caught everyone off.
    This hog I put down with my HK 12 gauge


    This hog was overthrown by another hunter.


    And this was the result of the last day of hunting:


    Well friends, here ends this story and I hope to share more stories soon!

    For Those About to HOG we salute you!!!

    Nice looking dogs - they look like close to Rhodesian Ridgeback breed.

    Why do things just look so much prettier there? Even your dead hogs seem quite content. The dogs also seem quite satisfied.

    Life must be wonderful in Brazil!

    My dear cousin Double Naught Spy!
    Here in Brazil we have a saying like this: "the grass of our neighbor always looks greener!"
    Indeed we have here lush landscapes, amazing places and we are also getting good hunting.
    But we are always afraid of bad politicians and anti-hunting move in secret to harm us.
    What can we do here is to always fight for our rights and take advantage of our wildlife responsibly.
    But all our hunting friends here, including myself, think the USA is the paradise of the hunters! We love their freedom, rational and organized way to hunt, their stores dedicated to hunters and lovers of outdoor sports (Cabelas, BassProShops and others).

    In today's world, one thing is good to share the excitement with friends and good times of the hunt.
    I'm sure there will come a day when I can receive here in Brazil, including you my dear cousin, Mr. Ponyboy, Mr. Outlander, Mr. MVILL, Mr. Atakacorp and all the friends I made here at WHH, and make good hunting! I also hope to have the opportunity to visit the state of Texas and fraternize with the WHH hunters, and we can make good hunting there too!

    Thank you friends!

    Very cool hunt and pictures, hunter! Those hogs are HUGE!
    I like pigs because they are made out of bacon.
