  1. Hog Hunting in TN?

    Coming out of Johnson City, Loshbough will be an easy trip. It's a fenced property (I think 500 acres or so) but the way it's laid out, it really doesn't feel fenced. I've had several good hunts there. Accommodations are nice, clean and well maintained. You'll have to take care of your own food but there's a kitchen and grills so it's not a big deal. There's a good processor and taxidermist nearby as well so it's easy to take home a cooler full of butchered and packaged pork. If you want a free range hunt then look at the auction hunt I posted from Alabama Hog Control. It's in Prattville so it's an eight hour drive for you, but it's fully free range and for about the same price you'll likely bring home a LOT more pork. You'll be less likely to bag trophy boar, but if you are after meat that's an economical way to fill the freezer. Plus hunting at night w/ thermal sights is an intense experience. Regardless, have fun, be safe and shoot straight.
  2. Hog Hunting in TN?

    Truth. A charge from a big ole 300 lb boar is not something you want to have to deal with. A lot of hog outfitters won't let people hunt that way due to the massively increased risk. If you do decide to use a spear or knife, make sure the outfit you are hunting with has some really good catch dogs.
  3. Hog Hunting in TN?

    I've hunted several times with Loshbough in Crossville. Very good outfit, excellent dogs and some really big boars back in those hollows. I can also recommend Alabama Hog Control if you want something a little more extreme. Night time hunting w/ thermals. We dropped 14 pigs out of a single sounder last year. It's an immense amount of fun. Which leads me to a shameless plug. The Music City SCI chapter is having an auction for hunts on March 15th, and there just so happens to be a nice hog hunt right here: http://www.icollector.com/1-day-Alabama-Night-time-Hog-Hunt-for-2-Hunters_i29121350

  7. 2017 Deer Season Thread

    Until this year, I haven't even seen a decent buck on my property. That just changed.
  8. Remington on life support?

    I've had similar problems w/ core-lokt. It's cheap and generally performs well, but in the six years I've been using it, I've had two dud rounds while hunting and a handful more at the range. Once I use up what I've got I'll probably start looking around for something to replace it.
  9. Update on my best friend Kasey

    I'm so sorry Doug.
  10. Where do you shop?

    Reminds me of an old joke. A police officer pulls over an old lady for speeding and asks if she has any firearms in the car. She says yes. I've got a .38 revolver on my hip, a 1911 in the glove box, a shotgun and an AR15 in the trunk.. and oh yes, a pearl handled .25 on my ankle. The cops eyes get really big and he asks her: "Ma'am what are you so scared of?" The old lady smiles sweetly and says "Not a damn thing, young man."
  11. Finally got a buck!

    Method of take: Ford F150
