Hog hunting in FL

Today I was able to venture into a beautiful section of wild Florida. I sat completely still in a tree stand, among thirty foot pines, a small pond and the Nassau river to my back. Remaining silent as nature sang it’s song all around me. Insects chirping, bullfrogs croaking, blue jays squawking. The crows all seemed to have a convention to go to. A multitude flying the same direction, cawing the whole way. My reason for being in the woods was predatory. Feral hogs were my prey. (Find out more about them here: https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/uw322) I’ve avoided factory farmed meat for a little over a month. While I’ve not been completely strict with it, I’ve cut my meat consumption down by a solid 75% or so. By doing this I’ve created a stronger desire than ever to hunt and harvest my own meat. While I didn’t see any hogs, I enjoyed myself immensely. Spending time in the great outdoors is always such a pleasure, and being in touch with where your meat comes from should be a part of every carnivore’s life. I’ve got a few other hog hunts lined up, can’t wait to put meat back in my diet. – Brett
