Eldon is a senior guide of many years of experience in the Western USA, Alaska and Mexico. I hunted with him for wild boar in June 2006. He's quite entertaining to hunt with from the standpoint of stories, and he's very well fit for his age. Hunting was spot and stalk with plenty of hiking. As commented by the previous poster, there wasn't much game to be seen. We hunted all morning and all afternoon and saw not one boar until the last minutes of daylight. We did see numerous deer, but we weren't hunting deer, nor was it deer season. The one boar we spotted came to the exact area that Eldon thought he would, and it appeared the pigs holed up all day on non-huntable property, and ventured onto Eldon's leases toward evening. I took that boar after a 150 yard sprint to get into position and a 230 yard shot sitting at last light, and it was about 180 lbs live weight. An exciting and successful end to the hunt, but again, we saw very little sign and no other pigs all day. Again, it's fair chase hunting, not shooting pigs in a barrel, so another day might be different. It was a fun hunt.
