Would Recommend: Most Certainly

Overall Impression: Very Good

I hunted with Tim Lockwood the end of March for wild pigs. The weather just prior to the hunt was unseasonably cold and wet-miserable. When I arrived the extreme weather departed which was a good thing, however, we were then hit with a BRIGHT full moon. The moon literally cast shadows at night! Apparently the majority of pigs had moved to lower elevations as a result of the previous stormy weather, and the ones remaining in the area were moving at night under the illumination of the full moon. These circumstances created poor conditions when it came to finding pigs in shoot-able light hence my *poor rating regarding quantity of pigs seen. There was plenty of deer though and it was not uncommon to see 20-30 each day! Despite the difficult conditions, Tim worked hard and there was clear evidence of much pig activity at night so I have no doubt abundant pigs live in the area. The first evening I even had the opportunity to harvest a fairly sizeable boar, however, due in part to the fading light; I was unable to accurately judge “teeth” so I decided to hold my fire. Hindsight being what it is, bad call-but that’s why it’s called hunting and not getting! In conclusion, perhaps the best recommendation I can give is despite the difficulties experienced on this hunt, this was a positive experience, and I do intend to return and give it another go with Tim.
