Tuesday’s Tracking: The Hog Blog

May 13th, 2008

Tuesday's TrackingToday’s Tuesday’s Tracking focuses on the Hog Blog. I have a blast reading the Hog Blog, because it is not like anything else out there. Phillip reveals his obvious passion in hunting, and especially in Hog Hunting. He shares different accounts of the hunt, of hunts he guides, and even expands out into other hunting endeavors, like turkey hunting.

Phillip has also taken up the challenge of fighting against the lead bans that are being pushed for in the state of California. I hope that he, and those who fight with him out there, are successful in their fight, because if such measures are passed in the state of California, it won’t be long until it finds its way to the rest of our states!

I really enjoy reading about different hunting experiences from all over the country (and the world). Most of us only get to hunt in our own little corner of the country. I have been privileged to hunt in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Vermont and Alabama. I’ve killed deer in all those states but Vermont. Every one of those states has a very different manner of hunting, except perhaps Pennsylvania and West Virginia, which are very similar. I hope to expand those hunting experiences sometime in the future. But, until that time, I enjoy learning from the experiences of others. I like reading the Hog Blog because it shows an experience that I may never get a chance to enjoy. If I ever end up moving out to the left coast, I might just have to visit California and hunt for some of those wild hogs. It sounds like a lot of fun!

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Phillip’s blog, make sure to jump over there and check it out.  He has been writing for a long time, and has a lot of good information on his blog.  I know I could spend a lot of time reading a lot of his material from the past.

  1. Phillip’s blog is great! It’s on my Google Reader for sure! I like how he brings out the important issues and he’s not afraid to take them head on – and he has a way of putting things into words that I can only wish I could say half as well.

  2. I’ve always liked The Hog Blog. Phillip is a terrific writer and he makes me think. He’s also inspired a couple of great OBS initiatives including Write About the Good.

  3. Phillip’s blog is awesome. I love his insight and the way he is so articulate and persuasive in his writings. A great blog to feature Kris.

  4. Wow. Thanks folks! You’re way too kind.

    I’m just glad to be part of a great community of hunting and outdoors bloggers like this one. It’s definitely a group effort, and we’re all getting the word out both to hunters and non-hunters alike (and sometimes anti-hunters), and we’re letting them know there’s more to us than bloodthirsty bubbas.

    And as far as an opportunity to try hog hunting, any time any of you are gonna be in CA, or if you’re interested, let me know and I’d be glad to help you get a hunt set up, either on your own, with me, or with a reliable outfitter.
