I hunt this property that has this large petroleum well pad just about in the middle of it North-to-South. There is this really noisy natural gas compressor that runs constantly and makes a LOT of noise. From this pad and the little knoll right next to it, I can see about 80% of the property and actually hunt about 50%. The compressor is a mixed bag, however. The noise covers the sound of me walking back and forth across the well pad to scan different areas of the property, but it also keeps me from hearing hog noises. Thursday night, I had a sounder come in that I spotted during my regular circuit. I managed to shoot 7 or 8 (?) hogs, recover 5, collect most of them in my truck and was driving the carcasses to the bone yard when I spied another sounder at the other end of the property. They were apparently oblivious to all my activity or the sounds of me driving around, I think, large because of the constant droning of the compressor. I managed to shoot 6(?) here and recover 5. So not a bad night. I would like to have recovered more. I know two made it off the property. I figure there are 1 or 2 more piglets that are just plain hidden in the brush that even the buzzards had not found (yet).
