Hi All, Not new to hog hunting, but new here, also new to night hunting as my God Grandfather Allen Wotten has passed on, I have hunted with this man from a teen, I'm 58 now, in fact well kept secret is that Allen and a buddy released pure Eur. Boars into the Santee River System ( South Carolina)in late 1950'3, all are now hybrids of course, love the split hairs on the back though.Regardless, Allen was a bay dog man, many hunts with this fine gentleman. He died in a ATV accident last July In SC, Hog hunting. He was in his late 70's, man wanted to die in the swamp and had been recently diagnosed with Prostate Ca, metastatic. Not one hog was ever wasted, over 2000 African Americans, ( not sure how to address in public Forum), were at his Funeral, My dad is a retired Presbyterian Minister was also present and word had it Allen feed most of the poor county's in the lower country of SC. He will be most missed, hunted with him the week or so before, see pictures of some fine SC pork chops. The English Setter Is Bella Jean, she does not like the rain while fishing, best Pheasant dog I ever had, not including Maggie Lou who died at 17, Bella Replaced her , before that was Nate, Then Dan, get the drift, also hunted quail, upland game all my life..
