I sat one night and they came in about 50 yards above the feeder and then down. I lost light and fired a shot, might have hit one but they ran off. I now see only 3 of them on the game cam. Anyway I went back a week later and setup higher up to get them when they came in. As soon as I get under my cedar tree 2 different hogs come in, back down at the feeder. I try to sneak back down where I can get a shot. The ground was flooded the sun was in my eyes every shot was blocked by a tree branch. I ended up with a weak shot and missed. When I got the game cam pics I see that they came in around 4:08 when I was setting up, left and came back around 5:11. Good looking hogs. I'll get them....You can watch the time line, the feeder also went off.

    A nice pair of sturdy fireplugs there. Time for Death to pay 'em a visit.

    Solid recon...frustrating to be right there and not get a shot.

    Have you considered making a ground blind?

    I sit under cedar trees on the ground, cut some branches and use my dove stool. Here's a pic from the one next to the blind.
