Buck and Hog

Anything can happen in the deer woods, but there’s no way to know when your day is going to go from normal to extraordinary. That’s the case with the hunt we are showcasing here today from YouTuber Norton Outdoors. Joey Norton is hunting the Georgia rifle season in mid-December when he’s presented with a prime opportunity at a large feral hog sow. Adding a little bacon to the table and helping control the hog population is always good, too, so he took the shot.

At first, it appears this hunt is going to end right there, as he’s already shut off all his camera gear and is getting up to leave for the morning when a shooter 8-point makes a sudden appearance. Watch as he scrambles to get this shot off.

Is there anything better than filling the freezer with venison and bacon in the same hunt? Perhaps the only thing that would’ve made this any better is if somehow both animals dropped right next to each other. We’re envisioning bacon-wrapped backstraps for dinner!

What’s also interesting is this particular hunt is the way the young buck comes right in while that feral hog is on the ground. He clearly sees and smells the dead animal, but somehow isn’t all that alarmed by it, which proves that life and death are natural events in the woods, and a dead animal doesn’t necessarily mean the hunt is over. It never hurts to sit for a while after dropping a deer or a hog, as you never know what might come walking down the trail next. Great shot on that buck, Joey!
