looks like fun Manny, nice pig, maybe time to strap on a couple Gopro's or something similar to record the hunts, they make a head strap mount that's not too awkward and fairly easy to use.

Great hunt, gotta love .50 :D It would be nice to see some hunting videos from you. There should be plenty of rail on that sniper for a camera like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/HD-Rail-Mounted-Gun-Camera-Fits-Any-Pistol-Rifle-W-Picatinny-Records-Video-Sound-/292915544095?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c1#viTabs_0

 ;) ;D Wish I was there right now at 7am this morning 6* F wind at 25mph wind chill -17F bright sunshine and no warmth to be found outside so when I leave the house this morning to run to the local Lowe's it will be after the remote start allows the chariot to warm up first.

That's a wonderful story, Manny- and 25+ pounds of meat is a great way to wrap up a hunt.  As nice as the hunt is, just being able to get away out and about and be one with nature is a soul-cleansing experience.  I appreciate you sharing the experience as a whole, not just the hunt itself.

I would really need to have a camera going at all times ( things happen fast and planning to turn the camera on when needed would be a problem )
then come back and do a bunch of editing, cutting out the boooooooring parts :)
