Success!

We took off in a Pilatus PC-12/45.


And we hunted in the southern part of the Texas Panhandle.

We saw some weather, but got little.
We hiked through some country.
What you can only get a hint of is that there are some steep canyons all through that area.
And Dad killed a good-sized hog (~200 to 225 lbs), finally blooding the new .45-70 Guide Gun that I'd given him for his 60th birthday,  a decade ago.
I have pork on ice to tend to. A good time, with good camaraderie.

Amazing@ I hunt with my dad, too, but you can hear the trucks on the road in three directions and you can walk across the land where we have permission in about 20 minutes, corner to corner.

I've been interested in the Pilatus for many years.

Congrats to Johnny.

What a great day! How did you get the pork home over all that countryside - and did I see your Pa wearing British DPM Camo?

@ Jumblerant: Judicious use of a Honda 4-wheeler and a lot of rope, to tie her on the back rack (she hung over both sides quite a ways.). Dad was wearing a Brit smock. That's a good piece of kit.
