Hogs in Sumner County?
While deer hunting Saturday I saw two brown objects moving across the bean field I was hunting. I was hunting from the ground and my view was obstructed by tall grass. I was trying not to move much since there were two deer 50 yards directly in front of me. Initially I thought I was looking at some toms strutting across the field, but decided I was looking at smooth furry backs, not turkeys. In hind sight I should have jumped out of position and fired on them if they were hogs. The bean field had quite a bit of damage that I think would correspond with feral hogs. We'll hunt that field again and bust any hogs we see. They will be tasty after 15 or 16 hours on the smoker.
No, I didn't shoot a deer. We saw two yearlings a 4-point and a 5-point. A friend did shoot a nice 10-point that was leading an equally nice buck a few miles away. We've seen some nice deer in Butler, Sumner and Cowley county.
