JBOhio’s Texas Safari Extravaganza!
I’ve known the guy about 15 years and this is the first time we’d met! But, texting, talking, or posting damn near every day for half that time, you kinda get to know one another.
He’s a damn good dude!!
But, I planned on running him ragged and not wasting time. There was little sleep. No down time. And a lot to do. So, we hit the ground running. An hour after he got to the hotel, I picked him up and we darn near never stopped for 3 days. Hell, we did so much crap, I’m just going to post a photo montage with some highlight descriptions. Trying to write a detailed post would be a novel. So, here we go.
Welcome to Texas, Joe!!
Hunting deer with a handgun he’d never shot! He borrowed my Ruger SBH Bisley Hunter (has one of his own in Ohio) and after some dry fire practice to get used to the trigger, we hit the stand.
His first deer with a handgun.

Then went pig hunting. Used my short .308 Winchester and 168gr ELD-M factory ammo. Again, he’d never fired this rifle before. Just dry fire practice. And, he’d never hunted pigs in total darkness under NVGs.
After a fun stalk, 2 shots and 2 pigs.
By the time we finished cleaning everything up, I think it was 2am.
That was day one and the first 11 hours together!

Then, we went pig hunting again!
Another long stalk and a great shot from a standing tripod at 150yrds in darkness.
I think that day ended about 4am. I think.
A damn good time with a damn good man.
