There is stuck and there is STUCK! #knowyourlimits ! #fivetonfun This is why we keep plenty of five tons on hand, for moments like this, when one of us (not me, of course) overestimates his trucks limits. Good times. #m939 #m923a2 #m939a2 #5ton #mud #mudfun

Time flies when you are having fun. Can’t believe it’s been 20 years coming to DSC shaking hands, meeting people, getting old. I remember when I started people used to say, “you are a lot younger than I imagined” somewhere along the way, I stopped hearing that ... 😐. Sucks getting old. With age comes wisdom and experience though right? I have been lucky and blessed to be able to hunt a hell of a lot of places in the time that I have been doing this. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change much. #hunting #dsc #biggame

Guess his weight then swipe to see the scale. Don’t cheat! He was a big boar! I got tired of all the over exaggerating of weights of pigs, and not really knowing how much the deer and pigs weighed, so I got a scale after shooting the biggest (mystery weight) pig of my life. #boar #hunting #pigsofinstagram #pighunting #boarhunting #wildboar #wildpigs #jager #jagermeister #hoghunting #hogs #wildhogs #wildhoghunting

If I could just remember 1/10 of what these hats have seen. I can actually look at each one of them and each one can bring back at least one strong memory. - - - The white hat was worn by my friend Pat Green on stage at The Sons of Herman Hall when he Opened up for the Dixie Chicks (Ugh) - - - I got the black one on sale in college and named it the “Mo Better Hat” cuz you just felt Mo Better when you wore it. That’s what I was wearing when I got tossed by the old blind paint horse and broke my neck. ... More stories than I have time for. Now they hang by the door at the ranch house. - - - Lots of memories under those hats. Lots of memories. #memories #patgreen #painthorse #cowboy #ranch #ranchlife #cowboyhat #cowboyhats #hunting #hunts

Bulgaria, hunting near Sofia in January. My buddy Jack smacked this Boar while I was hunting nearby. What a beast! I think it was 185 kg if memory serves me correctly. I have hunted 5 of the 6 huntable continents. I love Africa, love America, but Europe has some great and very affordable big game hunting. Some of the best quality left in the world. I believe Africa has mostly shot itself in the foot, although, Zambia and Select areas around Botswana and Zimbabwe still provide excellent opportunity, a lot of the Africa I knew is now gone due to greed and ignorance. Hunt where you can while you can! Contact me if you want some guidance. I have been doing this since 94. I know a few people! #hunting #wildboar #wildhogs #wildhog #hog #hogwild #hunt #jager #jagermeister #jagergirls #vitinya #sherba #bulgaria #bulgarianhunting #leupold #leupoldcore #pewpew #pewprofessional #pigs #pigsofinstagram #pighunt #suppressors #

For every picture, there is a back story. Some are boring, some are interesting Before Instagram existed, this beast roamed the earth, terrorizing everything in his path. And he was a gigantic beast!- - - It’s Oct 2005, I had finally gotten strong enough to drive to the ranch on my own. My previous attempt, a couple weeks earlier was a disaster. The doctors said I had almost died from Malaria. I believe them. Anyway was enjoying the sunset on top of a knoll overlooking the river when this beast came trotting across the bottom field. Happen to have a 375 H&H with aLeupold 1-4x20 in my lap. Guessed the yardage and sped and let one fly. “Whop! Squeeeeeeelllll”. Carry on enjoying sunset. When I drove down to the bottom, this guy was laid out across the road, right where you see him. I didn’t have the strength to move him, so I went and got a tripod and camera and did the “delay pic and run behind the pig” exercise until I was worn out, which was about 3 shots. I won’t venture a guess at the weight, because I will be either ridiculed or way off. But, I will say that this event prompted me to buy a 450 lb scale so I could weigh anything up to 900 lbs by using the snatch block method. As a rancher, I have shot, conservatively, over 100 pigs. We leave them and move on with our day. Guys, he was huge. I doubt I will ever see anything like it in North America for the rest of my life. #hog #boar #wildhog #wildhogs #feralhog #hogzilla #hunting #leupoldcore #ranch #ranchlife #barnesbullets #remington700 #375hollandandholland #pigs #pighunting #hoghunting #hoghunt #tusks

Salmon caught on our vacation to Alaska, and BC this past summer. We picked the one clear day of the year. “The bait hates the sunlight, so it goes deep, we will be lucky to catch a few today.” We were lucky! We caught 6, I believe between my wife and I. #salmon #fishing #salmonfishing #britishcolumbia #bc #fishing #saltwaterfishing #saltlife #saltwater #ratherbeluckythangood

My best Aoudad, my only Aoudad! Good thing he is huge! I have guided a lot of Aoudad hunts, and put a bunch of them on the ground. The Aoudad has got to be my favorite animal to hunt in Texas. I know, it’s blasphemy to not say Whitetail Deer, but a good spot and stalk Aoudad Hunt is something you will not soon forget. They are majestic creatures, strong, beautiful, and unforgiving. You will usually earn your Aoudad if done on a true spot and stalk adventure. #aoudad #aoudadsheep #aoudadhunting #audad #awdad #doodad #hunting #whitetail #whitetaildeer #pewpew #pewprofessional #tactical #deercamp #leupold #leupold4life #remington700 #30ot6

Rooster fish. Bucket list fish. Check! We caught some others and hooked some fish that just took line like it was theirs to take. No chance of landing them. Fun, frustrating to know that you will not win that fight, and to not know what’s on the other end of the line! A great trip. #roosterfish #costarica #fishing #saltwaterfishing #saltlife #crocodilebay

I’m not a fan of measuring my Deer. It almost always brings out a tiny bit of disappointment. If I thought he was 140, and he was 135, there is a tiny let down, thought 160 and he’s 150 I’m disappointed (how can a 150 disappoint you!!!) I never want to let a tape measure dictate my enjoyment of a hunt. Only let it confirm the size of a true giant and then only measure it with caution and the proper expectations in place. - - - - ok, so with this guy, I can hope for a better free range buck, and I can and will try, but at close to 180 inches of antler, he’s my best, by over 20” and I almost didn’t measure him. It took a while and looking at a 160 hanging over me and seeing how small he looked in comparison for me to say, ok, I’ll do it. I wasn’t disappointed. I was shocked. I didn’t want to believe that I had killed such a magnificent deer. I just told myself “No tape measure, he’s a solid 160, and just be happy.” And I was. How could you not be!?!? Over 25” spread, 5+” mass measurements and old. AND last afternoon of the season. What a fantastic and beautiful buck. #whitetaildeer #whitetail #hunting #hunt #remington700 #remingtoncountry #leupoldoptics #leupold4life #leupoldvx6 #pewpew #pewpewpewpew #pewprofessional #tactical #laruetactical #cabelas

Flaunt it if ya got it! Sunrise the next morning headed home. Hard to believe that’s 180” of free range antler there. Since I’ll never likely see, much less shoot a deer like that again, you know I had that rack tied in 100 different ways! #hunting #whitetail #whitetaildeer #deerhunting #remington700 #remington #pewpew #pewpewpew #pewprofessional #leupold #leupoldoptics #leupoldvx6 #260remington #nosleraccubond #ranchlife #ranch #silencerco #saker #silencercosaker
