I wish you luck Jessie. I'm not much for bait hunting either. I much prefer spot & stalk. We went up the river again last night and managed to take another small boar, this one went probably 5 1/2 feet. He was chasing a sow & 2 cubs up the hill. I wish that I would have had my bow, 'cause he came out of the alders about 40yds from us. It was a good stalk, took us about an hour to get up the hill and into a postion where we could see and shoot from. Lots of good sausage this summer.
