Nice job Fabio. How was the hunting?
Ungodly amount of deer. Cool seeing so many deer in velvet. I saw probably 40+ 130" deer.
Hunting was pretty tough, chasing the Nilgai pretty much ate up the entire trip. Weather was really hot, so stuff was bedding down all day. Past few weeks of rain made vegetation thicker than normal, again adding to the difficulty of spotting things. Stalking through the sandy soil and hot temps beat you up quick (especially in longsleeve shirt and pants). I can't tell you how many bottles of water I drank.
Shot a few limits of doves. To me, that was really good. But to them they said they were both "off" nights in terms of bird numbers. Saw a BIG bobcat, but of course only had shotguns at the time. Turkeys, quail coveys, coyotes, pigs, javelinas etc.
Shot my hog, missed a javelina at 150yds +. To my defense, it was a pretty rough shot. Difficult to get a good mount in the terrain that's there. Most of the shot opportunities are fleeting at best unless you are hunting a blind with a feeder.
