Hunting Tales

TBNHC winds to a close Sunday

PICKTON – The Texas Big Nasty Hog Contest is winding to a close in the woods of East Texas.

“We have had quite a few hogs turned in, but it doesn’t seem as many as what we had last year,” recalled Jared Brumley, co-founder of Bluecollar Bowhunter.

Despite the cold temperatures in the air Brumley said that hasn’t really affected the contest. “Normally, animals move around more prior to a cool front,” he added.

10-year old Maci Merrell used a Remington .243 to take down her first kill, a Whitetail deer, over Thankgiving weekend 2009. She was hunting with her dad, Tim Merrell, in Franklin County.

PICKTON – The Bluecollar Bowhunters’ Texas Big Nasty Hog contest continues to see results as the rumors flood the website.

“There have been 37 reports of hogs harvested on video so far.  Some of the videos have been reviewed and are looking good,” BCB co-founder Jared Brumley recently reported. “Some of the hunters have been having a bit of bad luck and some are having extremely good luck but that’s hunting – you never know what is going to happen when you step in the woods. However I can't give any weights out.”

PICKTON – The rumors have already begun to fly as the wild hog population in the East Texas Piney Woods diminishes.

The second annual Texas Big Nasty Hog Contest has officially started. BCB co-founder Jeremy Sickles reports that there were officially 60 teams entered in the contest – 10 youth and 50 adult teams.

“We are very excited about the contest this year and had a good turnout,” Sickles said. “We would like to thank all of the people that help get this contest up and going…I can not give out any weights on the hogs killed so far but I can tell you that the hogs are a lot bigger this year than last year.”

PINE FOREST – With the Pine Forest Community Center parking lot full of 4-wheel drive trucks in February, it could only mean one thing – the start of the second annual Texas Big Nasty Hog Contest.

“Over 50 teams have signed up so far,” said Jared Brumley, co-founder of the Bluecollar Bowhunter and sponsor of the TBNH Contest. Doubling the number of competing teams, the contest continues to grow in success.

This archery only contest – compound, recurve, and longbows – is currently underway, but this year the BCB team has extended the registration date an extra week to accommodate the growing number of teams interested in competing. Registration has officially ended.
