You're Up Rookie. Ronnie's First Hunt.

We recently gave away a hog hunt on our Hog Forum from Cedar Canyon Ranch near Tehachapi CA. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a brand spanking new hunter named Ronnie from Fremont CA was the winner. A "Rookie", "Norman New Guy", or "Fresh Meat" as we call them in the sporting world. Let the razzing begin.

I always enjoy watching kids and new older hunters discover how much fun it is to be out hunting. The awe and amazement on their faces is all the reward I need to keep me going. It's like teaching a kid to ride a bike when they pedal away and look back as if to say, "Look at what I can do now."

The affliction is spreading it appears, Ronnie's friend Paul, who came along to help out, is now studying for his hunter safety class.

Huge thanks to Bill Taylor who runs Cedar Canyon Ranch, Paul our guide and the rest of the crew. They were great hosts.

Enough yapping, here's Ronnie's hunt. The Rook did just fine.

It is always a pleasure to hear that a new hunter is being brought into the fold! Good luck to him and his pursuits!

Good Hunting!

Nice video, Jesse! I love how you got in there and looked for the entrance and exit wounds to show how it went. I always want to see that stuff - get a little Pig Hunt CSI action. Far more than anything I see on TV, this video showed what the hunt is really like.

And of course, congrats to Ronnie for his successful first hunt! That's a sweet feeling.

I'm 0 for 2 on pig hunts this summer and watching this really makes me want to get back out there.

Thanks Holly and Albert. Keep plugging away on the first pig Holly, I'm still looking for my first big toothed boar myself. So many close calls but no joy yet.
