      Hey everyone!! Well it’s that time of year again!! Time to start thinking about whacking pigs!! We’re planning our THIRD annual Blood Brothers Outdoors Boar Hunt at Superior Game Ranch up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

      The date is set!
      February 20-22, 2009

      Same place as last year. We typically will arrive on a Friday evening, hunt Saturday all day. Watch videos and celebrate the days events Saturday night, then hunt as needed Sunday and head home Sunday afternoon or whenever.

      Here’s what to expect for expenses that weekend:

      It’ll depend on how big and what type of boar you want….

      Here is the confirmed pricing Jeff has discounted for our group:
      – Big Russian Boar: $650
      – Smaller Russian Boar: $500
      – 700 lb. Buffalo (male or female): $1000
      – 1000lb. Buffalo (male or female): $1500
      – Fallow Deer: $1800
      – Corsican Rams: $650

      Other Expenses to Expect:
      – Tip for the guide (typically $40-$60)
      – One food item (we do a potluck that weekend at my brother’s house so I have each guy bring something to share)
      – Gas money to get there and back

      I need a $100 deposit from anyone going to hold your spot. Balance is due when you arrive and before we start hunting. Send your deposit to me at:

      Jarrod Erdody
      Blood Brothers Outdoors
      13331 Burchett Rd.
      Plainwell, MI 49080
      (make checks payable to Blood Brothers Outdoors)

      Deposits are non-refundable.

      Jeff has a lot of great boars this year! He said we can bring as many guys as we want, so there should be room for anyone that wants to hunt.

      **CRITERIA**: No criteria gang, just plan on having a great time and hunt the way you want to hunt. We’ll have cameramen available for some but filming will not be required.

      Here’s a list of those currently committed to going:
      (D = Deposit Received)
      – Jarrod – D
      – Dan Infalt – D
      – Lee – D
      -Eric – D
      -Jake, Cameraman
      – Casper, Cameraman
      – Chris K, Cameraman
      -John Erdody, Cameraman
      -Eddie Stanton, Cameraman (might hunt too)
      – Dawn (hotterthantiffany)
      – Greg

      (contact Jarrod if you’re coming and your name isn’t here yet!)

      Here’s a video trailer of our 2007 hunt:

      That’ll do it…it’s going to be a blast! Bow or gun, or knife or spear…choice is yours!

      Rumor has it a couple of the guys are going to hunt a buffalo this time!!!! I can’t wait to film that drama!

      I saw/filmed Erics’ shot but didn’t hang around for the recovery so I need to see a pic soon! It was a running shot at 150 yards in a blinding snowstorm, honest, I got it on film. πŸ™„ OK, so this was a teaser and we’ll let Eric give us the facts. Just be sure to have a pic with the story.

      Well since you gave yourself away, the video shows you about 20 yards from the little piggy running scared πŸ˜† Mind you I was about 6 feet from the piggy and kept recording the whole thing……..But Casper is right HE wasn’t the one screaming, the other dude was! :mrgreen:

      Deb, don’t think I will air any of it on the show as Jarrod has plans for the footage, but if something changes i will let everyone know when to watch.

      And you all have to know, it’s just alittle good natured ribbing, Dan’s right it takes smarts to get out of the way……..it takes turning off that little voice in your head that says RUN YOU IDIOT! to stand in the path of a mad hog. :mrgreen:

      Thats funny. You should see the video of Jake’s pig eyeing me up before the last shot. Dan takes the shot and I instantly start running πŸ˜†

      well hey everyone finally got this thing going again kinda……..
      the weekend started out on the lake, jake ,casper and I stopped at my cabin to fish for some pike mainly. we got a bunch of flags and ended up w some nice bass and a few pike.
      We finally got arrived to johns cabin after cruising w a dead body from all the running and walking from fishing. Ended up hitting the jager with casper a little hard πŸ˜† …..eric some how rolled downstairs and passed out. NO one had a clue where i went lol…… so we wake up to first start stabbing piggies. Had some awesome kills and brutals ones ( HEAD SHOT CHICKY) i mean dawn. watching dans awesome catch n release was freaking priceless.CAUGHT ME A PIGGGGGGGGG!!! ANDS I GOTS ALL 12 FINGERS STILL!!
      O we went on to the buffalo hunt and we located them shortly after arriving because there was another group that wounded one…..we got a perfect natural push come by us at around 30 yards CASPER JAKE LEE AND CHRIS all had the cameras rolling…..as they trotted by i placed a solid double lung shot on the buff and the pack took off. once they passed i recovered the arrow and it was good deep red blood. we couldnt believe it passed through. i used a muzzy mx-3 and used a mx 4 last year that passed through my boar last year.( awesome heads) we had great blood out of both sides. we could see the blood rushing out right away on his side. The pack ran through the field about 300 yards and reached a clearing in the woods. by the time we got there greg and jake were coming through the woods and pushed the pack through the woods. the blood was thin by now and we barely had anything. We followed the thin blood for hours and hours, there was another one wounded and we didnt believe it was still alive after that lung shot. we ended up leaving that day and coming back in the morning with frustration. When we arrived sunday morning jeff the owner noticed a large pack of ravens circling by his house. low and behold there was my buffalo right by the lane where they first ran into but he went into the other side of the lane into the cedars that we stupidly didnt check. by the time we got there the ravens pecked at him a little and the boars ate his ass out. 😈 but i was happy we recovered him.





      heres the pics of the lungs that the muzzy destroyed

      We had a close call, well i didnt but jeff and jalen did when they were searching for the pack of buffs, a huge cow at least close to 2000 lbs came full boar and got about 3 ft from the snow mobile, it was hilarious and scary at the same time. seeing jeff and jalens face was priceless.

      We moved onto the next buffalo with jeffs permission to take out since the hunters from saturday had to leave, the buffalo was wounded with a 300 mag and we were going to take in out with jalens .270. we picked up jarrod and the crew and cruised in jeffs truck till we located the pack and found the buffalo that was wounded and knew it was him. we had a few cameras on the bull when we found him and i took my time with a well placed shot and dropped him in his tracks.

      All in all it was a great trip like always and ill be back for the piggies next year with vengeance!!! 😈 πŸ˜€ thanks again john for the housing and everything. and to jarrod for the organzing and everything. It was great meeting greg dawn jake and eddie.

      Hey Eric, how far out of the way did you guys go on your way home??? Sorry for not keeping a better eye on you when we were headed back towards town. By the time we realized you had turned the wrong way, it was too late to catch up. You must have passed the Knotty Pine Bar… hopefully you didn’t get to Ralph (that’s a tiny 1 horse U.P. town).

      It wasn’t too far out of our way, at least it didnt seem that way. We did pass the Knotty Pine. The gps had us take the worst back roads you can imagine. The tatonka was covered in slush and we were really close to running out of gas. There aren’t any gas stations up there!!! Thanks again for letting us stay. It was nice to meet you!

      Start saving now………it really doesn’t cost that much, you put away $25/month and by next Feb you will be able to pay for a good hog.

    • #48107

      Hope you guys make it up next year!

    • #48116

      Dawn –
      Can you give me the stats on your bow setup? One of the things I was worried about was whether or not I was drawing enough poundage to kill one of those big hogs. What is your draw weight and what type of broadhead did you use?

      Oh yeah forgot to note this: the buffalo that charged Jeff and I got shot a month ago while we were in Missouri. I’m happy someone killed it. Now the bull is in charge ,but he still walks toward us whenever we get too close. πŸ˜† Anyway just wanted you guys to know that. And next year when you guys come up the buffalo and elk will be in another pen with Jeff’s new aoudad. There will just be deer, hogs, rams, and fallow. I’m going to shoot a hog tomorrow so…….wish me luck. Hope you guys the the video out soon.
