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:
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
– Casper, Cameraman
– Chris K, Cameraman
-John Erdody, Cameraman
-Eddie Stanton, Cameraman (might hunt too)
– Dawn (hotterthantiffany)
(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’d do pancakes for breakfast but they didn’t go over real well last year so maybe donuts instead.
February 19, 2009 at 2:58 pm #47429

February 19, 2009 at 3:29 pm #47432
They didn’t? I guess I don’t remember… I LOVE pancakes! I’ll bring boar sausage to have with them…

February 20, 2009 at 3:10 am #47510
Sweeeeet…..looking very forward to it. It’s been another long week at the computer for me and I’m ready to unwind….
I’ll cover more when we all meet up tomorrow night, but for now, please keep these things in mind as you travel up there tomorrow:
– footage of each person saying hi to the camera as they leave for the trip.
– loading gear into car
– weather…sunrise, sunset, thermometer, snow, sunny sky, etc
– shot of the vehicle pulling away
– footage going down the highway
– shots of various landmarks, (state line, mackinac bridge, welcome centers, restaurants you stop at, etc)
– some banter from each person in the car as you head north
Remember, keep it steady as you can, good audio, sun at your back. Have fun and be safe! Cya’ll tomorrow evening!
February 20, 2009 at 5:00 am #47519
You’re not asking for much are you! 😆
February 20, 2009 at 5:04 am #47520

yeah stop yapping and get here im waiting,,,, i didnt sleep at all last night….. hopefully we limit out on walleye and we can have a fry baby…..cya then everyone ….
February 20, 2009 at 2:22 pm #47526
Hey Hotter, do you think my pancakes bombed cause I used the “just add water” mix? Instead of water I used Leinies Honey Weiss, thinking that would sweeten them up. Maybe this year I’ll try using Leinies “Big Butt” Bock instead 💡
February 20, 2009 at 2:31 pm #47527
Beer ” breakfast of champions” !! That’s is a heavier beer, but I am not picky 😀
I made brownies…they taste good but look not so good 🙁
February 20, 2009 at 3:56 pm #47531
Just so long as they aren’t “funny” brownies, they’ll be alright
February 20, 2009 at 4:02 pm #47534
they are safe for consumption
1 more hour of work !!!!
February 20, 2009 at 5:59 pm #47544
I’m out the door gang…call my cell at 269-806-7740 with any questions or call my brother’s house 906-384-6366 this evening if you need to…see ya’ll soon!

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. 🙄 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.
February 23, 2009 at 3:16 pm #47708BuckbloodParticipant
Now that looks like a blast. Nice job.
February 23, 2009 at 6:39 pm #47715
It was fun, the highlight of the trip was actually when Dan let that caught piggy go and two grown men ran screaming like little girls!!!!! If you don’t believe me I have the video proof 😆 …..For the sake of not embarassing them I won’t release any names, but you might see it on a future DVD from BBO. 😀
Congrats to everyone that took home pork chops and buffalo burger 😀

For the record, there was no screaming whatsoever and you’d be running if Dan let a pissed off pig go in your direction!! 8)

Well since you gave yourself away, the video shows you about 20 yards from the little piggy running scared 😆 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!
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.
February 24, 2009 at 8:08 pm #47832
Congrats and a big thanks to all the dedicated camera men there!!!! should make for some good video for the BBO Hogfest DVD. Hope to get some to ya in a few months myself!!!!

February 24, 2009 at 10:46 pm #47845
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.
February 24, 2009 at 11:22 pm #47849
Glad everyone had a great time. Things didn’t work out for me this year, but man I’m going next year…..looks/sounds like a blast and those piggies look delicious! 8) Thanks for sharing the pics and stories — Eric, get you d@mn internet fixed, would you? Can’t wait to see tatonka…..

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 😆

February 25, 2009 at 2:28 am #47873
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 😆 …..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!!! 😈 😀 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).
February 25, 2009 at 3:13 am #47883
Congrats on your big pile or meat, tres! That’s a great story with a great reward!
February 25, 2009 at 3:23 am #47886
Great story and pics, Eric — congrats, that’s some tasty meat there too. 8)

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!
February 25, 2009 at 4:56 am #47906
Great story Eric!!!!! Nice bulls!!!! What can I trade you for a couple buffalo steaks????
Sounds like a real blast!!!!!
Rolled down the stairs, passed out and still able to hunt the next AM!!!!! Probably real glad you were using a bow!!!! Easier to on the ears!!!!!
February 25, 2009 at 5:15 am #47914
Congrats to everyone that looked like a freaking blast hopefully i can save up enough money to make it ip there next year.
February 25, 2009 at 2:18 pm #47936
BBD ” Big Buffalo Down”!!! congrats! Great pictures.
February 25, 2009 at 2:21 pm #47937
We had no problems getting back to Escanaba. mostly likely because I was in the car. Dan and Lee, you should have followed us 😆
February 25, 2009 at 8:57 pm #47956
The mother freakin’ buffalo was scary as heck!!! That buffalo wanted to mount US!!! If anyone wants to shoot a buffalo feel free to come up and shoot that cow!!!!!! 😆 I mean it!!!! All besides the buffalo incident it was a great time. It was fun to meet some of the members. I hope some other forum members make it up next year!!! 😉
February 25, 2009 at 9:57 pm #47960

February 25, 2009 at 9:59 pm #47961

Glad you found your Buff. Eric……I bet Jake,Dawn,Greg and I walked right past it after I quit folowing the blood trail with you guys….I just had a feeling it was in there. Thanks again to John for being a gracious host and putting us up and to Jalen the master guide for putting us on the boars…….Maybe next year I’ll bring my bow also and fill the freezer.
February 25, 2009 at 10:39 pm #47969

hey, i thought this was a piggy hunt, what are you doing shooting buff”S threelegs? 😆
February 26, 2009 at 6:06 pm #48047
Chris did mention that we should check out that section of woods but the main part of the group was on blood (the wrong blood) so we went with the crowd. Good shot Tres.
February 26, 2009 at 10:03 pm #48062
chris did call that…… genious
February 26, 2009 at 10:14 pm #48063
hey hey … I agreed with him 😀
February 27, 2009 at 5:06 am #48094Slob49Member
Man that looks like a great time 😯 I think I gotta do that next year 😀
February 27, 2009 at 5:12 am #48096
Looks like fun and Dave i agree man i think i gotta try and get up there next year.
February 27, 2009 at 5:27 am #48099
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.
February 27, 2009 at 12:49 pm #48107
Hope you guys make it up next year!
February 27, 2009 at 3:56 pm #48116
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?
February 27, 2009 at 4:23 pm #48119GreywolfMember
Looks like a great time Congrats on the hogs!!
But I’ll have to say, It sure looks cold!!
What’s all that white stuff on the ground? 😛

March 7, 2009 at 5:15 am #48699
I am interested in doing this next year. Just one question for everyone, do you welcome crossbow shooters ??
March 7, 2009 at 12:49 pm #48705
I know that Jeff allows them……(I pretty much work there). It would be cool to have a crossbow shooter……….. 8) 😉
March 7, 2009 at 2:26 pm #48706
Tanks for the quick reply. I am going to join the hunt next year with the Desert Stryker !!!! 😀
March 9, 2009 at 9:55 pm #48844
that stryker would lay it down for sure
March 11, 2009 at 1:50 am #49011
I plan on trying to smack down on one next year with the DS. 😀
March 13, 2009 at 2:17 am #49214
ok so after some red wine and ham (aka russian hog)I am watching Bow Madness, guessing it’s sponsored by PSE! Anywho, there is a contest called “I shot it with my PSE
” ( could win a Harley). Would it be wrong to submit the “face shot” footage? 😆
March 13, 2009 at 4:12 pm #49240
Hey, you never know Dawn! I know alot of us hunters would certainly be OK with it! Just not sure the Drury Boys can show it on TV! LOL! 😆 😆
March 13, 2009 at 4:23 pm #49248
😆 😆 yeah I really did pay to much attention to the specific rules!!
March 15, 2009 at 7:54 pm #49343

Hey Chris, where are the shots of Jake and I running like little girls!!!
March 16, 2009 at 4:42 pm #49380
Casper, I have those but figured I would be nice and not post them. Besides it’s funnier when seen in video form…… 😆 😆 😆 😆
March 16, 2009 at 7:54 pm #49407
Great pics, Chris! Gotta make that trip next winter — looks like a blast!
March 26, 2009 at 2:48 pm #50234
always fun come along
May 30, 2009 at 10:00 pm #54645
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. 😆 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.
May 30, 2009 at 10:03 pm #54646
Oh yeah Chris the earless sow’s name is “NoEars” not “Alf”. 😆 Just letting you know that. 😉
June 1, 2009 at 1:35 am #54710
😆 We are not oldtimers, he is just a youngin’
