It finally quit raining long enough to get back in to some Perry County river bottoms looking for some swampers. We started slow with a heavy frost on the ground but when things took off they never slowed down. We ended up killing 20 swampers and 13 hillbillies 33 in all. Toward the end of the day we had several get away but we will gladly leave them for future good times. We needed a bigger tail gate for this one, we had to lay some on top of others but still made for a good pick.

Na we had 14 dogs in all. We split them up and hunted half the first part of the day and the other half the second half of the day.

I bet you had a ball. I can remember hunts like that but it's been awhile. I used to hit the bottoms for swampers and sometimes I'd pick a few up in areas not far from bottoms. You can sure tell when the dogs are running a swamp rabbit versus a cottontail. I loved to fill my hunting coat with them or slip their heads under my belt until I had to make the trek back to the truck. Those jokers will get heavy.
