If you ever have the budget (cash) to combine hunting with a long 'Rundflug' to DFW, maybe you realize that you can hunt wild pigs from a small Robinson helicopter in Texas (much lower cost than small turbine types). The TX House passed a law which allows private charters for "heli-pig" hunts.
Youtube offers a few ideas, and the prices are not as high as I had expected.
"aPorkalypse Now....", and there is easy access to four large TX cities.
Some of you guys seem to have larger budgets for guns after you retire. Our house won't be paid off for many years. This is exactly why I acquired six surplus handguns and a few thousand rds. of 'reserve ammo' since last winter.
I have 33 months to go to retire at age 50. I started planning my retirement not long after starting my career, so I shouldn't have to work afterwards unless I choose. The past couple of years have been an internal battle not sell of some seldom used toys other than guns. But I have resisted the urge because I worked hard to get them and figure retirement will offer more time to enjoy them....As far as shooting goes, I now shoot 1-3 times a week. I doubt if I will slack off in retirement.
Then I bought a 16' jon boat and expanded the flooring, added carpet, a 24v trolling motor, cleats, rod racks, good seats, fish finder, etc. and went bass fishing more often. My first largemouth over 9 pounds. Caught on a spinnerbait.
Then the end of last year I got a trim young girlfriend who works 3 jobs, goes to the gym 4x/week and has a new puppy. She 60, looks 46, and I'm 65 and trying to keep up. I'm not allowed to post her pic. Too bad.
That's OK. That great looking largemouth made up for it!
It's just temporary. I got sidetracked with some other hobbies, and went into the rabbit hole for a while.
I'll be out there at least weekly real soon, probably next week now that it's cooling off here.
I just have to fit in shooting between taking the kid to school then the after school stuff.
Well, and my occasional afternoon nap...
