HOSTING SOME MARINES AT MY HIGHPOINT RANCH, SO FAR THEY HAVE TAKEN 16 HOGS AND 1 AOUDAD EWE, PLUS CHEROKEE TRACKER HAS 1 HOG. LAST DAY TODAY. ALL 3 GUNNIES ARE FINE YOUNG MEN, HARD CORE HUNTERS AND WELCOME BACK. MOST HOGS TAKEN WITH AR's IN 5.56, 300 WHISPER AND 6.8 SPC, NO HANDGUN KILLS.

Good for you, Rey! Just spent a week with one of those marines' mom and grandparents. Talk about excitement! Several calls were going back on forth!

Good deal! Should be one heck of a barbecue!

I just found this! One of those Marines belongs to me (Grandson) him & his 2 buddies made a pact 13-14 years ago that someday, if the stars aligned & they ever got stationed at the same post together at the same time they would try & put some kind of hunt together, never dreaming it would actually happen.
All 3 have served multiple tours in the Middle East & now are stationed on the east coast. Some how, some way their dream came true, that happened through Forum member Rey Garza who took them in & made their dream come true. And for that I'll be eternally thankful. In chatting with Cody & Rey on almost a daily basis everyone was having a wonderful time that will probably be a life changing experience for these 3 young Marines, thanks Rey!

FINAL COUNT WAS 17 HOGS AND 1 AOUDAD EWE FOR THE MARINES, AND ONE GUNNY HAD TO LEAVE ON FRIDAY TO GET BACK TO HIS UNIT. I TRIED ALL THE AOUDAD HOT SPOTS BUT THE AOUDAD WERE NOT CO-OPERATING. CHEROKEE TRACKER (CHARLES) WAS A VERY BIG HELP IN HELPING ME GUIDE, AND WAS ABLE TO GET IN SOME HUNTING, GETTING 1 HOG AND HAVING OTHER OPPORTUNITIES. A BUNCH OF DOES, LITTLE BUCKS AND AN IMPRESSIVE 6 POINTER WERE COMING INTO THE MILO PILE IN THE FRONT YARD REGULARLY WHILE WE WERE SITTING ON THE FRONT PORCH OF MY WIFE's CABIN ABOUT 20 YARDS AWAY, FIRST TIME THE GUNNIES HAD EVER SEEN DEER UP CLOSE LIKE THAT. SIXSHOT's GRANDSON CODY MAKES WOODEN FLAGS THAT HAVE FURLS IN THEM, AND CHARLES AND I EACH GOT ONE, THESE FLAGS ARE AWESOME. WILL POST A GROUP PICTURE IN THE NEXT DAY OR SO.

Glad you hosted my fellow Marines, Rey! Well done! Now were they all actually Gunnies (E-7s) or are you just calling them that? Just curious.

MAX: ALL E-7's, WITH 12-13 YEARS IN SERVICE. THEY HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR ABOUT 12 YEARS. THEY ARE COMBAT ENGINEERS. IT WAS "YES SIR" "NO SIR" WITH NONE OF THAT "YEAH" SH.. AND ALWAYS HELPING AND ASKING WHAT THEY COULD DO.
