The dogs had chased the hog a long way from the boat, and they needed some help. But that is another story.
After helping my son-in-law and his hunting party pack the hog back to the boat, my buddy and I headed back to our camping site.
By the time we got back to the camping site we only had about one hour of light left. We broke out the camp stoves, cooked a quick meal of Mountain House freeze dried foods, then started the camp fire.
