Visiting the folks yesterday, mom thought I'd like a photo and newspaper clipping from a javelina hunt pop put together in 1960. Dad's on the left, uncle and grandfather on far right. I'll type out the article below, it's a hoot. What, no camo?

PIG HUNTERS--An Oil City man, L.T. Black and a Pleasantville man, E.C. Lindquist, returned recently from a successful wild pig hunt in AZ near the Mexican border. Resting after the kill at the hunting camp are Donald Morrison, who now lives in Tucson, AZ .......

Oil City is a long way from the Mexican boarder! I grew up in Warren and all my family still lives there to this day. Oil City and Pleasantville were just down the road. That's a long road trip for a stink pig.

More of a friend's and family reunion with guns, bourbon and bacon. There were also similar Coues hunts and fishing trips to Guaymas, Mexico.
Dad, kneeling on the left is the last one surviving in that picture.
