Me and Tracy keep ourselves out of Tuskers magazine on purpose. It is a decision we made from the very beginning. Tuskers is not about us. We have had a lot of people asking us about how we got started over the last few years so I am going to make an exception here and give everyone a little of the history. Continue reading
We are going to start something new here at Tuskers. We recently got some camera equipment to start filming our hunts and share with everyone. Then we got to thinking… why not do it like the magazine where it’s not about us but about everyone! So we are going to start a sort of “video magazine” not really sure if that title fits, or what it will become but we are thinking about a group of videos that are very similar to what you would read about in Tuskers, but instead of reading… watching. Viewing will be free of course, this is just something that we want to try. We think it can be a tool for begining hog hunters and veterans alike. So we are inviting everyone to send us your videos of hunts, videos on dog health, videos on baying, or video rants. You can edit them, or we can help with the editing to make them slick. I have heard a lot of people complaining about hog hunting tv shows over the years, and we happen to agree with most of it. These shows are just mainstream entertainment, nothing more. We would like to have a collection of videos that is entertaining to hog dog hunters, minus all the drama. We will need to keep the gore to a minimum and the language clean, we will not be adding fuel to the left wing animal rights groups. AND we have some room in our schedule, so if you would like Tuskers to come and film YOUR hunt drop us a line and we will see if we can make it happen. firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s a link to our first small, start. Be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel and check back for new videos.

OKLAHOMA IS TRYING TO FOLLOW SUIT WITH ARKANSAS IN WHAT IS REALLY AN ALL OUT BAN ON HAVING LIVE FERAL HOGS IN YOUR POSSESSION. THIS IS JUST THE START AND IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE TRY TO STOP THIS NOW BEFORE IT GETS A TOE HOLD. ASK PEOPLE FROM ARKANSAS. THIS MAKES LIFE HARD ON HUNTERS WHICH WILL MEAN FEWER HUNTERS AND MORE HOGS. (SOUNDS GOOD TO ME… BUT THIS IS THE KIND OF ARGUEMENT THAT WILL REACH FARMERS AND LEGISLATORS TO PULL THEM TO OUR SIDE) FOR THE BAY PEN FOLKS HOW YOU GONNA HAVE A BAY WITHOUT A FERAL HOG? ARE YOU GONNA BAY DUROCS? EVERYONE NEEDS TO CALL OR EMAIL THEIR REPS, (OR ALL OF THEM). THIS IS JUST THE FIRST STEP, SO KEEP THEM PHONE NUMBER AND EMAILS IN YOUR CONTACTS! WE WILL BE GETTING A GAME PLAN TOGETHER. PLEASE SPREAD AROUND AND TAG EVERY OKIE HOG HUNTER YOU KNOW.
