and running backs during
football games.
They like to go out and
catch some big hogs every
now and then.

some fellow hunters from
Central and South Texas,
scored big in the Marranos
Muerto Los Cazaroes Hog
Challenge Jan 30-Feb. 1 in

contest and a good one to
win.”
Contestants and teams
hunted game with dogs,
starting Friday evening and
going until Sunday afternoon at 2,when the weighin occurred.
JT Miller and his team
sought their prey out on

fun.”
