Speaking of photos . . . here’s where I’m collecting photos from this year’s hunt. They include a very wet first work day and first camp out and work days. Now I’m adding photos as we prepare to hunt some deer and I’ll be updating when time allows.
The Crystal Pig Hunt club property recently had the trees harvested and the leftovers bulldozed into piles. This is the week to burn the piles and it made for quite a sight during the evening hours last night.
So the 2013 Rustler Hunt is commencing as we do final preparations for some serious woods hunting. We’re into the rut so our timing is perfect as the bucks are chasing the does! Many sightings already.
I’ll probably be doing most of my postings after the hunt is over next week but will try to update you when time allows over the next few days.

The 2013 deer hunt is officially titled, The Rustler Hunt. Why? Because we have the support of New Holland and their fantastic utility vehicle – the Rustler. I work with New Holland as one of my sponsors on AgWired.com, a ZimmComm New Media ag news website. We got to talking about some creative ways to create more online brand recognition and one thing led to another.
Throughout our deer hunt which commences this Saturday you’ll see the Crystal Pig Hunt Club (CPHC) in action with a Rustler camp 4-seater! It is sweet and I can’t wait to show it to you.
Before the official Crystal Pig Hunt Club was formed we hunted near Pilot Grove, MO for many years. This is a photo from our hunt in 2010, one of our last ones on that property. We are now located in central Georgia and have one addition to the group. More about that later when we meet the hunters.
Pictured (l-r) are Luke Zimmerman, Gary Cooper, Eli Zimmerman, yours truly Chuck Zimmerman and Paul Zimmerman. We’ve got a lot of memories from hunts that go back a lot of years. I’ll periodically pull from our archives some photos and stories for you.
We’re in the process of creating the theme for this website and will start things off later this week.
