It's called the Hog House Field, and the name fits it well. Just under 20 acres and nestled among a clear cut of briars, stumps, tree tops and a huge swamp of trees, the small gem of a field is one heck of a turkey hunting spot. A commercial hog farm borders it, creating noises not accustomed to the quiet and peacefulness that one expects from a hunting location.
Early mornings, while it is still dark, the hogs begin squealing and making a ruckus. The noise is deafening and would wake the dead. At feeding time metal lids could be heard clanking from feeding trays.
Trucks come and go, transporting the unfortunate to a place of no return. Employees talk loudly and play music that you could hear while hunting. This is one noisy field, not suited for a hunter who wants complete solitude.
