The Meditations of Porcus Hogrelius are offered for purposes of entertainment and instruction. But, there is more…

From Wikipedia: Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (Latin: [ˈmaːr.kus̠ auˈreː.li.us̠ an.toː.ˈniː.nus̠]; English: /ɔːˈriːliəs/ aw-REE-lee-əs;[2] 26 April 121 – 17 March 180) was Roman emperor from 161 to 180 AD and a Stoic philosopher. He was the last of the rulers known, noncontemporaneously, as the Five Good Emperors and the last emperor of the Pax Romana, an age of relative peace, calmness and stability for the Roman Empire lasting from 27 BC to 180 AD. He served as Roman consul in 140, 145, and 161.

This good emperor was also a writer. His writings were not for publication but appear to have been notes that he made to himself for the purpose of improving himself.

In that tradition, The Meditations of Porcus Hogrelius are published with a similar intent: to make us better hog hunters.

Motivations for hunting the feral hog are numerous: pest control, recreation, organic pork, to name a few. Whatever your motivation to hunt, it’s in your best interest to get better at it. How to get better? Find better equipment, develop better methods, find better locations, find better people to hunt with, find better techniques for meat handling and preparation, become a better marksman.

The meditations that will be serialized in these pages are based on actual experiences. As the narratives progress, you will see a progression of equipment and techniques.

These meditations are offered with one goal in mind: make yourself a better hog hunter.
