Moody Younger: Hog Hunting and Commercial Real Estate ~ DRealEstate Daily, February 17, 2014

One recent Saturday I went on what has become an annual hog hunt with NAI Robert Lynn broker Sam Hocker. Sam introduced me to this sport a few years ago, and I have been hooked on it ever since.

Hog hunting with Sam on the Red River is not for the faint of heart. We hunt the hogs on mules, with dogs. Your only weapon is a Bowie knife, and you only have one knife, so you are not throwing it. This is brutal “hand-to-hog” combat.

The hogs fight back and sometimes win, by injuring the dogs, or you, and getting away. You have to keep your wits about you to avoid serious injury. The goal is to “bring home some bacon”, or a nice boar’s head as a trophy.
Fortunately, we did both on that Saturday.

How does this relate to commercial real estate brokerage?
