We have a couple wheat/cotton fields that could offer up to 1100 yard shots. So i thought why not give some of the guys into LR hunting the chance to take a hog at these distances. If anyone is interested please sent a pm and we can talk about it more.
I think it's a great idea !!!!!
Hogs learn very fast and long range confuses them because they have trouble figuring
out where the shots come from .
I have plenty of hogs and they need my full attention , But some one should jump on
I have killed hogs beyone 800 yards and am not afraid to try farther because even a poor
hit will do them in and they need to be controled. also at long distance you normally know
if you hit them because of the squeel you hear after the shot unless they are stone cold dead.
My brother likes to use an M1a or an FN to work them over, He has killed 4 or 5 at one time
this way with shots of 700 to 800 yards.
I prefer to use a bolt action and can normally get at least 4 hogs before they dissapear.
Anyway, lots of luck and good hunting.
