East Texas Feral Hogs

While not a long range hunt, I took my great-nephews on a feral hog hunt this past Saturday, in East Texas. They shot 5 hogs, at distances between 100 and 168 yards. All good one shot kills. I was quite proud of them. One is 16 and the other is 13.

    These hogs are destructive. And, they breed way too fast. They eat good, though.

    I Went to Del Rio Texas in spring 2011 and the hunting was terrible. I was disappointed with the number of hogs we saw based on people saying how many hogs there are. Have any of you had many long range hog opportunities? Most of what I have seen on tv is short range shots under feeders.
