Pig pipe workin

Although not long range from this location i thought i'd share a photo of a pig pipe i hunted yesterday. It's a kneeling position holding my rifle with 1 hand and camera with the other, very frustrating but finally got a decent shot. The black lump in the top left of the scope is another 5 mature pigs and 8-10 suckers bedded down.

Ended up with 9 kills from that mob and that location Happy

    It's a piece of PVC pipe capped at one end and a scew lid on the other, fill it with fermenting corn (Or other suitable smelly pig attracting food), put 3-4 1/2" holes on it and then tie it to a tree or rock with a metre or 2 of rope/chain.

    The pigs smell the corn and have to roll the pipe to get anything out of it (The 3-4 holes) it takes a long time for them to empty the pipe as they only get a few pieces out here and there but enough to keep them working for it.

    I needed dog food so got up reasonably close and just kept shooting, ended up with a line of dead pigs streching over 500 metres. They ran left to right so even the longest shot was only about 400 metres.

    This kind of Pig hunt is why I own M1-A's and an DPMS LR-260.

    Heck of a fine job with the old Mauser there or is it a Model 70?

    Model 70 XTR Varminter in .243, 95gn Accutips, does the job good enough but a new .308 will be taking it place for this type of hunting soon.

    Thought so.

    Might consider looking at the 300wsm in the coyote or coyote outback too especially if you plan on stretching it out.

    I already own .308, 300wm, and 300wm in multiple platforms so I cant' justify owning one although I'd really like to.

    Add that to three 7mm STW's and the LR-260 and I'd have a hell of a lotta splain'n to do to the wife if I brought one home LOL

    Again, nicely done.
