Since I amd forced to sit here at the house and not do anything, including heading to the woods chasing the pigs. I might as well share a few pics of some that we have already gotten. Over the past three years my friend Tim and I have really concentrated more on hunting hogs than just about anything else. So here are a few we have rustled up from the underbrush, and reached out and touched across the pastures. Almost all of them top the 200# mark easily, and a few push or break the 400# mark. See if you can tell which.
First just a quick morning hunt, took my bud Tim and me about 45 minutes to get there and shoot, then about three hours of cleaning.
We got this bruiser while filling up one of the deer feeders. Took us about an hour to drag him up out of about a 20' creekbed and load him on the trailer.
This one had some REAL ivory on him. Made me glad he was out there a hundered yards or so when I popped him. These are the ones that will hurt ya up close and personal.
Can ya say "MEAT HAUL" Not bad for a 300yd shot with a 16.5" barrel rested on top of a pair of bino's huh. LOL
This ol bear tried his best to get me good. If I would have panicked, it would have been bad news for me. He was hit, mad, and knew just how to use those choppers.
THis is one of our friends very first hogs. Not a bad way to start out. Took it with my little .308 you see in most of the pictures here.
And here are a couple that me and my little buddie picked up here and there,
This one pretty much stretched the limits of not only the little Ruger set up, but my shooting as well. It was a shot across our back pasture, of about 450yds, resting on the front rack of the 4 wheeler, with about a 20mph wind coming cross range on me. All I can say is, on these you shoot'em or at them when ya see them.
