Re: Bean Field Whistle Pigs

Killed another one yesterday on the same farm but another field. This field was planted in soybeans after the winter wheat was harvested. The beans are only a couple of inches tall. The chucks can really do some damage. Took him with my 22-250 at 233 yards.

Re: Bean Field Whistle Pigs

Killed another GH in the beans again today. Five years ago the coyotes had just about wiped out the groundhogs in my area. After concentrating on the coyotes on my hunting places for five years the deer, turkeys and groundhogs have really made a comeback. At least they don't eat the calves and piglets like the coyotes and they're better eating.
