Had a great hunt over the weekend in the Freestate in South Africa. Went to my uncle to help shoot some porcupines. They are a real pest over here and can cause alot of damage to crops.
We hunt them at night being that they are nocturnal creatures. The quills are very sharp and can injure you if you happen to run into them. I am holding a 22 Hornet with a 4x32 wide angle scope and use 46 grain soft point ammo. The started well with 3 good sized porcupines. The 4th one ran lateraly and tried to shoot it in the head. It fell after the first shot, we loaded it because it seemed dead. Just as we were chasing the next one we realised it was still alive. It raised it's quilss and I got two in the calf so did my cousen (in picture). Scared the hell out of us. Here are a few pictures. Shot 16 in total.
