Porkies !

Anyone go out with the express purpose of targeting porcupine?

I once bagged 5 porkies inside of what seemed like about 45 minutes.

Another time, during the middle of a full moon nite, I killed 2 porkies that were making quite the racket, intent on destroying a 2 hole, well built deer camp outhouse. Would have had 3, but 1 ran away, and I blazed away at him, but couldn't pick him up in the red dot. Got him the next nite, inside the shithouse.

I like targets of oppurtunity.

Re: Porkies !

I used to do it all the time when I lived in Maine. The population there certainly wasn't hurting, and it wasn't uncommon to see four or five if you walk/drive far enough down most if the logging roads up there. My Ruger 10/22 would dispatch them quickly after I learned that the fastest and easiest way to kill one was with a head shot. Before I learned that I wasted a couple of 10 round mags on more than one "porkie" before that final breath. They are tough animals!
