Yep runshot,,, but from my experience with these critters you can't pick the gun for the hog, when he shows up like that one did.

    Re: Calling Hogs

    I've killed my biggest pigs with a fox pro calling for yotes. They came into a distress call. Both times were at night. I was using my DPMS with a color thermal night scope. Man was I surprised!!
    I never guessed that they would come into that but boy was I wrong.

    Re: Calling Hogs

    To add a couple more angles, can anyone recommend techniques where electronic calls, night scopes, lights or bait aren't allowed? (Yes. California.)

    lol..... I don't know about 00 buck .... i got a trailcam pic of one that took a full load and he looked like he healed up, alive and doing well... So I stopped carrying a shotgun after I saw that.

    I heard of that happening one other time... good to know and I will try it. Right now I got 3 groups of pigs and I'm resetting my traps; since they know the trigger points and one big hawg blocks it, so others won't trigger it. They all eat and leave. I had to set up cameras several ways to figure it out . Fixin to set up for a night hunt to get the leaders, now. I used a double trip wire and it would have worked had the trigger bar on top of the doors hadn't stuck that night... or they may have bit the wire off, because it was cut...... Dang it!

    Re: Calling Hogs

    This is a new one on me for sure! Never heard of anyone calling in hogs before. last time I went up to Burlinton,TX with my younger Brother all we used were "pig pipes" and some LED's to provide some light. Red lights by the way. Could hear hogs over in the adjacent property but only spotted one hit the pipe and wasn't able to take the shot. Gonna have to research this one a little further that's for sure.

    We use pig pipes also and they work very well for us. The only two times I tried calling hogs I called in coyotes but a friend of mine called on on our place. Big sow like mentioned above. For places where calling is not allowed the best bet seems to be watching travel or feeding spots at dusk and dawn, or moving to Texas where you can kill them any way you want.
