Here's a tall (but true) tale...

Tonight I pulled of a shot for the record books. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't plan it, but I'll sure as hell take the credit for it.

6 hogs, 3 shots. On evrything holy, here's the story.

Got tired of sitting in the tripod at 2000 tonight. Nothing even looked at the feeder from what I could see. Rotated the chair to climb down and saw sow#1, with piglets, feeding 125 yds to my rear. Head on shot. One in the head, bang flop, all breaks loose,

The boar I didn't see ran to the left at 200 yds, then turned right to me and kept coming. Bang, flop at 150.

The last sow was leading the piglets to the woodline and stopped just short. (Here's the lucky part) I knew the piglets were behind her, so one through her ear, yielded 2 more head shots into the 2 behind her, and hit the 3rd piglet in the gut. I was out of ammo and used my knife on it.

Call me a liar, but dont ask me to do it again. Luck was with me tonight,
