Re: Long shots on Hogs?
Four out of a couple of dozen, in about 20 - 30 seconds. 100 yds, approx 300 yds, 400 yds and maybe 600 yds. After things died down, I laser ranged as best I could to where I thought they were when I hit them. First one was trotting. Found it about 30 yds from where it was hit. last 3 were running as fast as they could, panicked, but mostly away from me. The 2nd one I found maybe 200 yds from where he was hit, 3rd one made it across a small draw. Buzzards found it. The 4th one was a Hail Mary, and the Buzzards found it too. I heard the last 2 squealing for a little while. I was hunting out of my all time favorite stand. It was almost treeless, rolling hills, with over a 800 yd field of fire.
I probably should mention that it took 13 rds out of a semi-auto FAL to get 4 of them, but I did kill several rocks and badly wounded a cedar tree. It was great fun, except for a bunch of hot .308 hulls banging around inside my blind.
The hogs stayed away from my feeder for months after that morning. It supported my theory that hosing them down is good. They remembered it for a long time.
