TX Pig Hunt

A buddy of mine asked me if I'd be interested in a mid range hog hunt. Absolutely! he had feeders set up at 550 yards and 405 yards with a protein feeder at just under 200 yards. After a wild 4 wheel drive, a flat tire, and a pleasant hike in, we arrived at our shooting position.




Here's a picture of the feeder at 550 yards at 3X zoom.


This is the feeder at 405 and the protein feeder in the foreground. Again, theses are at 3X zoom.


A few showed up at the 550 feeder a couple hours before sun down. We tried to set up a simultaneous shot but the pigs would not cooperate and my buddies decided I needed to shoot before they were all gone. Lucky for me, the pig I was on happened to be the stupid one. I connected.




Here is a picture of the entrance wound.


I was shooting a Rem. SPS Tactical AAC/SD in a B&C Stock with a Timney trigger. SWFA SS 16X glass. Ammo was Hornady Superformance 178 grn. match.

    Pigs are fun, I'm curious why you would blank your faces, were you trespassing or just hiding from the law?

    Thanks. Nothing illegal in the least. I don't post pictures of my face for the same reason I don't post my home address or credit card information. Not to mention, my ugly mug doesn't add to the story at all. I'm not that narcissistic.
