If you can catch them out in the open, it doesn't matter what you wear. Just hit the gas, powerslide into them, stick the gun out the window and get that trigger finger moving!!!



Heck you don't even need long pants if you're not going to be out of the truck too long.

Re: What do you hunt with?

Haven't hunted them for 25 years, but when I did it was an old 30-30 Winchester 94. It did fine. Most were killed at under 20 yards in the thick stuff. If I were to go again, I would use my R-25 Remington(AR10 style) in 7mm-08.

How far can you see at night with that scope. I have a DPMS in a 223. How much does a rig like that cost if you don't mind me asking? Are you shooting for fun or do you get paid to thin the herd? Great shooting!!

Re: What do you hunt with?

It's only a 4 power scope, but if there is anything close to a full moon overhead or at my back, I can see over a mile. I may not be able to recognize what I'm looking at until I get closer, but I can tell something's there. 6 power models are available, but I like the wider field of view offered by the 4 power for finding them after they start running. I got mine from JagerPro, but there are lots of resellers now. A high end scope in this brand will cost over four thousand.

I've been offered money to kill hogs, but I wouldn't feel right about taking money and then not being there on a particular night when hogs happen to do a lot of damage. I'm just glad I have places to hunt where I don't to pay!

My camera doesn't auto focus through the scope very well at night, but I assure you the deer I saw in the pic below were very clear.



Black hogs stand out even better.
