Re: What do you hunt with?

yea i thought he got away too when i saw him run like that. if you play it frame by frame you can see blood on his back leg just as he comes out of the dust cloud before he runs behind the tee post. he took several hits in the ham and one in the gut quartering away. the gut shot was enough to stop him about a hundred yards away.

that was a 30 round mag, so there were a lot more shots fired than you would think from the sound. even if every shot had missed, it was pretty fun trying it. you can't aim at all with that much movement, but the hogs was only 35 yards away so it was certainly doable.

Re: What do you hunt with?

I too am a proponent of the one shot, one kill philosophy… for game animals. One shot is usually all you get! For hogs, however, I have heard that sometimes multiple shot opportunities may exist.



That's purely academic of course, as I probably read it on the internet somewhere. Surely no one has the ability to rack up double digit kills at one time…







unless... ummm... unless you're the most interesting man in the world!

Re: What do you hunt with?

here are some big hogs. sometimes i get a little excited and the trigger finger isn't as steady as it should be. it wouldn't bother me at all if i had to empty a magazine to bring them down.
