Re: What do you hunt with?

i hunt them pretty hard, so they don't stay in one place very long. here are some in a pecan orchard.



a lot depends on what crops are planted and when they are harvested. sometimes i have to bait near bedding areas to draw them out. that's when i like to try my luck with the long shots. i've taken them with long range rigs from 500 to 1,050 yards!

yea they're legal... with a little paperwork and some fees. texas legalized them for game animals last season. we can use them on deer! i use them because they are "farmer friendly". i may be in somebody's back forty in the middle of the night dumping a magazine while they're sleeping.

Re: What do you hunt with?

Haven't hunted hogs, as yet. However, as they've moved to within a few counties of where I live, I plan on getting some hog busting in the near future.

I've been considering 3 weapons, with a GP-100 357 Mag 4" bbl as backup - in the following order preference:

1. A Rossi Pumain 357 Mag 20" bbl, using HARD cast bullets and/or LEVERevolution handloads.

2. A Mossberg 500 12 Gauge loaded with slugs out of a rifled barrel.

3. A Savage 340 in 30-30 Win, using LEVERevolution or Noslers handloads.

I had a friend in the Army who had an argument with a hog, and I've seen the scars... I want to be able to put them down. Of course, putting bacon on the table would be nice, also.

I hunt with a friend of mine in south Georgia. He is overrun with hogs and they have become a nuisance to the point of running off the deer herd. You can't keep deer feed out because they gorge on it until it's gone and run any deer off of it that try to eat. They also get smarter if you hunt too hard. For the big old boars 300 lbs. up, I feed them 647 gr. 50 BMG.

Re: What do you hunt with?

i tried my hand at lever actions but i don't do well with open sights amymore. i finally bagged one with a 45-70, but i cheated and used an ir laser with a pvs14 mounted on a skull cap.



i like the shotgun more. again, i prefer some type of optic and i get decent range and accuracy with slugs. plus, it has the added bonus of being the perfect protection weapon when trailing wounded hogs in the brush. with a tac light and buckshot, what you see is what you get!



i like a big bolt gun as much as anyone. this is the latest 338 lapua kill. i have a friend with a 50 cal, but he/we haven't shot anything with it yet. waiting for the suppressor to come in. the recoil isn't bad, but the blast for bystanders is absolutely devastating.



of course there's the old fashion method of just driving up on them and sticking the gun out the window. got these last week. hoping some show up under the full moon this weekend!



good hunting...
