Re: What do you hunt with?
Tnwhip I like the idea of a 444 Marlin! Nice rifle!. Nice load of hogs too.
A little off the subject but...
Seeing your load of hogs reminded me of a funny thing that happened late one fall evening several years ago. I was working in the shop and looked up and watched one of my peanut farming neighbors drive thorough my electric fence chasing a sounder of hogs across my wheat field. I wasn't concerned about it as I heard him start shooting. In about 30 minutes he came driving down the road with a load of hogs like yours and was dragging a large boar with a chain that they could not load because he was too big. He asked me to turn off my fencer so he could repair my fence and I told him that when he finished I would turn it on and he could go back home. A short time later one of my deer hunters walked up pretty darn mad. He demanded to know who the idiot was that drove across his wheat patch shooting and messing up his deer hunting. This bowhunter was a big man, ex-military, a man that you could tell that was used to getting things his way even if he had to thump you to get it. He said he was hiding behind a tree waiting for the deer to jump the fence to eat wheat when this guy comes tearing across his field shooting, making lots of noise and when the hogs got to the fence they turn down the fence and this idiot follows them running over them with his pickup. He throws his bow down and starts walking over to the fence to thrash this guy when the pickup slides to a stop, the driver falls out of the pickup and grabs a double headed ax and starts chopping up the hogs he's run over. The bow hunter said he stopped walking, turned and walked down a draw to avoid a confrontation. He said he didn't think he could whip someone that mad. It all ended up with everyone laughing about it after we explained how bad hogs destroy peanuts but it took a little time to get there.
