This will make some people smile!
Hog hunting in New York got interesting this past week. My partner and I hunt a preserve in New York every year and we just got back Tuesday afternoon. Massachusetts has a small number of hogs, very small and we wouldn't know they are even there except that one got hit by a car on a local highway last year. Now then, while hunting our favorite preserve Colbrook Hunting Preserve, a hunter brought in a wild hog, shot just a bit South of Syracuse. It was a sow, weighing in at 225 lbs. and it had a litter of piglets it was nursing. The hunter caught all but one of the piglets and come to find out, there are quite a few more wild swine there as well.
Some believe they are spreading up from the South and some think they got loose from the preserves, either way, they are wild and breeding like, like, well, like swine do!
I blasted my year's pork with a 180 gr. HP fired from a Ruger GP-100 357 magnum revolver at twenty yards, right in the head, just below the ear and made mashed potatoes out of everything ol pork chops was thinkin' about.
Next year we'll go back and I think it will be either a longbow hunt or a flintlock hunt.
