    Boyd,

    BIG MIKES, oh yeah, I know the place, right next to little sally's. [​IMG]

    What state is BIG MIKES in?

    BTW, you are a lucky little fart, you win all sorts of stuff. Need a partner? hint hint.

    If its up near Wellsboro I may know of the place your talking about, if not, then I don't.

    Have a happy holiday.

    Boyd, I'm doing one of those in NY January 7th. They are penned hunts so I would never do one for deer or elk. But, for some good pork I'm sure it will be fun!

    I thought about what weapon I would use and decided since it is a penned hunt that I would use my bow so I can enjoy those tasty pork ribs!!!!

    Good Luck & Happy Holidays

    Boyd,
    An acquaintance of mine did a similar hunt a while ago and he whapped a boar with a 168 J4 behind the shoulders, less than 150 yards with a .308 Win. and after a 7-8 hour search they gave up and never found the rascal. That is only one shot, one boar and one bullet so it might not mean a hell of a lot. I have shot a number of Texas critters with Sciroccos and Bear Claws and the .308 did a fine job.

    It will be interesting to hear how you make out with Matchkings, might be worth having a Barnes, Failsafe or BearClaw in the magazine in case you need a second go at him.

    Good luck, makin' bacon.
