Don’t need to read online articles, I have seen hogs return to the same spot in day light 4-5 days after the corn was completely gone. A lot of hogs got shot

my next dog will be a mastiff.Would you reconmend a bull mastiff of a mastiff.And i love the black.
l would recomend a Cane Corso. very inteligent dog. if you want something that looks a little more dangerous then a persa canerio would be good. thay both are very dominant dogs so you better be a tough and rough owner. you have to be the Alpha or it will be trouble waiting to happen mate.

not an expert. been to texas twice hog hunting. both times the emerging forage was more to their liking than the corn on the ground under the feeders. we got tired of sitting in box blinds and went to the bedding areas and snuck around in the creek bottoms. we only killed one at night during two hunts, six others by silent stalk. gotta have the wind right and lotsa creek bottom/water to hunt. snake boots and close quarter rifles are helpful. big pigs are hard to drag out.

Do some research on the Internet I don’t remember where I heard it it’s been many years but a pig is one of the most intelligent domesticated animals supposedly smarter than a dog
Sure, smart. Apparently smarter than a goodly percentage of hunters who can't figure out how to hunt animals that won't walk right out in front of them and stand still at 25 yards and wait to be shot. You hear sayings like, "He didn't grow that big by being stupid." Which is true. Stupidity contains few calories. When you think about it, many of the really big hogs got that way by being scared, timid, and eating a lot.

Harder to hunt than rabbits or deer? Maybe, but that isn't saying a whole lot. Coyotes are pretty darned smart canids as well and we kill a lot of them.

Last I checked, humans are supposed to be a whole lot smarter than dogs, dophins, chimps, or hogs. Yes, hogs can often figure out the amazingly simple schemes people some up with to get them. It isn't that the hogs are all that smart, but that the humans aren't trying hard enough.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
