Fourth one this week!
« on: July 06, 2017, 06:22:06 AM »
Attached are pics of the first and fourth hogs I have killed this week.  The second and third hogs were about 70 lbs a piece (no pics).  No big story other than the distance of the shot.  The story is similar for all pigs, I wake at the slightest hint of daylight and scan the fields with my binoculars.  If they are within 300 yards, I grab a heavy pillow and the 7mm mag so I can prop up on the rock wall around my porch.  They either drop on the spot as is the case with the first pic or run 30 yards and bulldoze into the ground (2nd pic).  If they are spine shot or gut shot they normally squeal "like a stuck hog" (PUN intended)...LOL.  These two pigs were 315 yards and 275 yards respectfully.  I normally do not feel comfortable shooting over 150 yards, but when it comes to pigs I will stretch it out further.

keep after them. looks like great target practice.

do you leave them out for yote bait? you could really burns some ammo if they want to play

are those beans? just for the deer or are you going to harvest them?

nice work

Good job!  I was thinking you should enter them in the varmint contest, too!

Yari - Yes, I use them for yote bait.  I "unzip" them first with a knife so the entrails are easily available (they have extremely tough hides).  Those are 120 acres of soybeans for harvest, but double as a food plot in the meantime.  Saw 47 deer night before last with 21 of them being bucks!

Louie and Bluetoe - Hogs are not on the accepted list of critters for the varmint contest.  Hopefully they will draw in the yotes which are on the list!

Well done Ben!  Great shooting, and keep it up, contest or not.  The deer numbers are darn impressive too - wish you lots of luck with those this fall.  If you can stay on top of the hog population, you'll do a lot to keep your deer numbers up.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Granted, most of the bucks are small, but nonetheless they have horns.  I will get cameras out this weekend and start posting some trail cam pics.
