Shot with 3 different guns!
« on: August 03, 2018, 12:29:54 PM »
Early this morning, while sitting outside drinking coffee enjoying the quail and painted buntings, I noticed a few dark objects coming down the grass road.  I grabbed my binoculars and confirmed there were two hogs coming my way.  The wife and I previously decided to store her .243 under the bed for these instances as opening the safe takes too long.  I grabbed the rifle and shooting sticks and headed out the door.  As he was facing me at 200 yards, I worried he was going to jump into the woods so I fired.  I have never heard a hog scream so loud and for so long as this one.  It was a full two minutes.  We searched for him briefly in the tall grass then decided it was to risky.  Fast forward three hours to 10:00.  I was on my way to the entrance gate to let a trucking company in that was delivering my new tractor.  Low and behold I saw a large black boar standing in a field with his had down as if he was eating.  I stopped the buggy, grabbed the sks out of the gun case and let one fly.  He ran toward the creek and I followed.  He was limping so I fired another round....down he went!  I get closer on foot to inspect him and notice he is still slowly breathing, so out comes the .22 pistol we purchased for armadillos.  A follow-up shot behind the ear makes him stop breathing for good.  Upon inspecting him, his mouth was split open from the earlier morning shot.  He also had one club/deformed foot.  We took him to the coyote spot, slit him open and will be waiting for coyotes tomorrow morning.  (Sorry such a long story)

I'm thinking Been needs a Barrett in .50 BMG for those hogs, they sound pretty tough.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
