Hog Pics

For about the past month I have been noticing some hog activity at my place. It has been about 15 years since we have seen any activity there. 15 years ago we trapped about 75. So about 11pm we headed out. Full moon, luckily! We were sitting about 50 yards from the most recent activity when we heard a crunching noise. I steped out and through the scope saw what I thought was a white pig with black spots. I fired the 270 once and my buddy hit the lights. All we saw was dust, and after sitting there the dark starts playing tricks on your eyes so I just assumed that if anything was there I had missed. No squeals, no blood, very few tracts. We drove around looking and only saw a cow and 2 calves. I figured if anything I had shot a calf!!

The next morning this is what we found.....50 yards from where I hit him!

Est. weight....180-200, One shot........of pure drunken luck!!

You don't see cutters that big with hogs that have some demestic in them. Just shows how fast they can go back to being wild. We have some land in North East Tx and the hogs are taking us off. We try to take as many as possible but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

They breed so fast that it is really hard to stay on top of them. Our place is nothing but mesquites and grass, but they tear up the grass and that's not good for the cattle. I know even just seeing him that there must have been 10 others there too.

Yeah that did suck. Even with the cooler temp that night he was ruined by the time we got there. The big ones aren't that great for eating, but the babies.....yummy!!!

Unless your bow hunting its really easiest to just pop them right behind the ear and drop them.

They have so much skin fat that they usually wont ever bleed, makes it a pain in the *** to track them.

I used to shoot about 3-4 every weekend.

Best fun is bow hunting them at night.

Just setup a little red light area with some corn, easiest on a white rock road, just sit and wait for them.

I used to fall asleep and be awaken by them grunting and crunching on the corn haha.
