    Went out Wednesday night to use my new Zeus 640 75mm HD and got on one sounder. We didn't leave the house till 10:30 and I lollygagged around trying to learn how to take some better night photos with my new camera so by the time we were done with that it was 1:30. We both had work the next day so we quit then.
    Managed to take out 10 of the 12 in the sounder. I'm an idiot and didn't think I would need my DVR since I was in a rush and thought that since the hogs were so close to the trees we'd only get a few shots off. Well..we took out the two bigger pigs first and the rest had no clue what to do. All ran right towards us and would just kinda run around some and stop. Made it nice and easy to pick them off. Even got a twofer while they were running. Two piglets lined up perfect and the bullet went through the first ones neck and through the hips of the one behind it..of course I didn't have my DVR for that..

    Anyway. Trying to learn how to do long exposure photos..the photography stuff is complicated.
    Mad I moved a little during this shot but it's hard to sit still for 30 seconds with pterodactyl size mosquitoes eating you alive.

    Always fun when you're killing hogs..you know that.
    Hope y'all can stack up some hogs and not any dirt clods. I know those dirt clods are probably nice and big on some of these plowed fields!

    You must have taken another shirt just for pictures, usually by that time of the night your shirt is drenched in sweat

    Nope those aren't out yet. When I say new I mean I just got it. The HD lens model is relatively new I think.

    Our loss, for certain (no MDVR). But, the pix tell the tale of an excellent adventure. Nice work on the pix too.
