    First, 1 extra foul/stinky boar at 40 yds near the river bank that busted us on the 4 wheeler, but didn’t make it out alive.
    Then we got 5 out of 6 from a group out in the open (300 yard stalk.. initial shots from 150 yds and 1 piglet made it out alive).
    Then a lone 260 lb boar that we made a 200 yard stalk on using random tree shadows/line of sight cover and shot from 90-100 yds away with the trusty ol “shoot on 0”... 3,2,1 countdown. Shots were at 90-100 yds, though my buddy thought we were much closer due to the size of the hog in his thermal scope.
    Then a sounder of about 20 that resulted in 4 confirmed with 1-4 more possible kills. This last sounder could have been better. We stalked to within 40 yards of the closest pig and when we went to set up, one leg from my shooting sticks slapped a leg of his shooting sticks and the sounder took off before we could get set up and count down.
    Solid night all in all... coyotes were howlin all over the place, but we never saw em.

    Outstanding effort for a night's adventure. Always great to get out and hunt with a friend. That's enough dead pig-skin to take the edge off a blade. Nice work.

    Helluva night out in the wild - guided hunts charge $500 - $1k without seeing nearly that kind of action.
