Dropped a couple more to finish out the year.
Put em on the kill counter!! BANG BANG!!!
Just a sample of the few I took last week on my days off.
That’s keeping the pressure on them.
Buzzards be lovin' you! All those tender Happy Meals...
Took some meat to crews at work and they cooked up some asado! Turned out really good!
Dirt-napping song dogs are the best ones!
few more Ga kills
That bruiser needed a tape put to him, lookin' like yellow banner fodder to me.
he was fat but i think this guy was bigger. Had a nice set of cutters
Me and my buddy out with Hog SWAT in GA last night. We dropped a couple. This is the biggest, about 150 lbs. On the run my 3rd shot connected in the neck after I got the lead right.
It was a bright lit full moon night and we couldn't stalk closer than 150 yds on all set ups out in the freshly plowed open fields we were in.
Cavity Back 168gr MKZ's
Armasight Predator 640 2x 19mm
Vortex Viper PST 1-4x
Omega SWR suppressor
Looks like you're doing it right!
A downed hog to be proud of, no doubt. Hunting with a good friend is hard to beat!
Dressed the way in the pic seems that you should have been able to get closer.
We wear all black or dark browns. We stalk the open freashly harvested peanuts fields during the full moon,one directly in back of the other moving somewhat slow in a crouched position.
I have found that in some cases where you think that they see you,they actually hear you or smell you.
Good goin' on them kills. Keep after them.
Be awhare of what is in back of you. If there is a security light a half mile away,I believe that the hogs can see you silhouetted against the light.
Also . . . if the hogs are getting alot to eat they are more content and less likely to scrutinize the horizon. --- pruhdlr
I don't get out but one or two three day trips a year and I have to say last night's full moon was too damn bright! Haha
If I was still using night vision I would appreciated it. But I'm not. The hogs seemed alerted when we would get too close past 150... the alpha of the Sounders popping their heads up acting like they know we are there. Or the lone boars doing it. The guide played the wind great, checking with his talcum powder poof bottle. And we did stalk up in a single line. Dead quiet. But you're right. One of those things we didn't do good enough.
BUT - - > For your info . . . on a full moon night we can get closer to deer than we can "roaming for food" hogs.
Once the hogs have found underground peanuts,spider roots,worms,grubs,etc,and start pushing and shoving each other for a place at the dinner table,we have gotten to within 35yds of them. --- pruhdlr
Yessur we worked on it last night! We had a couple 50 yd encounters. It was bright as I don't know what! But we and the guide worked harder at getting closer this night. It was a blast!
Couple big boys. One went 256lbs according to the tape. The other went 267lbs according to the tape.
Nice cutters on both of them too.
