    In 2018 I had a large sounder really tearing apart the ranch on the Northwest corner (I had three sounders working the place then). Trying to put a stop to them is how I got into the thermal game.

    By spring of 2019 I had their numbers down to about six smallish adults in the 100 lb range, the last one being killed in March about 11 months ago. I had not seen them since.

    Last week I noticed that I had a handful of boar rooting spots in the Northwest pasture. Two days later I found about a half-acre rooted up. So I started going out every night again. This is where I killed the 150 lb boar a few nights ago.

    Last night I caught five more hogs out in the open. I managed to put bullets in four of them, killing three. Unfortunately I made several poor shots to open the engagement, so I played catch up.

    Nice video!

    Things like unstable ground are factors that people at home have no idea about unless you tell them, and even then, many really won't understand the significance. Good job under bad conditions!

    Nice shooting, really. Getting three down and a probably fourth is darn good in my book.
    Enjoyed the video, thanks for posting!

    That wasn't bad shooting, you just needed to get them moving so they could get far enough out so you could hit them. Nice going.

    Dead Okie pigs look a lot like dead Texas pigs.

    LOL...yeah I was kind of irritated after my first few shots...maybe it caused me to buckle down. That second sow though took two crappy hits and wasn't phased a bit! She just kind of trotted off after the third.
