    A small group came in just after dark. At night I usually aim for the neck or front shoulder of the hog. Tonight I went for the ear with the 300 HAM’R and how lucky I was. Mostly luck with only one green light working! 7D6C73E9-DEF4-4B71-875F-86E7589FC0D0.jpeg 800CF0B5-999A-485B-AE63-D76E4982C7BF.jpeg D6D552B9-02BD-46F2-941B-3E0F7B86F14F.jpeg

    Ear shots... my dad told me about his dad (hunting bears in the Alaskan arctic) telling him "shoot 'em in the ear". Gramps used a rolling block single shot .22. With no disrespect in my voice, my reply to dad was: "Gramps was nuts." LOL But, that's all he had in those days and you waited for the spring barge to arrive to bring ammunition, so nothing was wasted just shooting at paper. To the day he died, dad would enjoy coming to the range to watch us shoot, but he wouldn't waste ammo on paper. My old Ruger 3-screw .44 killed a bull moose fired from dad's hand (iron sights). He knew how to tickle a trigger.

    Gramps would hand my dad the gun and and three shells and tell my dad he wanted two ducks. Dad always tried to bring home two ducks and two live shells.

    That is too cool. Awesome story, thanks for sharing. I think I may understand what gramps felt like waiting on the barge, this ammo shortage sucks.
