My neighbor has family in town from Chicago and his dad wanted to go on a hog hunt, the last time they tried to get him on a hog he fell asleep in the blind
. There's no blind hunting with me so I warned him there will be some walking but due to his recent knee surgery we used the truck to avoid the hills. About 30-40 min into the search I made the mistake of going up a hill with the wind on our back, as soon as we leveled out on the hill I spotted something dark zig zagging about 40-50 yards in front of the truck I pulled the thermal out and it was a solo pig... I got his dad out of the truck immediatley this hog was spooked and he wasn't sticking around for long, we got about 60yds away I set the rifle on a gate so he could have a steady shot and seconds later he drilled em. The hog got up and ran off in the brush we ended up finding it moments later with a bullet wound in the [censored]. I told em you gave that hog a Texas heart shot
apperantley the hog was moving away when he took the shot so that explains where the bullet went.
I got a text from his son saying he was like a kid on Christmas day this morning he couldn't believe he got a hog.
