Yes, DO TELL!!!

It's even better when you are after a nemesis that has won before.
I also feel your victory as I have spent plenty of time chasing various educated pigs myself....

Thanks for all the congrats! I woke up in a good mood for sure!

That was the 6th time I've hunted that boar. On 3 occasions he didn't show up at all, which was frustrating because he'd been on camera every night. 2 times I could see him way back in the treeline, just staring straight at my blind. He knew I was in there somehow. I came to the conclusion that he was getting spooked by the IR illuminator on my night vision scope. That's when I came up with my plan.

The IR flash on my trailcam lights up the whole area where the pigs feed. What if instead of the flash, I set the cam to video so the light stays on continuously?

I got there early, switched the cam to video for the 5 minute max. I knew it was going to work when a couple of young bucks walked up at dusk and set the video off. I could see them perfectly through the scope without turning on my illuminator. A few hours later, I looked through the scope to do a quick check. Noticed the video light was on. Swept to the left. There was Pig Daddy. Put the green dot on his forehead. Bang! Flop! And that's the story of him. And I got it on video on my trailcam. Bonus!

That's awesome man. Did you get him right here in Greenville? Im right down the road from you in Caddo Mills. I didnt think Hunt County held any that size. Evidently Im not looking in the right spots. Congrats again! If that were mine Id definitely be doing a shoulder mount for my garage.
