Not the best shooting by me on the firt group of four, managed to get three of them but took way too many shots.

They were really close to me so the plan was to shoot the closest one first driving them away into the open field, then take out the largest one next. Started off great with the first hog going down dead right there! The second one I hit low which slowed her down. Third hog turned right at me! Just could not get my lead right on him for some reason, turns out he was only the size of a liter bottle I was thinking he was a full grown hog so my lead was all wrong doh! With thermal if you do not know your the size of something in your screen you can be really thrown off as I was this time.

As I swung back around to check for hogs I found the last hog out about 80 yards and poped her twice for the finish. While gathering the hogs with white light from my truck I heard something splashing back at the pond. Turning the thermal on I spotted a boar leaving the pond just missing the opportunity at a perfect broad side shot I had to take a rear end shot, the shot was about 100 yards and was good but he took off the second shot put him down for good.

Also got a pistol kill with the FNX45 and RMR combo the hog was on a fence line just laying there not sure if she was sleeping or what, was able to get right up an her and two shots in the ear she just rolled over dead. Got it on video with the thermal but she was coated with wet mud so was not showing up very well (predator! Arnold thermal camo lol).

Awesome video and editing! Walking up on the sow must have been a rush Congrats. How do you upload to youtube in such high quality? My videos always lose quality and clarity when I upload to youtube.

Actually that one was weird just bang flop and a little twitch I was fully expecting her to jump up at me any time, I thought it was going to be a boar also though since she was alone.

As for youtube I always record and upload in the highest setting possible even if the thermal only puts out 640 resolution I record in 1080 and upload in 1080 it seems to help.

I was beginning to wonder where you had been. I got so used to seeing a video ever week when I got to work.

Good Video.

Very Nice Video !!

Normally I'm not a fan of music in hunting videos, but this was subtle enough not to be distracting.

Again, very nice!
