I take my Varmint gun, the Hogs show up. I take my Hog gun, the Varmints show up!





I never take my camera when I go hog hunting, because I don’t care if I have good pictures of those horrid pests, to share. But I always take my camera when I go Varmint hunting....because my cell phone can’t capture the true beauty of Fox, Coyote or Bobcat hides.

I went Hog hunting this evening, hogs were a ‘no-show’, but this Bob Kitty came strolling though.

.17 HMR would have been perfect, but I had the SOCOM with me, so a 405 gr. soft point was all I could deliver.

Too much gun and crappy cell phone pics! I’m going to bed…………………

Well......I had to walk almost 400 yards out my back door too. But I didn't want to say that earlier...lest it sound as if I were whining. wink

Oh Yeah . . .

Several times my buddy (who owns the land where I hunt) and I have gone out in the middle of the afternoon to check on fences, gates, cattle, whatever — without a rifle — and encountered hogs we didn't expect. We now have a policy that we never ever go anywhere on the property without at least one rifle. It may be just an AR-15, but as they say, we don't leave home without it!

coolpics checked my cam's yesterday... Several pics with button buck right in front of cam, next pic, minute.. Something under oak tree, by corn feeder... Checked other cam.. its a bobcat... Both just seconds of being on same frame bout 25+ yrds apart...
cheers Lance... While my posts are not worth 2cents on texasHF... rofl If ya hunt hogs enough, sooner or later, hogs gonna charge... Hunten with dogs, hogs gonna be runnen wild with dogs on their trail... A wounded hog being pressured.. Gone inta thick stuff after wounded hogs both day & night time hunts... Been blessed...
Twice had hogs charge... First time, tried getting pic of it, with new cell phone, slinger pistal strapped by me side.. Daytime, going threw thick stuff, hit thinned out area, sow put on bluff charge then 4-5 little ones stepped out with another sow.. Closest one bluffed again, while others went wee-wee-wee back inta thicket with other following... Less the 15 feet, fast action, no shots fired...
2nd time, forgot fanny pac, carry my camera in it, at truck... Shot at hog, spun ran straight at me, had ta side step at last second ta keep from getting knocked down...
Both times during day... Night time advantage goes ta hunter with high-tech NV, Thermal & sillancers ... Much safer than caveman days.. At night sound of gun, no telling witch way hog gonna run.. Yagh, can't fix stupid... rofl i'd be right thar with ya, with me alian body parts ... Stay safe... flag

Checked my game cams this afternoon. Hogs came in 2 hours after I left. They really know how to add insult, do they not?

I don't keep the hides, so I use a 6.8 or .308 and they both take care of business.

Haven't had that problem hog hunting, but did have a day muzzle loader deer hunting where I spent several hours in a tree stand with squirrels running all around me. I didn't think a .54 muzzle loader was appropriate for the little tree rats. Finally about 10 AM I decided to go back to the truck and get my .17 HMR and rid that stand of the pests. Walked across the clear cut to my truck, put the muzzle loader away, took the .17 HMR. Walked the exact same path back across the clear cut to my stand. Bounced a nice 8 point buck that ran about 20 yards then stopped broadside to look at me. All I could do was put the cross hairs on him and tell him how lucky he was (or how unlucky I was). Got back to the tree stand, sat in it for 2 hours and didn't see a single squirrel.
