Decided to do a quick walk this evening in north east Texas. Had my single shot 308 with me. Saw a group of about 15-20 at about 200 yards away. They all went back in the thick brush and undergrowth. Slowly made my way up. Then this guy walked back out at about 150 yards out. Not a hard shot but not easy when the rain is coming down and low light. Free handed the shot and he dropped in his tracks. Look like an old pig. Pics don't do it justice on the size. He is no hogzilla but not a bad one.

Thanks bud, it's always nice to watch them drop in the scope. I've seen a few amazing deer in this area. One monster behind my parent house. 100 acres and sure nuff big one on my 68 acres I inherited 2 yrs ago in purley tx. It's between mount Vernon and winnsboro. Saw him two weeks ago. Gun was in truck and I was talking to my brother. Figures. Lol. I'll keep mowing down pigs as long as I see them. They are jacking my land up. Hopefully big head comes back out!!!

Not that great. I'm sure bigger at one time. Not much of any teeth. Cutters wore down. This dude was cover in scars. It was fun.

Heard more this afternoon squealing. It was still raining. Never did come out. Saw a few deer too. All in all it was a good evening.

Heck yeah that is a good evening. A walk in the woods and a dead pig. Good job.
