We were hunting in W. Texas- Cisco over the Thanks Giving Holiday. Nasty weather pretty much the whole time Rain/cold/sleet/Mud & more Mud . My wife wanted to hang with us & hunt the whole weekend & she did. We both passed on some does hoping they would draw some bucks but that was a no go. Deer seem to have better sense than to be out in the nasty weather. It seems the only animals stupid enough to be out in the rain/cold/mud was us & Pigs. So our deer hunting turned into a pig hunt. My wife has been wanting a "BIG PIG" and this is her First. He was weighed after gutting @ 190lb so according to Processor he should have been in the 230-240lb range. Not bad for her first pig!
She hit him in the neck @ 152 yards shooting a Stainless Weatherby in .243 / Hornady SST 95 Grain & he was "DRT" ( Great Shot BABE).
Anyway two of us "BIG Guys" tried to load this Pig in the back of a Can-AM, too bad it was not video taped my wife had a good laugh watching us slip/slid & fall down in the mud with the pig on top of us ( one big wet/cold/smelly mess). Finally remembered I had a Come-a-Long & chain in the bottom storage of the Can-Am. Wrapped the chain around the top of the Roll Bars & hooked Come-A-long to that / removed the tailgate / wrapped nylon rope around the Heart area of the Pig and was able to lift him high enough so we could load one end at a time. Told her after this was all finished if she shoots any thing bigger I am just going to drag it off for the Yotes. Any way here is the Pics. Congrats to my wife. hetman(AKA Steve)
P.S. after dropping pig @ processor we had to take our hunting clothes to a hot water car wash & power wash them & then run them thru a local laundry mat to get the Mud & smell out so we could do it again the next day(STupid)
