At 6am driving my 4 wheeler thru the woods and going down into the river low water crossing on my way to the deer stand, as I am rounding the turn to descend to the river I was shocked to nearly hit a big hog that was acting like deer in the headlights and was right next to the 4 wheeler like I could hav kicked it. I stop and grab my rifle, it steps into the brush 5 yards and stops, then takes 2 steps and stops so I shoot thru the brush, no aim just pointed the barrel in the direction, I could hear the pig walking away and disappeared in the brush, I found it odd that the guns shot did not cause the pig to bolt, I am unsure if I hit it, it has been a long morning sitting in the deer stand wondering if I have piggy down. In the meantime I have been covered up in deer this morning, 5 or 6 different bucks, 4 or 5 doe and some turkey. Nothing big enough to shoot, in the next 30 minutes it wl be time to go back to camp and look for a pig, I feel like the bullet deflected but will find out soon.

That's crazy. I want to see pics and/or know what happened to that hog when you get a chance. Great story and I hope you got him. Good luck and I hope you have a great hunt!

Pig down. Literally walked another 5 yards after the shot and that is where he laid. I shot in some thick brush as you can see in the pic, he never made a sound after the shot only heard a few steps figured I just hit to much brush for a kill. The trusty ole 243 came thru again.

Big hog. You are prob the first thing he has had a reason to be scared of in a long time.

Nice hog.

Can't shoot at something I can't see though, just can't.
