Had a good hunt last night. This was apparently one of several hogs that have been damaging the property, but he was the only one that came out.

Despite seeing the video, I was unable to find the entry wound and the 6.5 Grendel Hornady 123 gr. SST round did not exit, which is rather unusual given the shot placement.

I had plenty of time and critters to watch before the hog came out to really get things right this time on the scope.

Awesome. I just love the view through the thermal scopes, it reminds me I haven't had enough time behind mine this year. Concentrating on deer hunting, but that's coming to an end this weekend. The view through my monocle is just not the same as the scope. Anyway, I digress...

Awesome hog. Nice cutters. Great shot. Love those one shot CNS kills. Were you in a blind or sitting out in the open with a bipod? Very steady either way.

I was in a blind. There is a shelf under that particular window where I can actually press the mag of the rifle against the shelf and provide additional bracing and that helps a lot as well.

I tried to explain to a guy a couple of weeks ago that looking through thermal can be just like B&W TV and he didn't understand - made me feel old. frown
