...but not for a lack of trying.

We had a good hunt, all things considered. I just could not get my hogs to drop.

The Hessian's first hog was as he provided security as we checked game cameras down in the bottoms - I was running the computer to download the the SD cards. I have been in the bottoms before and heard hogs, so I had the Hessian bring his rifle. While going over images from one card, there was movement in the brush and I sent the Hessian to handle the problem that I assumed was hogs, because a group had just passed by the camera less than an hour earlier.

The second part of the hunt was in a high oats field that provided its own set of unique problems...

You clearly hit both of the hogs you shot at.

Like you, I don't count them unless I can put my hands on them, but I'd wager you will not see them again.

A good hunt all in all. Good Job!

Agree that you nailed both, you typically won't hear the hog slam into the fence unless injured. The second one was obviously hurt.

Funny the one recovered was another spotted hog. There is a serious pattern showing on here with those spotted hogs roflmao

I have some similar looking highways through the wheat field I have been hitting. I am done hunting it though as it is near impossible to find a downed hog in there and the guys don't want me leaving them in the wheat. Great video as usual. Funny how those hogs can sneak up on you sometimes. Makes the stalk really easy when that happens.

I say you hit 'em with everything but the kitchen sink~!~

Sometimes they require additional encouragement to die - a good time to look into .50 cal ???

cheers

Yeah, I rather doubt that those two will be back. The vultures and coyotes are probably setting up a monument in your likeness.

hetman, the oats field is only 29 acres and the property itself is 1200+. Most of that is hilly terrain with lots of trees and interspersed with little meadows. There could be escaped Japanese POWs from WWII living out there and nobody would know it. We drove through a big chunk of it and saw sporadic sign of hogs, mostly singular tracks here and there. Aside from one wallow, nothing looked to be a bedding area, rooting area, or anything to really aggregate the hogs away from the oats field.

The farmer and his ranch hand have both reported seeing groups of hogs when they have been out on property tending cattle. None of the sign we saw looked like it could be from groups, but lots could be hidden out in the woods. Given the amount of cover and size of the property, I doubt we can do much to keep the population down, so much as we can help keep them off the oats.

There is no saving a few, LOL. We will never see a bunch of them!
