Had an interesting start to the weekend Friday evening. Shoot 3 boars with 2 different rifles in about 10 minutes. Drug the Rem 700 300BLK with AAC Cyclone to the blind and brought my Tikka 223 with Gemtech Coyote along just in case. After the recent heavy rains the creek to the south had quite a bit of flow and I didn't anticipate the hogs crossing it, but they did.
Had a big sounder come in around 7, and I started to pick out the boars. Dropped a nice two tone boar at around 140yards with the Barnes 110gr load, instant death. The rest of the sounder disbanded but ran towards me. I put the heavy Remington down and grabbed the much lighter Tikka to see if I just sneak up on some of the others. I hand not left the blind when a reddish brown boar walked out 15 yards from me, hit him in the face with a 75gr Match BTHP and he didn't like it too much. As soon as I shot I noticed a hog to my right take off running about 50yards away. I hit him at an diagonal angle in the vitals with the 223 but it didn't drop. I would image the Barnes would have been much better but had no time to switch guns. Never found that last hog, but didn't try to hard.
Went back to the same area Saturday night and the hogs had gotten a little more skittish and came in much later. They came in a bit more cautious until the found some soybeans I left for them. Once they started chowing down they ignored me. Dropped the only hog I could confirm as a boar at 54 yards with the 223 and 75gr load. Hit it right in the face and bang flopped it.
