my friend hunted last Thursday in the downpour and was rewarded with his biggest hog to date
I've taken him on his first hog hunt last July (where he shot 150 lb with an AK-74 ) and he's hooked ever since.
I told him that big hogs don't mind the rain, love the rain and that he should hunt in the rain if possible
Well, that saying must have been etched in cerebral stem, i've never seen him missed hunting in the rain
He sat for 2 hrs in the downpour, open platform, with only a blanket covering his Tikka .308 and ATN XSight II
at dark 2145 lone boar came out circling the pen but would not enter
this went on for a while until he can't handle it anymore and lined up for a shot in the head
he was weighed on a Cabelas scale with his head still touching the ground
he's probably one of the 2 biggest hogs harvested on my place
i would like to hear some guesses on his weight, just by looking at this picture.
I inquired because I guessed wrong as well
