So my mother-in-law called me to help out with a hog problem. I showed up to find that her beautiful backyard was completely trashed by hog damage. Now, my mother-in-law is not against hunting or hunters, she just doesn't like to talk or here about killing animals. But, since the hogs moved in a rooted up her precious yard, she's ready to start hanging hog heads from fence posts! I setup a hog trap with soured corn and was unsuccessful trapping anything. The third night I decided to campout on the back porch to see if anything would show up. Finally, at 10:30 pm, 3 or more hogs started walking up in the tree line on the edge of the yard. I was able to drop the first sow ready away with a headshot before the others darted off back in the woods. Check out all of the damage that was done to this beautiful backyard and the sow that paid the ultimate price..

From the looks of the yard you may need to spend a few more evenings out on the porch.....

You have the perfect set-up to use a AirForce TexanSS airgun. You would have been able to shoot all three hogs without them ever knowing what hit them. I shot one this weekend at the Texas Airgun Show in Mansfield. It is deadly accurate and produces little sound. .457 Caliber producing up to 400 FPE. AirForce TexanSS

Seems like a nifty gun, but I imagine the impact on the first hog will scatter the others.

Children I know we must let them think they are in charge but we are it! The art of manipulating MIL's it just that but it is possible. Keeping the wife happy is truly where it's at!

Nope, they will run off. The Texan SS is still loud enough to spook em, even a Subsonic 22 with a can will run them off. Its the bullet impact I think.
