blistering 25mph winds and sand blasting dirt is about as good as the hunting gets. reapir was flawless in 20% humidity. nothing, and i mean NOTHING knows you're closing in. we were invisible, moving about at will and filling our insatiable appetite for killing hogs. and we would need everything in our favor to find and slaughter a ghost herd that had eluded us for the last three hunts. after they gave us the slip last week, they completely wiped out a quarter of a peanut circle. somebody was going to pay... with blood.

i'm using a trijicon mk3 and my bud has a mk2. needless to say, seeing was not a problem. the vid is a compilation of all the stalks and kill shots from the night. first herd got 8. second herd got 9. then i picked off a single out the window.

the ghost herd tends to show up late, gorge themselves and leave quickly. we scoured the countryside until we found their hiding place in a large depression. i wasn't paying attention and let my battery run out late into the night. bud had to take on the ghost herd single handed. he got 3 and we raced around to catch the wounded ones before they got out. a slow moving sow was leading the way on the trail of tears with a brave and loyal escort... right into the jaws of death. 22 recovered for the night.

I loved the spewing pirouette.

They can run, but they can't hide.
One shot is all it should take.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

pretty fun hunt. well worth the total fubar i suffered the next day. got in just in time to go to work the next morning. but no one ever looks back and says... "hey, remember that time i got a great night's sleep". besides, it only hurts for a few days i'm ok now and going back out tonight.

a lot of shots were high and back, lol. could be because sometimes we were both shooting at the same pig. also, sometimes those bullets go through and hit beyond the pig. they're running so fast that by the time they find dirt the pig is well past.

if i could photoshop vids, id make every one a head shot. here is more footage with the sound to give you an idea of how windy it was. when i first setup my tripod, it blew over right into me. i was getting blown around so much that i couldn't even hold on my first shot choice and had to switch during the countdown. but then again, i'm djones so it didn't really matter, rifle
