Decided to go out and try to kill a pig this evening. While riding around the King Ranch on a lake edge this guy showed himself right before dark. We managed to get within 50 yards from him and I let my .17hmr do the rest. One shot behind his eye and he was done ( we shot him again with a 222 for safety reasons). I was suprised to see a pig this size fold up from such a small caliber. This is somewhere around the 20th pig I have killed with my .17hmr

nice shooting!! I get a kick out of the guys on here that scream shoulder plates and you gotta have 150grs @ 3000 fps to kill one. Ive killed 2 with my mach 2, and like seeing these tiny guns do the trick

Yea I do too. I would rather shoot them with my .17 or my AR-15.

Good job! Especially with the 17. I love mine and it will definately do the trick, just pick your shots and it's game over!

Thanks guys. We have plenty of pigs down here, we are trying to slow them down a little bit before deer season starts.

Great kill. Have yet to find a hog when I had my 17 with me, but can't wait to get the opportunity.

I thought you had to have mag and that still wouldn't do the trick. Good job on the kill.

nice piggy



A hunt based on only trophies being taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be,time to commune with your inner soul as you share the outdoors with the birds,animals, and fish that live there. -Fred Bear

Im hoping to get a few more like this next weekend, they have been hitting one of my feeders pretty hard right before dark. I probably will leave my .17 at home and pick up the AR
