Maybe it is because I got enough of the "tactical" hunting here, but that seems like a little overkill for some feral hogs



Back from Afghanistan and looking to catch up on the hunting I missed.

That was a good read. I have always wanted to try the thermal hunts but I dont think I'm very big on the whole rambo get up though.

It's a darn shame the pigs can't shoot back. Makes it more interesting that way.



I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

About as long as you have big guy. Just saying. Don't gotta dress up like that to shoot a pig with a rifle. Boys and their toys. Just sayin'.

IMO, taking pot shots at the way other folks enjoy their 2nd amendment rights does none of us any good.

What they are doing is entirely legal, they are performing a service for landowners, some entrepreneurs are making a little money and contributing to the economy. Sounds like a win-win all the way around.

PETA types make comments like yours regarding "regular" hunters. Just seems to me that we ought to be supporting each other, not making fun.

If you can't have a little fun then you're not doing it right. Heck, I would go shoot them with the thermals, or NV, but I might dress a little different. It's all good.

Talked to these guys at the show in FT Worth yesterday and I am thinking about doing it. Sounds like fun for one night.
