Picked up a tikka t3 on a trade with redgun today. Got it sighted in and took it afield tonight after some coyotes and hogs. Go figure when one is after varmints we see more deer than anything, but luckily we got a shot opportunity at a male yote and a boar and went 100% with the new gun. Cole, huntaddict, made a quick kill on the coyote which was mingling with a heard of cattle, and then I had my opportunity when a boar came trotting out at 80 yards. He never stopped, but was at a mild enough pace to ensure good shot placement. This pics say the rest.

Thanks, and to go ahead and add a trade report, REDGUN was a very stand up and nice guy to meet up with and make a deal.

I'm curious to hear people's guesstimates on the hogs weight. I know that is usually a good pass time for everyone. Lol. Anyone have an estimate?

He's a biggun for sure, but I dont think he'll make three bills. I'll say 275

I have no answer, we didn't weigh him, but I have killed hundreds of hogs and this one was one of the bigger ones. The pic doesn't do justice IMO, he was dense! Idk if he was 300 for sure, don't really care about the number, but I dont think it is far fetched that he could have been and possibly a little change. Heck he had 15 pounds of mud dried on him! I am glad I used a rifle and not the bow on this one. Not sure if I would have liked the tracking job after dark! Yet as I say that I am getting ready for a late night archery hunt to clear out the junk from my feeder in Montalba and I have getting pics of some pigs on roids, so hopefully more pics to follow...
