Went stalking around 9 am on Sunday after seeing a big boar the evening before, and after getting deep, deep into the thickness and turning myself around in circles, I finally came up on a sow with piglets in some thick briar. She of course smelled me and took off, so I chased them down and tried to cut them off to get a shot with my 00.
After thinking they had me beat, I headed back in the direction I came from and they crossed right in front of me after 20 yards or so. This was one of the biggest sows I've ever seen in person, and she took off running when she saw me, but not before I peppered her with some buckshot. Her little ones weren't so lucky and I even tagged one with the Glock before it was all over.
I skinned them whole and am going to have some pulled pork tacos this week
I sure hope their mom dies before she can breed again...they've torn up our feeders so bad!
They're even trying to dig up the posts we set in the ground around our feeders...
