Also known as wild boar grin

I spotted two hogs south of me around 500yds I had the wind coming out of the east so it was good for a stalk. When I finally closed in it ended up being a group of 12 or more but I wanted to get closer which was tough because stepping on that dry dead coastal was like walking on glass, I got in around 60yds and one of them got spooked they locked up and that's when I decided to let them have it. Next thing you know that 12 was more like 20 and they where flying right next to me some where so close I couldn't find them with the thermal I could actually see them with my naked eye, I dropped two immediately and dropped a third when I looked behind me. I know I hit a fourth one because I saw his gut trail but I never could find it. I went back for the quad and decided to make another lap and when I finally got back to the pigs about 20-30min later one of my pigs decided he wasn't gonna get in the pic, this right here shows just how tough these bastards are I should of double tapped his ---. I looked around in the tree line but no trail and no hog just blood on the ground where he laid, for now on I'm personally walking up to them and making sure they're down for good! After the other two got gutted I found 11 embryo's so this hunt resulted in 13 kills cheers.

rifle good shootin!

Be careful stalking in close like that, I did it once and got my feet taken out from under me by a BIG sow. I'm lucky it wasn't a big boar or things might have gotten a lot bloodier. scared
