Shot a buck on the river yesterday. I had a long walk to him, 269 yards. It took me a few minutes to gather up my pack and a few other things from my prone position in the weeds. I made my way to him and as I was kneeling down, getting ready to tag my deer, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. About 15-20 hogs right out in the open with me on the river bed, walking towards me. I've killed more hogs than I can count, but never been this close, right out in the open at about 30 yards. I was in full camo, still had my hood and everything on. I assume they had no idea what I was, just something crawling around on the ground just like them. I just knew if I moved they'd spook, but I got down on my gun which was resting up on my bipod and shot the biggest one right over my deer. I shoot a Rem. 5R Milspec, Hornady SST, 165 gr. The buck was drt, high shoulder slightly quartering away. The hog was close, like 30 yards. Shot was quick, high on the shoulder but back a little. This is one of the few hogs that wasn't dead on the spot with this bullet, but only made 15 or so yards into the bushes.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Good work! And you're right: they are one of the most unpredictable animals I've ever hunted!
