Made the last trip of the season for one last day of hunting. My brother hunted with me this morning before he had to head home. I stayed and hunted this evening for one last hunt. I had a small group of bucks come in early around 3 and then nothing until around 5.

I had one doe step out that had an injured right front leg but I didnít want to chance a shot at 200 yards with the wind gusting so bad and possibly wounding her even more. Just before dark I could hear hogs squealing but they never showed. It started to get too dark to see with the binos so I packed up for one last walk to the truck.

Just as I got to my North feeder I stopped briefly and could hear movement in the brush. I continued to walk before stopping again and this time I could hear pigs as they made their way to a water trough in my area. I got behind a big oak and got within about 30 yards of them. I dialed the scope down and got one in my sights and scanned the trough for a bigger one.

A large sow was making her way into the road so I clicked off the safety and quickly sent a round her way. As the muzzle flashed and the other hogs ran off then began to growl I gathered my things and walked to where she was standing. Blood everywhere and a quick 20 yard track this sow ended my 2017-18 hunting season with a bang!!!

It's not how you fall, It's how you get up.

Good way to go out! Nice looking rifle.


Just like Jesus, sometimes you gotta kill some hogs.

Gotta love walking up to the last spot they were standing and seeing a blood trail like that!

A heck of a lot better than seeing nothing and feeling that knot in your stomach like "man I hope I made a good shot" rofl Exit blew out left shoulder and she made a half moon about 25 yards spraying blood everywhere grin

Well done, and a truly great way to end the hunting season! Now you can focus on hogs only until November!!
