Pig_Popper accompanied me down to Bosque County this week to see about trying to shoot some hogs off of the "hog eradication station" we set up at the north end of the property after the harvest of the oats. The feeder had been set up for two weeks. Last week, I had some game cam images of hogs, but no hogs showed up while I was there. This week, they showed up, a full 80 minutes before the feeder was due to go off and during daylight! As you can see after the first shot, Ben has a malfunction and so I picked up his wounded hog as it took off. I hate tracking wounded hogs, particularly in areas I don't know well. After looking at the carnage, I don't think his hog would have gone very far at all, but at there was no way to know that at the time.

The pond (or tank) we have set up in doesn't off much time for follow-up shots, but had things gone differently, I think we might have picked up 2 or 3 more hogs, particularly given that we have a huge backstop behind the hogs to stop errant shots. I really like this new location.

When no more hogs materialized, we moved on to the harvested field where I shot 9 hogs last week, in hopes we would see more hogs. We saw deer and coyotes and dispatched 2 coyotes. Ben did a dandy job patiently waiting on a safe shot on the first coyote despite the fact it had started increasing its distance from us. I really liked how when I asked if he could take it (at an unknown distance that turned out to be 220 yards), he did not hesitate with his reply that he could...and did.

Ah the dreaded malfunction ! realmad

The side by side video tells the tale on what a jam will do for a hunt, I not only
lost sight of the pig I shot but apparently I just stared at rocks for 15 seconds while you finished that hog off.

6 weeks ago I was telling DNS how this Grendel is running like a sewing machine, like a hot knife through butter, and wouldnít you know Iíve had more jams the last three times out for no real apparent reason not to mention a stuck ejector.

Maybe I ought to turn to the Dark Side - - - 308 AR and give Ole Gren a rest

For the first time all season the oats field was a bust on hogs, it was nice that we struck down two coyotes - one of which was in the vicinity of a deer fawn.

Great job on the video , I like the side by side view - Iíll try to make my side of the screen resemble actual hunting next go around hammer
