Went out hog hunting. Saw hogs. Didn't manage to shoot any.
I've always known that looking through a thermal sight can give a false perspective of distance. I didn't know I'd make such a big error, though
Spotted some hogs that I though were about 80-90 yards away. Looking later at Google Maps I learned they were really 275 yards distant. No wonder I didn't hit any of them, and they didn't even run off that quickly. They just trotted away at a brisk pace. I'm assuming they were pretty large, and hopefully I'll get another shot at them soon. Live and learn

The outing wasn't a total loss, though. I did manage to shoot a rather large raccoon.

You can never have too much ammo unless you're swimming.

thank you for doing your part up

imagine how much corn that thing ate out of somebody's feeder,
or how many turkey eggs it ate or would eat, or quail, etc.

I think they are pretty, had three as a pet in my life. But man they can sure tear up a feeder in a hurry. I shot two this last year and trapped one more.
