Shot this boar the Thursday evening before Easter. He showed up in some tall grass behind the feeder just a minute or two before it went off. One of a very fear times when I shot a hog that looked bigger once it hit the ground. With just two of us being there, we used his come-a-long to winch him into the bed of my friend's Mule. You can see the cable wrapped around his leg in the photo.

First animal taken with my Savage Axis Series II .243 (100 grain bullet). Took one shot to bring him down but another at short distance to finish him off.

Did I say I hate hogs?

2 grown men couldn't load a 180 lb hog without a winch?

There was a time when I thought men who said they had a bad back were just lazy and wanted to avoid hard work. Later I learned first-hand the back is a part of the human body that can be damaged for life.

Being about the same age (early 60's), the two of us never considered giving it a try.

IBM had a commercial several decades ago, in which they used the slogan "Machines should work, people should think!"

To my wife's occasional dismay, it has become one of my guiding philosophies in life.


Keep using that come-along!
And, keep after the hogs!

I gave it to the guy who owned the Mule and will see if he kept the skull. He's a local renter who will make the meat go further than anyone I know.

At least you were drinking light beer, that helps on the back too I would think.


Just like Jesus, sometimes you gotta kill some hogs.
