I managed to kill a couple hogs this morning with the 224v but I was shooting at a running line of them and had a few more get away. A new place where the brush is thick and couldn't find the ones that were hit. First one I shot was in the forehead, then the rest took off running. I need practice on running shots, they move faster than it seems! [Linked Image]

Just like Jesus, sometimes you gotta kill some hogs.

We all need to practice more on running shots. It isn't that they are moving faster, but that we are slowing down!

Well done. up I hit one last week and they all started running toward me, angling to the right. I tried to lead and swing through, but I shot over it. bang I did learn that I have way better muscle memory, i.e. faster, with Dad's Marlin 336 than I do with a bolt. Those 336s just point better.

Indeed, it seems like half the running hogs I hit get a bullet in the butt.
I too, obviously, need more practice!

As I read this I imagined myself in your shoes.

My post would have something more along the lines of "smoked 2 on the run!"

You busted two hogs on the run!

And maybe more right? These are just the ones you could recover...
