On one of the properties I hunt, I have a huge field of view from a ridge top and can seen well into the neighbor's properties on two sides, both occupied by the same guy. He has hogs. He regularly has hogs. He knows he has hogs. He does not want crossing the fence to go after his hogs for any reason. I respect his wishes, but that does little ease my frustration.
Right now, he has some BIG hogs that I have seen on multiple nights including two nights this week. The property line is 750 yards from my observation point and on Tuesday I hiked out that way and waited for the hogs to venture over to my side of the fence. These never did. On several occasions in the past, patience has paid off and the hogs cross over to my side, but not recently.
However, last night was not without success. I came across a lone boar in a low spot on another property and after I finally got him identified as a hog, was able to make a successful stalk on him despite the wind blowing right towards him. The ELD-M 130 gr. bullet Chad at Custom Reloads of Dallas loaded for me worked very well.
