Finally, I have a property with some hogs on it and not just singles. This is my neighbor's place and it is only 35 acres and they have torn him up pretty well. Despite a mass of acorns on the ground, they are rooting. They may be eating acorns and that would not be a huge problem, but the rooting is. My guess is that they are after grubs and other bugs as they are targeting the hay and hay rings areas pretty heavily, but they are sampling all over the property. There wasn't an area that we went that they had not rooted, at least some small patches.
Pig Popper and I made it out on Saturday after I sighted in new ammo from Custom Reloads of Dallas. I decided to run with the Speer Gold Dot 120s as they required the least correction from my previous zero point. Pig Popper opted for .22 Nosler that screams 55 gr. bullets at 3575 fps. Hogs came out, we both shot and appeared to hit our targets and our targets promptly turned into a wood thicket and we never saw them again despite two separate searches for them that night.
I figured the sounder would not be back the following night. So I returned on Monday. I did not see the sounder Pig Popper and I hit. I saw a much larger sounder and dropped two before the rains really let loose.
