After another week working at home it was time to come up and feed the cows. Friday was cold so I figured the hogs would be out. Decided to take the 300BO with the Wraith scope along with the thermal setup. Turned out to be a lucky choice- the whole day was cold and misty so the thermal was pretty washed out.
Before dark a single boar showed up and started wading his way through the mud hole under the feeder, eating away. I waited until he got on the edge of the hole and shot, down he goes then flops around until he almost disappeared from sight. Oh, well- another muddy extrication coming up.
Sat in the box surfing the THF for a while and then decided to take a look out of the north end of the box. Was messing with focusing the new IR source when a bunch of hogs came out under the feeder and started milling around, jostling each other for position. I picked the biggest sow and let go, pig pandemonium ensued but I noticed her running a little distressed so I figured I hit her good. About 45 minutes later another group came out and I shot the closest one and decided to call it a night since I had some mud hole wading coming up. I went and got the 4-wheeler and took the thermal with me and loaded the one laying in the wheat, then started looking around in the woods in the direction I thought she ran. Eventually found her with the thermal- about 50 yards from the feeder in the thick stuff. Dragged her out to the field, then loaded the smaller one and hooked her up to the drag and took them to the boneyard. Went back to the mud hole and yep, it was bad.

Got ahold of the back leg with a rod and slipped the drag on and yanked him out and took him to the others.

Pretty good night, and I’m all set to go back after them tonight.....

A good, if muddy, night indeed!
Looks like you've got ammo for a few more hunts, at least!

Keep After 'Em!


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

Where did you get the hog hammer? I thought it had been discontinued.
