Out at my usual spot on a beautiful day in mid-April. My feeder had quit working, but I got that figured out (two dead batteries) so I decided I would wait around and see if any hogs would show. Around 9:30PM I heard what sounded like something snorting. There were cattle in the area, but I'd watched them settle down behind me (to the east) a few hundred yards away. I thought maybe they were moving again, so I got up to check on the noise. I walked around a Youpon bush that I used as camouflage, and spotted a dozen hogs heading my way. They were coming from the downwind direction, so I wasn't expecting to see anything there. I knew I wouldn't have much time before they detected my scent. I moved to a new position quickly, took aim, and nailed a 145# boar just about directly between the eyes.

Not a lot of actual hog video. I had to set up and shoot quickly. I barely had time to turn on the video recorder.



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

Good shot, you were about to be busted! I did the eyeball thing to a yote with a head shot about 2 weeks ago. Bullet pressure behind the eyeballs must get pretty intense. smile

Nice one. Hate when you have a field of view full of hogs and something goes awry...
