With another scorcher predicted today, the She-Wolf and I were out just after sun-up debating the clearing of more brush east of the house when my gal spotted movement a couple hundred yards to the south. Sure enough, a handful of hogs were moving west to east just the other side of the house pasture fence.

Handing Jane my coffee cup, I hopped the fence into the yard and went inside to grab my old Sako AI Varmint in .223 from the rack. It stays loaded for the occasional coyote sighting but would do well for this 200ish yard shot. Stepping back outside by the pool, I stepped around Jane's tomatoes and peppers and took a rest over a big ceramic planter. When one of the hogs gave me a clear shot, I sent a 50 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip downrange. The crack of the little rifle was followed by the satisfying "whump" of the bullet and I watched the hog drop to the shot.

Nothing huge; a 1/2 grown boar with a tiny hole centered in his left shoulder. So no matter how the rest of the day goes, it started out in the plus column!

Haha, gotta love that. An accurate rifle and good bullet placement usually does the trick. Resting on the wife's ceramic planter is a bonus.

Yeah, if she plants anything in that I'm gonna have to find another rest!
