i went out to check one of our game cameras and saw this sow about 700 yards away. the only gun in the truck was my dads 30-30 and he was at work so he couldn’t bring me any other gun. i had never worked or shot a 30-30 so i facetimed him so he could tell me just how to work it. once he explained i started walking. once i got about 100 yards from her i went ahead and took my shot!

Outstanding, the dog looks like he is claiming the kill.

It's been said that the 30-30 had put more animals down than any other caliber. I'm not sure if that's true but it's my 'go to' and gets more action than any other rifle in my safe.

Atta Girl!

Excellent solution to the situation at hand. Very smart of you.

'Adapt and Overcome'.

You learned very quickly to use what was at hand (albeit requiring a phone call). Heck of a shot too.

My hat is off to you.

Nice Job! I really like to hunt with my leverguns. Might even break out the big stick (Marlin 1895G) again this year.

I asked more about the gun when my dad got out there since it made such an impact at 100 yards, i can post a better pic of the pig closer up to the shot. what looked like the exit wound was this entrance and that amazed me!

The hardest and most frustrating thing was learning how to put a lever action on safety over facetime! roflmao

Walk toward the light Pig!

Good Job. Lever action .30-30s never really go out of style and they still work very well.

Just my .02,
