Landowner called and said hogs had rooted up part of a winter wheat field and was going to replant damaged areas, but was afraid the hogs would root up the seed. So, I went and camped out on the property and waited.

Nine hogs down, ranging in size from 135 to 270 lbs. It got a little exciting for me when the hogs were running by me, both in front and in back of me. I don't like them that close and I don't like them that close behind me, LOL.

That was some great shooting and excitement. Too bad Ben wasn't with you, y'all could have put a real hurt on that big sounder.

Good job. It does look like a lot of fun.

Lots of "pulled pork" and a bit of excitement as well! Good shooting; well done; I bet your landowner is very happy with your score!!

Thanks! I missed having Ben there as well. We have schedules that just aren't lining up right now. Things should calm down in a week or so.

I got a call from the landowner's partner...who picked up all of the hogs and moved them to a bone yard. Despite the fact that it was a bunch of work, he was hugely pleased the hogs didn't get to do much more damage.

He said if I keep killing them, he will keep collecting them. I am fine with that. clap

Heart-Girth measurement...

https://www.asi.k-state.edu/doc/swine-day-2002/heartgirthpg166.pdf

I use a shortcut method that requires less math and basically rounds off the results nicely.
Heart Girth in Inches X 10 - 200 = Weight in Pounds

So 37" would be 170 lbs. 40" is 200 lbs.

Those were some large hogs in that sounder. Nice work taking 'em out!

Very productive outing. Good job.

Land owner should be pleased with that.

Just like Jesus, sometimes you gotta kill some hogs.
