As the title says, I was out this afternoon trying to get a legal buck to wander by my feeder and the only thing that showed up was this big (200-220 lb) boar. I was watching a few squirrels feasting on the corn that had recently been scattered by the spinner plate when they scattered. I watched one run about 50 yds non-stop and wondered what got him so upset. When I looked back at the feeder a huge lone boar was making his approach the the area. While getting my rifle set up on the window sill, my sling swivel made a little tinkling sound that what was almost imperceptible, except to the boar. He froze and i could tell by his body language that he wasn't going to hang around long, so I got on him and as he was making an exit from the area, he paused once for a second too long. A single Nosler Accubond 125 gr from a Tac 30 made him lay down for a nap.

I'm in the same boat. I've hunted more this year than most and hogs are all I see. I've killed 5 with only one under 200 lbs. I see lots of deer but nothing that is of age and size I want to take. They are fun to shoot but work to drag off.

Positive thinking may not solve all your problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

At least you have something to show for your effort.
Nice hog!
