Last weekend went public with my bow and walked up on a sleeping sounder I didnt see. Ended up crouched in a 5 yard stare down with a young boar and a huge sow. Ended in a draw. Later went to the farm and drove up on a sounder by the barn. They took off before I could stop and level on them.

Back out at the farm this evening. Now the farm I hunt is 70 acres on the edge of suburbia. The north 40 acres is all pasture. The south 30 has the 2 houses, some pecans, oaks, pasture, and a creek bottom. To the east is a property about 250 yards wide and full length, maybe 35 acres total. I usually dont like to hunt with a north wind because it blows my scent to the creek where they travel. It's about 6 and I unload and start walking to the east fenceline and a boar comes in from the adjacent property along the S. Fenceline. He crosses my scent path from the north wind and I never get a shot. I continue to the east fenceline and I see a sounder next door. I watch as the move north, upwind of me. They travel north feeding, going 400 yards or so before I lose them as I follow along the property line. There are houses further east, and I suspect they may move into the north 40 pasture at some point. I go back south and set, watching my feeder by the treeline. I occasionally hear squealing from my sounder, and periodically check to see if they've crossed over.

After 2+ hours they're still in the same place, so I move north past them and hit them with my light and the head away and back south. I'm thinking they may swing around back to the farm, so I move quickly back south to the south fenceline. I hear them on the next property, so I move south and back east to the property line, watching north. I see some dark figures cross over and light them up. DRT. Note the fenceline in one of the pics.

Well done and I like the narrative you gave as it gives us a better picture of exactly what you did. Although I'm 78 YO a friend has gotten me interested in spot and stalking piggies.

Good story and nice job on the boar. Keep at them, you only have thousands left to kill.

Strong work! Looks like decent eating too if you can haul em off.


What’s your weapon, and light, and optic?
