I am in Covid quarantine so I went out by myself the other night. Called a coyote up with my Carver mouth call and shot her. While I was loading stuff back up in the truck I saw a lone pig coming out across the field, cutting through the cows.
I grabbed my tripod and went on the stalk. Got within 120 yards or so but couldn't move closer because of a fence. It was a boar about 175 lb or so. Shot him with the Grendel and the old Sierra 85 HP. He went straight down.https://youtu.be/IEnghj4Ye5o
When I got back to the truck I saw a small sounder all the way across the field full of cows. I put the Hogster in my roof mount, connected to a video screen on my dash. I went lights out and drove as close as I could but with cows in the field that wasn't very close. Had to make a hard stalk weaving between cows and being very careful of a wind that was barely OK for what I had to do. I got within 70 yards and had to stop, but they were feeding closer and I let them come a bit more.
I opened up and dropped a very pregnant mama on the spot. I had to shoot very slow and deliberate because of cows in the background. That is why I shoot frangible varmint bullets on pigs though. I don't like bullet bounce at night. Ended up with 4 out of that batch. Sow 225+, and 3 of the 50-60 lb half grown pigs from her last litter.
5 pigs and a coyote on a solo hunt. Worked out pretty good and I got a good bullet test in for the 85 HP.https://youtu.be/uAvKRFAhEfc
