Shot three last night. One nearly ran me over. Full out run it missed me by a foot while I was standing in the field. Don't think it was charging. I was just in the way. Then on the ranch road, a sounder came out of the brush surrounding me. I hit one with the suburban and three ran into the side of it. Field on the edge of our lease had 8 sounders in it just before dark. Easily over 100 hogs. I'll be back into them tonight if I have not run them off the property yet.

No matter how many I take on my property - they keep coming back.

I hit them hard at the beginning of this year... so much so that for the first time since I can remember... I didn't see any hogs appear on the cellular cams for several days. Considering how much I enjoy hog hunting - I got a bit worried that I finally hunted them enough to put a meaningful dent in their population. I am probably one of the few that don't mind hogs on my property as it gives me consistent hunting opportunities throughout the year.

After not seeing them on the cams for a few days, one boar showed up... and then another larger boar... and now two different sounders with babies are showing up. These hogs that moved in must not have had much hunting pressure as they are showing up more during daylight hours.

Felt kind of silly worrying that I had taken too many hogs roflmao

I've seen that cycle many times on my place.

Hit 'em hard and constant, and they go away. Sometimes for months...

I'm in one of those dry spells now. Aside from a couple of boars making the rounds, I've not seen a sounder since deer season was over.

I have faith they'll be back. wink

Sightmark Photon. Not the greatest of what's available, but works well for my purpose and bought it cheap on eBay as an open box return. It's a short range 375 Winchester so all I ever need it the scopes built in IR.

I have the same scope I bought a few years back. I have not had to chance to run it to its full potential. How has yours worked? I want to mount it on a .22LR or .22Mag and do head shots on hogs and coyotes
