Got one field of peanuts planted Saturday, so we made a run out Sunday night to see if we could catch the pigs rooting them up. That field had not had any damage yet but we wanted to keep it that way. There weren't any pigs out in the peanuts so we headed a little closer towards the river to see if we could find them. Caught a sounder coming across and hammered them out in some tall wheat before they got to the peanuts. We put a serious hurt on that sounder. Killed all 3 adults (could not find one in the wheat but it went down hard), and worked over the juveniles pretty bad. Found 4 of them but for sure there were more of them out there dead too.
Recovered 6, but pretty sure the real number (conservative) was minimum of 8-9.
We had a hard wind coming into our face as we stalked which really helped out in that tall wheat, it was dang sure loud walking through that stuff though. Shooting those juveniles was like playing whack-a-mole in the wheat. Now you see them, now you don't. Had one of them run between me and my partner, another passed by 10-15 feet away. I nearly fell over once trying to swing the gun fast enough to keep up, shooting off one leg. Pretty crazy stalk and shooting.
