I was able to go to my lease last weekend and had a really good hunt. Shot dove in the afternoon and when the sun was setting I switched gears to try and get a good roasting pig. I set all evening was was about to call it a night when a group of pigs came in to the feeder. They all were 200 pounders except for this one small boar. He finally gave me a clean shot and I punched his ticket under the feeder. He was taken with a .308 143gr hollow point at 115 yards. It turned out to be bigger than I wanted at about 80 lbs, but I went ahead and processed it.

Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

It's funny how you get ground shrinkage with deer and I usually get ground increase in size with hogs that i want to eat. They almost always are bigger than I think they are when i shoot.
