5 down and out of the breeding pool!

5 down and out of the breeding pool! - 02/19/19 09:52 PM

I set up by one of the feeders before dawn yesterday to see if I could ambush a sounder that was appearing regularly on the game cam. Sure enough right at first light they came thundering in and started vacuuming up corn. I picked out the biggest one and she went down hard. The rest scattered. Then the little black one came back, checked out the dead one and began eating corn again. I was about to send him to Hog Heaven when the balance of the sounder arrived. I shot another, DRT. Instead of running off, the remaining 3 started running around, squealing like mad. I knocked two of them down, but that little black dude was streaking around so fast, changing directions, jumping over hog bodies, I couldn't get a clean shot at him. I just tried to keep him close to being in my crosshairs; he finally stopped and off he went to HH. Two of the larger hogs needed a quality assurance shot, so I used my 9mm pistol at point blank range to arrange their passage. The whole episode didn't last much more than 5 minutes, but it was wild and crazy (and fun!).
