My friend Shawn invited me out at the last minute to hunt a new property. He checked the game cam. earlier that day and had a small sounder constantly come in.

Got there at 5 pm stayed til about 5:30 a.m. when our heater was just about to go out. We were gonna pack out. This boar, which had never been seen before, rolled on in at the last minute.

At 56 yards Shawn counted down. We shot almost simultaneously. Bacon made. My gosh it got cold but after shooting this hog it was all worth it!
Yes, mine was the head shot. :D

Thats a good one for sure. I'll be after 4-6 of that sizewd ones this morning in about 45 minutes. They have also been hitting my feeders pretty regularily.

I had one dead to rights yesterday morning around 9:45 when we went out to check the cards in the cameras, but the fellow leasing the place has black cows and I had a big black spot in my scope in the brush from about 60 yards, I knew in my mind it was a hog, but I had to hold off. I tried to ease up through a fence and get closer, but when I got through the fence and 4' grass growing in a small ditch, he was gone.

Always better to err on the safe side rather than have to buy a high dollar registered cow for sure. I'm going to get an earlier start today and see what I can do with him....
