Default Hog Hunting Trip w/ pics

Here are the pics from our trip to Texas last weekend. 9 of us got 10 hogs. They ranged in size from 54 lbs to 445 lbs. We had a great time.

Me and my friends pigs. Mine is the smaller one of the left.[X(]



This is my bigger pig the second day...weighed 115 lbs.

Alright, good job, but I know there's more to the story than that. What about cost and the actual hunt? And don't leave nothing out.

Ok well here's a full story on both hunts.

The first pig was taken Friday night. Had several groups of pigs coming in throughout the afternoon but none that presented a decent shot. About 6:15 a group of 5 nice size hogs came in. They stood out about 25 yds but it seemed a little farther as it was getting kinda dark. My first shot I missed over the back of a nice 125 lb hog. They ran off but one circled back around to about 15 yds. I hit him pretty good and he ran about 60 yds.

The second hog was taken on saturday night. Me and my friend hunted a buddy stand with the intent to get some video footage. After talking for a few minutes when we first sat down, we decided to instead try to get a double as they usually come in in bigger groups. About the same time, around 6:30 about 25 little hogs under 25 lbs came in and started eating. About 6 nicer sized hogs were hanging back in the brush. As they started to make there way in, I got ready. They worked towards us, stopping every 5 steps or so and looking around. Finally they got in and started eating. I drew and heart shot the biggest one in the bunch at 15 yds. She ran about 30 yds. My friend didn't get a chance to make it a double because there was not another hog quite big enough that he wanted to take.

Equipment
Bowtech Liberty
Gold Tip XT hunters
Magnus Stingers

Those stingers sure put a hurting on them pigs. It was my first time using them and I think they will be in my quiver next fall.

There you go guys a full story of each hunt.
