Default First hog of 2010 for me

For the last two years I've shot a hog in November, and then had zero luck through December, January, February, and most of March. Despite my efforts to break my winter jinx, this season turned out exactly the same. I made trips to my hunting area almost every week since the first of the year, but kept coming home empty-handed. Twice I saw a hog or two or three, but always on a neighbor's property where I don't have permission to hunt. Finally I managed to snag one, a sow that we estimated to weigh between 125-150 Lbs.

It was just past sundown on 19 March, the last official day of winter, when I spotted this hog and a couple of smaller ones through my binoculars across a pasture. The wind was favorable and fairly strong, so I was able to drive part way along the fence line behind a group of trees until I was maybe 200 yards from my target. I put a bush between us and began stalking her. She moved around so I shifted and placed a lone cow in front of me for a screen. As I approached, the cow got nervous and wandered off, so I simply crouched and crept slowly closer. It was now getting near the end of civil twilight, and with the wind still strong in my face I figured the hog would be unlikely to notice me. I got to within 70 yards and figured that was close enough. I knelt down, shot, and she went straight down. She kicked a couple of times and then simply stopped moving. I watched long enough to be certain that she wouldn't get up, then I walked back across the pasture and put my rifle up. I grabbed a pair of gloves, walked back to where the hog lay, and spent the next half-hour dragging her carcass to the fence where I'd parked the truck. Next time I should think about shooting one closer to a gate, maybe. The property owner and his 12-year old son came out and helped me hoist her into the back of the truck, and then we strung her up and set to work. I split the meat with the landowner, who is a long-time friend, so we each now have at least 30-40 Lbs. of hog meat in our freezers.



I found the bullet. It's a Winchester 150 grain Power-Point. I was using my relatively new Browning A-Bolt II .308, and it certainly made an impression on the hog.

I had forgotten about this little Spanish Goat I took with a recurve & wood arrow back in 1968. 6 of us Bowhunted a preserve that was being closed down & you could shoot anything for $40 or maybe $50. I think it was like 500 acres.
Anyway, the 6 of us hunted 2 days & took 2 goats & 2 Hogs.
Wood Arrows & Recurves.
Hogs were mean buggers-my brother shot one & it charged him & another one of our buddies who put him down on the 3rd hit. Another Hog chased one of the other guys until my brother shot him as they both went running by. It was crazy & of course, we were all in our 20s then so that made it crazier.
