We got 10 more hogs this weekend! Thats 58 hogs in 3 weekend hunts. I should have had more but my aim was terrible this weekend. The one below I had to shoot 4 times with the 45-70 before he stopped getting up! :eek: You can see the top three shots then the last kill shot is a few inches lower. Knoked him over every time he just kept getting up. There was a hole you could set a softball in. Was shooting 405 grain rem sp at 1400fps.

How far away was the hog? Irregardless that is some really good shooting!

How were you set up for the shot? Blind?

Congrats

I live in Dallas but we are hitting the hogs out by Big Sandy. We dont use blinds we look for activity and then walk for them. We mostly hunt in the day. The first shot on this one was at 50 yards then he ran another 50 or so before I hit him again. I hit a big sow at 170 yards running on my 4th shot that was the longest shot. Most where within 100 yards.

I think you might be the first legitimate need for the extended mag tube! LOL.

Still blown away by the accuracy. I would post that picture on my mantle.
