The hunt was in OK.
My buddy who was shooting the LeverEvolution killed three hogs.

The first hog was in the run at a distance between 50-60 yards. He fired twice missing once and landing one in teh chest. The hog traveled about 25 yards and fell dead. I don't remember what happend with the second hog. The third hog was shot at 90 yards also on the run. It was a gut shot and passed completely through. It did require and follow up shot.

I killed two hogs. The first hog was shot at a distance of about 15-20 yard. The hog was slightly quartering towards me. I shot between the neck and shoulder blade. The hog traveled about 20 yards and fell dead. My second hog (seen in the picture) was shot at about 20-25 yards. I placed the sights behind the ear and touched the trigger. The round was low but it did not matter. That hog did not move. Just a quiver and fell where it stood.

Tell us more about the hunt, and if it was with an outfitter, please share the info. Great pictures.
If anyone else needs an extra hunter to fill out a group for Oklahoma hog hunt. I am listening.

Located in Tulsa area.

Thanks for sharing

Here is a link to the outfitter. http://www.sandrockhillshunting.com/

His name was Mike and he was a dang nice guy. The property that we hunted I doubt will still be available. As with most nice things they go away with divorce. Mike has tons of acreage to hunt and dogs to use if you want to use them. He also seemed very knowledgeable about deer and antler growth. He has deer, hogs, and turkey. He also has some exotics but they were too tame for my taste.

There were 5 of us that had deployed together that went on this trip. One of those "we should go hunting together when we get back" kind of things. Between the five of us, 12 adult hogs were killed.

Most of the shots were at running hogs; we were not using hounds. It was a high fence outfit, but those hogs were on edge the entire time. I guess living in a box where folks try to kill you makes a fella "edgy."

We stayed in a nice single wide trailer with 6 twin beds and one full bed. It also had two bathrooms/showers. The trailer was equipted with a stove, mirco-wave, fridge, clothes washer/dryer, and dish washer. Cable T.V. was also available.

We slept in late and ate our breakfast before heading out. Most of the time we made it to the field between 9:30 and 10:30 and that was just fine with me. There was no need to get up early: high fence hogs can’t travel far. We would make a few kills and return to the trailer for lunch and a nap. The afternoon would find us back in the field hunting. Evening would fall and force us back to the trailer where supper was awaiting to be fixed and coolers of beer beckoned.

Our beds would wait for us till late in the night. We would sleep in and eat breakfast then start again. It was a 3 day hunt, but we were done in two.

Timber is that what you were looking for?
