Was a great day...the pigs are back
With all the rain we've had recently, I expected that the pigs would come back, and they did exactly that. Had about 8 of them come out on my hay field at approx 250 to 275 yards. I just can't find the words to tell you how happy I was. It wasn't far enough to bother with the rangefinder, so I took the old 220 Swift and parked the first one right behind the shoulder of the biggest pig and then tracked the rest of them as they took off in a medium trot. Missed with second shot and hit soundly with third shot. Life is good. And when I went to gaze at the recently deceased, there were about 5 does standing in the hay field. All that shooting and none of them ran off. Maybe my place has what you might call low pressure hunting. Nobody but me doing any shooting. And I walked back to the house for wine and steak. I sure like being retired....
