Me, too. The big ones are just so much easier to shoot!

Here's one in what I call the coyote feeding station, this is the unfortunate reality of being over run with pigs....There's a limit to how many pigs you can give away...But coyotes with full bellys stay out of trouble.

note another .223 wound LOL

Now that's bacon!

I haven't killed any pigs year to date, I suspect that they are here now but haven't been able to get out the last couple of weeks.

I see some that still have the big white stripe, but the majority are red or black, black with tipped hairs being the most common.

Of course the occasional polky dotted.LOL

I'm jealous.

I want to shoot a couple meat hogs with my .54 caliber traditional muzzleloader and a round ball.

They are here in Missouri, but nowhere near where I live. MO Conservation estimates only 5k - 10k in the state - mostly down south.
