    I was deer hunting yesterday.The weather was cold and windy,so I didn't figure anything would be moving around early,and nothing was.
    Around noon,I decided to move my ground blind.I had it set-up for archery season,and so I moved it back up around the barn.

    The wind died down when the sun was setting,and I figured it was going to be a good time for something to start moving around. I'd been setting in the blind for a couple hours,and was looking out one of the side windows watching a bunch of ducks feeding in a pond. I turned around,looking towards the feeder,and about 15 yards in front of me this big boar came walking across towards the feeder.
    Something spooked him,and he ran back the same way he came in. I figured he would travel down a tree line that comes out on the west side of the feeder,and about 5 minutes later,here he came. He was still acting pretty spooked,and started walking towards a big bush about 20 yards north of the feeder.
    I picked up the DPMS LR-260,and as soon as he came around the bush,I dropped him like a rock!
    He's around 250 lbs!

    We use the big boars for coyote bait,I like to eat the smaller ones,they taste a lot better!
