    Going hog huntin' tonight at my new place. Lots of sign everywhere.

    The question is..... .223 or .308? Hmmm decisions, decisions.

    How close will you be to them? ;)

    Rather have ENOUGH gun, than "dang, I wish that was a better shot" :eek:

    Sounds like fun though - make sure to post pics

    Should be a shot of no longer than 150 yards. I know most of the pigs are smaller 30 or 40 pounders, where the .223 should be fine. But, in the event of Boss Hog coming along and I'm undergunned :mad:.....and I've seen trace of a Boss Hog, so I better take the SOCOM just in case of a big one and aim for the head if I'm gonna shoot a little one....because the little ones, we'll eat.

    Not tonight. Stayed until dark, just got back. Couldn't see any more. LOTS of deer, though. Will try again tomorrow night I hope.

    That lil piggy didn't go anywhere but splat!


    Better luck next time with the bacon shopping lonyeager. At least, you know you will have plenty of lil jaywalkers to pop this winter; remember, a dead deer makes for happy cars. :)

    We're a little outside Carbon, Eastland County, Texas. Ours come in lots of colors...... I cant find any pics of the 30+ hogs we've had in there. They come in white, brown, black, brindle, and about and color scheme you can think of.
