PostSubject: Hogs At New Feeder   Hogs At New Feeder EmptyJanuary 1st 2019, 10:34 am

Hung this feeder at our property north  of Elmore City a couple weeks ago.   Deer come in the morning and hogs in the evening.  We have a big hog problem there now.   Will sit in a nearby stand and pop some pigs with a Ruger 10/.22.  

Date is wrong time is right.

Lots of little piggies! What part is that feeder set up in? Almost looks like where I used that tower stand.

Oh okay. That tree branch reminds me of that spot I used to sit in. Does that area get colder than near Lawton?

Coons are ravenous eaters. Two coons eat as much corn as a big hog. One morning i watched a coon eat corn for 47 minutes. Had enough of that and busted his butt. That coon weighed 25-30 pounds.

The winter weather here is too warm for good fur.

I wont be able to get good fur myself my lease is only about 25 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. I have pics of mine sucking up the corn like a vacuum cleaner I know what you mean about them eating as much as a hog.

This is interesting guys, had no idea they were that big a problem. Have never shot or been around these guys, man you folks have lots of game where your at.  

I'm stuck with elk, mule & white tails, antelope, turkey and most small game (I'll just have to be happy with what's available).....   tongue

PostSubject: Re: Hogs At New Feeder   Hogs At New Feeder EmptyJanuary 7th 2019, 2:12 pm

Went to my lease yesterday afternoon to shoot a pig for the barbecue. Waiting on something to show up a nice buck stuck his head out of the brush. I got my sight on his neck and started to squeeze off a shot and just as I shot a pig ran out of the brush and the buck jumped. i didnt miss completelyHogs At New Feeder Antler10 but I sure did give him one hell of a headache shot a big part of his left antler off. I was using my 45/70 Guide gun and the antler flew way up in the air ,poor buck ran out of there but sure ran like he was drunk

PostSubject: Re: Hogs At New Feeder   Hogs At New Feeder EmptyJanuary 7th 2019, 8:05 pm

Went to our property north of Elmore City yesterday. Saw a couple does with fawns and a sounder of about 20 hogs, never got a shot. Filled the feeders and checked the game cameras.

Checked the zero of a .300 Win Mag and my Ruger No 1 in 9.3x62. The .300 shot so so but the 9.3 put three 250 grain Nosler Accubond bullets in a 2" group at 225 yards. The 9.3 will hunt elk on 23, 24 and 25 January.
