TEXAS pigs!


Recommended Posts

Two of my buddies and I drove down to Texas on Saturday, hunted from 8:00 pm till 3:00 am, slept 4 hours, and drove back. Ended up with 25 pigs in hand

What a fun trip.   What part of Texas?  Were y’all hunting on public or private land?

Wild hogs are generally too lean to build up the necessary fat for bacon. I wonder if they’ve got sufficient fat in the jowls? I just love good hog jowl.

Man I would love to do a TX hog trip. Nice job. 

So what equipment were you guys using. Is that NV or Thermal? I have heard that anywhere hogs have had any hunting pressure, you have to night hunt or you never see them.

I run a 308 msr 10 that's had quite a bit of work done to it. The scope is a Trijicon reap ir thermal. The device on the side is a Silencerco radius rangefinder. The suppressor is a Q full Nelson. I shoot 130 TTSXs at 2879fps for hogs and 125 nosler BT for everything else. One of the guys ran a 6.8 with an N-vision 50mm and the other guy was running a blackout with an N-vision 50mm and black tips. One of my buddies is looking at a 338 federal or 8.6 creedmoor for next time.

It’s a Pulsar Trail XP50. I think it will record 4hrs video. I download the videos to my phone via WiFi and an ap. 
 

Gun is an 18” 6.5 Grendel. 66B7E98C-DB58-438E-BECD-2481E1FC4AEE.thumb.jpeg.fe44850373cfa18447a2ead949394b99.jpeg
