    Went up to my buddy's new property hoping to fill our buck tags this weekend. We hunted Friday and Saturday. In the end, the deer hunt turned into a hog hunt. We ended up shooting 6 hogs over two days. We shot AT several more. We probably saw maybe 40 hogs total on just his quarter section. Saw a couple decent bucks chasing does, but nothing worth shooting.

    We've got a bunch more pics and videos if I can get them from his phone to put on here. These three pics are only from the two we shot Saturday. A few got under the fence so there were no recoveries.

    My sow we guessed weighed about 170-180lbs and his about 150. We shot three sows with new babies in tow and a couple younger boars. His new place is nuts.

    While not venison it’s still food for the freezer. Congrats on the eats.

    Good shooting!
    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    I want to give a plug to Remington on those Hog Hammer loads for my .30-30. I was shooting those in 150 grain Barnes Triple Shock flat nose hollow point. I had a STEEP quartering away shot on that sow at about 80 yards. Although I didn't get a pass through, that bullet got the heart and opposite lung and did some wicked internal damage. She got maybe 40 yards before expiring. My buddy was skeptical about me using my .30-30 on such big hogs, it did the job really well. My buddy was using his .300 Win Mag and was taking head shots. He likes overkill.

    I just wanted to add that because caliber and load selection always seems to be debated when it comes to hog hunting and I wanted to add my experience. I don't feel under-gunned at all with my .30-30.

    Since I was posting in the contest section and I can't claim these for points I'll add them to my thread here. These were more pictures basically up until February. I'll try to add more, I'll actually carry my phone this time.

    I was just browsing through my old post and thought I'd provide an update on the performance of that .30-30 round. I figured this out later and never posted it up. That steep quartering shot on that sow resulted in that Hog Hammer going in right in front of her hip and exiting out the opposite side of her neck. It was only about a golf-ball sized exit wound, but after traveling about the entire length of the sow on the inside, I'm impressed it exited at all. That is some amazing penetration on a tough animal from a .30-30. Only down side is I have one box left and I haven't seen that available at my local stores as of late. Highly recommend.
