I am going on a pig hunt, Nov 22, 2014, south of Orlando, north of Okeechobee, and I have openings for four more hunters.

Anyone interested in details, please contact me.

    Is Tannerite involved in any way?

    You should do well anywhere in that area. Used to manage the timber and wildlife on a big ranch down below Kenansville close to where you are talking about, and the whole place was totally infested with feral hogs.

    This year I am taking my .243 and 45-70, plus a 30-06 and a 30-30 for loaners.

    Yep me too. I finally went out to the lease today for the first time in 3 months. It was a shambles and I need some more camo netting or maybe some tow sacks and wire ties. Also the pvc my blind is constructed of is coming apart and needs some gluing which I'm going to take care of tomorrow. My old suburban broke down out a the far end of the lease where I hunt. I shut it off to set up a feeder and fill it with corn and also fix my blind and when I went to leave it wouldn't start. Not a bit of fire. But i don't think it's getting any gas to the throttle body injector. I think the gas gauge went south on it and it ran out of gas when I shut it off. I didn't have enough tools with me to check it out so I called my wife and told her to come get me. In my infinite wisdom I didn't dummy lock the main gate when I came in. I usually do that, that way she could have just drove in. But I went anal and locked the damn gate and we only have one key to the place and it was with me more than two miles back inside the gate. To make matters worse, there's no phone signal back there in the river bottom. So I had to walk about a quarter mile to get a phone signal. When I got where my signal was showing, I called Fe and told her where I was. Then I called Mark K, one of the guys that sub leases my part to me and ask him if he could come unlock the gate so my wife could come in and get me. He was working just up the road on a another farm and he drove right by the gate. Fe said when she got there Mark was just pulling up. So he unlocked the gate and let her in. I was never so happy to see headlights approaching in the dark. I had walked about a mile already and I was getting tired because of all the junk I was carrying. Another reason I was very happy was because when I was driving in I saw a nice 4 foot rattler crawling across the road, and knowing he might still be in the neighborhood I wasn't relishing the thought of walking all the way to the gate. When Fe picked me up I still had about a mile and a half to go to reach the gate.

    Your in box is full, but like I said I'm in. Are FL pigs small enough to use a tough .223 bullet on? I'm thinking 60gr Partitions or 64gr Fusions.

    Cleared my inbox.

    A friend of mine used a .223 on our last pig hunt and the animal just ran away. Placement is key. I have a 30-30 I could loan out.

    I don't know about Florida hogs but a well placed .223 bullet should kill about any hog walking. The use them around here extensively and kill loads of hogs with everything from .223 ARs to .223 Bolt guns of all brands and styles like that would make a difference. Go for it.

    I would not hesitate to take a head shot or even a broadside with my .223 loaded with 70 gr. Barnes Triple Shocks, as long as there were no twigs in the way, such as from a fixed blind. If freehand shooting was required on moving targets, though, I would probably want something stronger.
