    And thanks for the compliments, guys. It's fun to share.

    This was a legendary event, Zee. I betting none of us can claim this kind of success in one night in our lives. I am guessing the porcine population will forever know October 9, 2016 as their Porkopolis! Please don't morph into General Kurtz... ;)

    Excellent work, again... Just think how many shoulders you have to test 10mm on now.

    I almost didn't shoot all of them. After the first theee in the pen and I saw the others outside..........I thought to myself..........I can come save them for another night and get a second hunt out of this.........but alas.......I had a job to do.

    I have seen one pig about the size of those little ones get shot. That little feller caught a 150gr .30 caliber bullet right behind the rib cage. Little pig still managed to drag himself about about 10 yards down hill before Dad caught him and damn near cut his head off, I mean down to the spine. Dad CLAIMED he thought that was how you were supposed to cut and animals throat.

    We cut the ribs off and gave them to my Aunt as baby back ribs.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Very nice clean-up. I wonder if those last piglets smelled/saw the other (dead) pigs and made the fatal mistake of trying to rejoin the bunch.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Oh yeah, they tracked them to my location. I'd drug them all along the same route to where I took the pic. Thempiglets walked right down that drag mark to me.

    I'll go ahead and add that to my stash of "when I go pig hunting" tricks. Nothing like live scent to pull them in, I guess.

    Damn near as much action too! That's why I say I'd almost rather hunt hogs than deer.

    Yummy, cochinillo!!! The video is in Spanish but you'll get the meaning. Looks at the cooking instruction and you can do this on your grill. It is a very typical dish in Spain (and it's taken VERY seriously!!!) and this guy is an award winning chef in a Restaurant that has kept the tradition alive! The oven is kept between 180 and 200 and it's typically a wood fire.
    I speak just enough Spanish to get my ass whipped! But if he would speak a little slower I may can pick up enough to have a vague idea of what he said.

    But that looks so good! It looks good enough to eat!!!

    The irony of this situation is that:

    I shot that last piglet with the "not dead yet" gun high through the shoulders and dropped him. But, when I walked over to him......he was "not dead yet".

    Instead of shooting him again with the "not dead yet" gun for which I had brought the stupid thing..........I choked him to death.

    Let me just say..........it ain't as easy as one would think to choke out a 12 pound piglet. Sucker was rather tenacious and clinging to life. It took a little time and effort to deprive the brain of oxygen long enough to shut things down. Of course, after I started, it became a personal challenge to finish the task as opposed to pulling off and either shooting or stabbing the little ****!

    I've choke out deer before and even a cat. It ain't ever easy. And yet.........I never learn.

    There is no air. There is no sound.

    A good bit of thrashing, though.

    I thought there'd at least be a squawk at the beginning!

    Which reminds me, I've choked out dove before as well. When I didn't want to pull their heads off in front of my daughter while hunting.

    That reminds me of when my youngest daughter was 5 years old and two of the other kids had chickens in the fair. After the fair we had to kill and dress the chickens just so as not to bruise the breast and pack them very presentable for the person that bought them in the auction. I made the kid that raised that pin of chickens do it. But we always had like 5 times more chickens than showed so we had a better choice of good chickens to show. So daddy got to clean the rest. One day I ask my wife to give me a towel at the back door (I was doing this in the back yard) and I told her to keep Patricia inside so she wouldn't see me killing and cleaning them. But my wife got busy with other things and I'm out there killing chickens when I hear a little voice behind me say, "Daddy, can I kill one now?" It was Patricia. I shoulda known then that some day she'd make a good lawyer!

    Neighbor up the road would wring their necks - it was great fun watching the headless chickens run around.

    One actually managed to fly up and get lodged in a tree one time.

    They just sent me a picture. Their boy shot one of the two remaining piglets out of the pen this evening.

    I had told them to keep a gun handy. That the piglets would likely return or be hanging out there.

    Believe it is a .222 Remington if I remember his dad talking about it. Can't remember the make.

    Unzipped the piglet pretty good.
