    Huh! Pigs do fly!
  • ZeeZee Senior Member Posts: 27,467 Senior Member
    Some friends and I did some hunting/shooting this weekend. In the first night, we had 12 pigs down. One of which was a pretty good boar of 275-300lbs.

    These were the eaters from the first night.

    The non-eaters got thrown in the trash dump at the ranch. Some guts had been placed 300 yards from the ranch house with a 4lb bottle of Tannerite with the hope a yote would come to dinner. Well, right before dusk, no yote had taken the invite. So, we decided to pull the big boar out of the trash pig and lay him on the bottle of Tannerite.

    Backed off about 80 yards and shot the bottle with my LR-308.

    The big "chunk" you see flying to the right in the video is the pigs HEAD!

    Which flew however far that was you saw in the video.

    His back leg(s) flew away from us and were obscured in flight by the smoke.

    His mid section...............well..........there were so many pieces scattered about.............

    And the resulting crater was about a foot deep.

    I have seen these videos on YouTube. They don't compare to the real thing in person. It. Was. AWESOME!!!

    Over 2 nights, we shot 20+ pigs.

    One of which was with my new LR-308 with 168gr TAP AR at about 200 yards.

    This evening my friend and I culled a doe on his ranch with a head shot @ about 66 yards using a ,223 Rem and 55gr HP bullets. I'm posting it just because I thought it was a cool pic and fit the carnage of the thread.

    I thought the "big chunk flying" was the BODY at first!

    Nope. Just the head.

    Good pictures as always - but I'm sorry to see that your camera's having facial problems again! :tooth:

    My buddy shot an axis buck in the head this weekend, and one of the antlers popped off and flew 3 feet away

    Damn! Pretty impressive. My only disappointment in this thread is that I came fully expecting that you had commandeered a M203 and smoked a pig with it.

    That little piggy didnt go to market......he went into the scrub....down the road.....climbed some trees........all at the same time!

    Good haul of 'eaters'. Bet the rancher was happy.

    Regarding the doe, ya gotta love those head shots........Where's the pic of the exit wound?
    Interesting thing I have noticed with head shots that cause the eyes to bulge out........The optic nerve must be quite strong as I have never seen an eye completely pop out with a severed nerve. I have seen them pop out and hang by the nerve on the deers cheek though.

    I have been reconsidering my gun choices for pig hunting.

    I took an 80 lb boar that was holed up by a dog with my Glock 22 and a magazine of Silvertips three weeks ago. A double tap, one just above between the eyes and a second slightly to the right didn't kill that boar. It was stunned, but still angry and dangerous. It required a back of the skull coup de gras. They are tough critters!

    How do you distinguish between eaters and non-eaters? Size, sex, combination of both?

    Just curious.

    Yes.
    And add “smell” the the equation.

    By the way that is awesome!!! Been wanting to glue a bunch on bearings to about a ten pound block and put it in a corn pile here until we got about ten or so eating around it....then.......BANG!

    When I first glanced at this I thought you baited up a live pig and blew him up!
