Shot Another Hog This Morning

Went out to my friends looking for another hog. Saw one across a ravine running away but didn't get a shot at it. Then we drove on down in the bottom by the barge canal and went and parked where I shot the last one. None came and the Mosquitos were bad so we were leaving and Carrie spotted one about two hundred yards up the road. She was driving her husband's gasoline golf cart and we crept up to within a hundred yards or so. I rested the 30-06 on the windshield and shot it in the back. I could barely see it, but I got a hit in the spine from the rump. Surprisingly the bullet didn't hit any guts and hit the spine and desentigrated along the back bone. I was shooting my Remington SPS 30-06 with a 200 grain Sierra Game King. It killed the hog on contact. Another Bang Flopper.

Here's my Filipino mad woman washing it down before she skinned it:

I was really happy with the performance of the 200 grain game king. Now to blood more rifles.

That's Carrie with Fe, my wife, in the first pic.

This pig was about the same size as the last one but seemed much healthier. Had a lot more meat on the hams and front legs.

I'm lovin this stuff!!!

    Nice you killed one.

    When I'm on a golf cart, a 100 yard shot is with a sand wedge!!:roll2:
    Hope you only had 14 guns in your bag!!
    BTW, good shot and a nice pig!!

    Yes, that's about 4 I've shot at their place now. I've retrieved two and two ran off in the high brush.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Well, the pig had a different sort of blast suffice it to say.

    Thanks. I had a ball doing it. I had too long a dry spell, what since 2010? and then about 10 years before that. Now I've killed two hogs in a week. It do feel good.
