    JT, pig hunting is more opportunity than skill.
    That's why I would rather trap them.
    Feral pigs can be nocturnal, are never still and never quiet.
    Tomorrow, just the opposite.
    Feral pigs make deer seem like house pets.
    Shoot up a sounder (herd) of pigs and they disappear.

    Yesterday, when my buddy and me were cleaning the piglets, he turned to me and said, "Look up there!"
    A round hay bale is about 6 foot tall!
    Right on top of a row of bales was a set of hog droppings that would make a rhino blush!

    Wild pigs carry brucellosis, pseudo rabies and a myriad of other diseases.
    Cook feral pigs "WELL" done!

    At one time in Texas, almost any rancher would allow almost anybody to, "Please kill these things!"
    Today, ranchers have found a new source of income.
    They got tired of strangers tearing down fences, rutting up crops, off roading where they should't, killing livestock and leaving gates open.

    They're big, nasty, smelly, dangerous, diseased, tough and hard to hunt.
    Sounds fun to me bubba plus I like bacon.

      LOL! JT, bacon is made from the fat on the outside of the ribs.
      Feral hogs have no fat! They eat no high protein hog ration and they run everywhere.
      You may, however, find enough fat to make some pretty tasty sausage!

      R. got a feral pig out of a trap in early May. He decided to feed the pig and slaughter it for the 4th of July!
      Two months later, he had a $75 feed bill and a scrawny hog!

        Crap I would have to settle with pork chops and ribs. Still be worth it to shoot a few. What state you in bubba?

          I'm always way too excited for hunting season to come around, but Ive definitely had those 4am moments where I have a real hard time getting out of bed. I think that happens to all of us, right? Especially those times when I don't have a great spot in mind. Either I haven't scouted enough or the good spots didn't pan out, and I'm having a hard time deciding where to go. Kodi nox Those are the hardest times to get out of a warm bed in the middle of the night.

            by PigHunter
            I only attach a bipod for sight-in and load development at the range. And that's relatively new for me. Previously I've just used sandbags. The bipod...

            by FirstBubba
            I've seen bipods on hunting rifles, but always considered them nonessential and cumbersome ... until I started building AR's.
            A bipod, to me, just...

            I use bi-pods of all kinds, and I use them so much of the time.
            Uses?

            by PigHunter
            We have concrete benches at our range and I usually just shoot at 100 yards. May fling a bullet at 200 to check the Nikon Prostaff 5 BDC marks. It's...

            If you do hunt high up check out the Weatherby Bsckcountry line. The Mark V is the Cadillac and is still reasonable at around $2500. I have two but have...
