Sorry fellow crow busters. I retired March a year ago and have been slaying hogs with a passion ever since. LOL

Killed 1,310 in 2018 and I am over 1,150 so far this year. Mix in a bunch of coons and coyotes and I am having a blast. But, I still love a good crow shoot.

I did have a decent shoot a week or so ago killing 81. I am going in the morning to try and improve on that total. 

Will try to stay plugged in better from now on.

That's a heck of a lot of hogs ! They have become quite a problem in Oklahoma but i doubt anyone is getting the numbers you are. Do you strictly do night hunting for them ? Some guys around here use dog's on them. I think the guys with the big remote traps are doing the best. We used to shoot pigeons in a hog barn years ago. Those hogs made a feast of them when they fell into the hog pen. makes me wonder if they would tear into a pile of dead crow's left in the field after a good shoot.

About 80% with thermal optics and the rest with Jager Pro traps.

Killed 96 crows this morning. Good shoot. If I had shot worth a darn, I would have killed 125.

Hey Barry, you shoot any little pigs in the 40 to 60 pound range? They would make for some good eating.

What caliber rifle do you use on hogs? What grain bullet?

You should bait some of your areas with the dead crows.

Do your Alabama spare ribs still taste as good as the last time I saw you?

You must be one of the very top guys in the country for killing hogs!

Barry,

Good reports. Keep laying them down... both pigs and crows!

Could be your rifle shooting is having an impact on your shotgunning. It’s a balancing act. Choices, choices.

Hey Bob,

I am running 6.5 Grendels on all my thermals now. The ammo is cheap. I am shooting the Wolf 100 gr FMJ.
I kill lots of pigs in that range. Come on down and get some. Will try to work in a crow shoot or two while you are here.

IS,

I am shooting a new A5 DS, I haven't shot a semi auto in many years. I still working out my shot shell and choke combo to see what works best.
I will get it worked out.

Georgia has a big hog population also. 20 years ago we used 3rd generations night vision with long distance camera lens attached with hose to see them way off. 5 pittbulls to catch them and 10 bay dogs. Suckling piglets are the best to eat. 30 live hogs a night are good numbers. When we caught a 500 lbs Boar and caped him out was the end of our hunting, as the goal was to mount a trophy. The good old days. Enjoy it while you can.
