Hog/ram hunt. *pic heavy

64 posts in this topic

Well we went out for our hogs and rams last Saturday I took my step brother this time. Was his first time hunting. He's wanted to start hunting for a couple years not but his dad wouldn't let him. So i convinced him this would be a good way to see if he could actually kill before I get him too involved. Also took my father in-law who hasn't been hunting in over 40 years. Went with some friends too. Had a good time.

I love hog hunting!

I own a small ranch in Tx, a d we have a real problem with hogs. They destroy everything they touch, fences, pens, livestock feeders, ect. We go out a couple of times a year and hunt them. In Texas, it is legal to hunt hogs (considered varmints) at night, and one of my friends is trying to talk me into NVG's for night ops.

 

Many people hunt them with dogs and pistols. Personally, I set up a blind and hunt with AR-15's.

The smaller hogs, under 100 lbs or so, make great eating. They are good to roast whole or butcher into your favorite pork cuts.

Larger hogs we make into sausage.

 

Looks like y'all had a good time out there!

 

Cheers!

223/556? How's that work on Hogs?

http://s46.beta.photobucket.com/user/r0bb6ub9/media/DSCN0585_zpscf09d6bb.mp4.html Used a .223 with a 75gr bullet. went 5 feet and rolled. .223 is enough gun.

Sure, i dont see why not. I guess i would need to get some gear together tho. I wouldnt even know where to start...

Do i need to get a PA hunting license?

No licence required. just orange vest, hat and gun

It's a good time. For the price, these guys do it right. I was undecided about going for almost 2 years now, after talking with MosinRob about it, and his experiences there, I booked. Nothing like taking a 300lb pig with a bow ($350). They take you over to the Island in the am, the hunt takes place on the island (150 acres). Your not walking up to the pigs in a pen and shooting them, they are out on the island, roaming around.. They bring the pigs over the night before, or that morning because they will swim back to the mainland eventually, and it's a far swim. They have local butchers in the area that will come and take the hog/ram and butcher to your liking. Butcher services were reasonable, I am paying $150.00 for;

 

Bacon

Sausage

Hams

Ribs

Pork Chops

 

all cryovac'd in 1-2lb packages.

 

Someones gonna kill the pig and butcher it, add all kinds of chemicals and sell it to you in store. OR, you can do it yourself, load up your freezer AND be a part of the process..

 

bacon....

The Ram hunting looks okay, but shooting a common farm hog doesnt really interest me.

 

I don't know what kind of hogs these were, but feral hogs (all over the southern half of the country, and getting closer), are mean dangerous animals and relatively hard to hunt!

No license required, use any bow or gun you'd like. I'd appreciate if you could get in touch with me before saturday. Thanks

 

Hey Rob! I'm wondering about doing this soon, and using my Colt Walker. Did you stay overnight prior to the hunt, or just drive real early to get there?

    • fresh pan fried noodles... dim sum... beef & tomatos... salt & pepper pork.  wash it all down with some tsing tao damn I miss chinatown   saint marks is amazing too for japanese izakaya and gigantic bottles of hot or cold sake  
    • screw take-out... Now I want to take a trip to china town and hit up Wo-Hop
    • AVB, thanks for posting this.  I have a lot of the same concerns that you had as you set out for your trip.  When the permits are issued I plan to carry a Walther PPS M2 when I travel to states where my permits allow.  To help with the varying laws, I think the apps and cheat sheets you wrote about will help a lot.   The issues I am looking for insight on are how to safely and legally go from fopa transport to carry, best way to deal with bathroom stops and what will be the best holster type and position to use.  As far as all of this ergonomic stuff, I wasn't sure how well any particular IWB would work while driving. I've seen a couple very soft leather IWB holsters with some sort of lambskin interior.  Maybe this isn't a real concern but something as soft as that might allow the trigger to be pressed while in the holster. Or create some sort of crappy, unsafe draw stroke in a hurry if the weapon shifts around.  It looks comfortable but my uninformed innitial thought was something more like a Kydex molded holster with some soft leather on the outside.  Something that keeps the weapon in the same place every time my hand goes to draw it. I think bringing a bag along is helpful.  HE...I was going with Michael Kors.... but now you got me considering Coach....  I wouldn't do SoB.  I'd probably duct tape it between my shoulder blades first.  Can't remember what tv show or movie I saw that in..... And then after I sort this basic operational stuff out out and get comfortable ...and not paranoid about carrying, there's the important issue of how well will I perform / react if a situation arises where I need to use the weapon?  Gun games are fun and help with the mechanics I suppose.  But none of them help with the decision process leading up to drawing and firing the weapon.  At least, I don't believe they do. Different type of training. Different mindset.  I believe.  A conversation for a different thread. Again, excellent thread AVB.  Thanks for starting it and drawing in a lot of excellent comments from others.  
    • Crap, now i'm hungry and its too late to order takeout. Going to raid the fridge..   The chicken with cashews is a new favorite, as is the chicken with broccoli in some sort of garlic sauce. That stuff is bangin'.
      I'm Jewish and follow a fair bit of the rules, so no shrimp or pork for me, so i'm probably a bad person to ask..  
    • Pretty much everything listed here is all take-out quality stuff. Singapore Mei Fun is probably the most legit.  Boneless Rib Tips are good. Fried Chicken from Chinese takeout places is usually good.  The Iced tea (if not in a bottle) is usually Lipton powder mix, lol.
