Have not had much luck lately with trapping them, but they seem to show up while I am out turkey hunting, that is fine with me

Saturday afternoon, I was going to the other side of our land to try to strike up a gobbler, came up out of the creek and was about to drive thru the oat patch on the 4 wheeler. I seen our cows out there and I seen our calves laying over to the right of the gate, but I also seen some pigs on the other side of the cows on the far side of the field. Well there just happens to be a few trees growing up in the fence row, so I parked the 4 wheeler, got the shotgun and started walking on the other side of the trees to get whithin shotgun range of the pigs. Finally got within range and slowy made my way up and under a mesquite tree and picked out a pig, boom, down she went. There was about 10 of them out there and while they were running away I unloaded the shotgun on them, but only managed to get the one

Good job on the shotgun hog. I've only done it once and that was in Florida. That is a perfect meat pig!

Nice work, again! Did you take 'em with turkey loads, or did you switch out to buckshot?
