I went on my first hog hunt this weekend, and today ended up awesome. I took two with one shot. It was very cold for Florida and the pigs weren't moving so we ended up going into the brush and palmetto groves. It was extremely difficult going, sometimes we were on our hands and knees or crouched low to the ground working our way through the thick stuff but the pigs were in there too.
Most scattered when we startled them and then my guide pointed into some trees and brush. I immediately saw a pig but a small tree was in the way of a shot so I moved a bit right, pointed the dot just behind the right ear, and from about 25-30 yards, I fired one shot. The first pig, a black one dropped immediately, then I saw the tan one twist around and flop to the ground seconds later. The first pig was hit just behind the ear and the second pig was hit in the right shoulder.
I was using a CMMG 16" carbine length, unsuppressed, with 125gr. Atlantic Arms Nosler ballistic ammo. This was the first one used where I was hunting and the 300BLK drew a lot of attention from the other hunters.
I arrived home about 2 pm, cut one slab of ribs from the side of one, popped them into the oven and I just finished eating. Good, but not a lot of meat on the ribs, I should have done both slabs.
my buddy trapped 36 last year 40-100lbs. the ribs were all to lean to keep IMHO
