North I-10. Draw a triangle between Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio, and I'm just about in the center of it.

A buddy has been having a big hog problem on his property, so a few of us went out Friday to see if we could get any.

I ended up getting two big ones (one was huge) within 20 yards of each other. First one (on left) came in solo about 150yds out from an elevated blind. Shot it on it's right side. I knew my shot was low, but it darted about 30 yds then just stopped and laid down. The bigger one came in about 40 min later and walked to about 20 yds from the first and just stood there, basically facing me from about 175 yds out. That one i got right in the noggin. No exit wound. It dropped immediately.

This one on the right was the biggest one i've seen personally seen shot here in Texas. Im sure much bigger have been of course.

We took the backstraps, but left the rest to the coyotes.

We actually wired one of them to a pole and set up a video game cam facing it. Should be interesting to see what it shows.
