    The others went back for dinner at dark (7pm). I stayed out and the hogs started coming in to the waterhole about 8pm. I would shoot one in the ear, drop it in it's tracks and the rest would run off. About a half hour later and in they came again. Bang and off they'd go. It was kinda fun.

    Rambo, you're all set for a few barbecues there. And was that out on public land somewhere or on a game ranch?

    If you want to send some pork loins or roasts my way I can smoke them and send some back, of course it will be half eaten.

    overrun with hogs

    Rambo, the hogs are good eating during the winter time, but this time of year (warm weather) they are usually full of parasites and I just shoot them and leave them lay. last year we trapped over 600 hogs off of a couple of pastures and didnt make a dent in their numbers. I got a year round lease and several ranches I got permission from landowners to kill or trap as many hogs as I can. they tear up the land so bad with their rooting, the ranchers have a hard time getting their tractors in to work their land, plant, cut and bale hay etc. I usually drive up on them at all hours of the day, so I always carry at least one rifle with me at all times. I live and hunt in south central Texas and we are infested with. I hear our next infestation will be Axis deer in a few years. hope you have good luck next february, there should be lots to shoot.
