Gday again, great to see all the winners of the SFD club events. Congratulations
Im still living in the bush, catching barra (not many lately) and shooting pigs. Hanging to get in the water again.
Today I felt was a turning point in my pig hunting. Having successfully nailed 2 pigs out to 300 yards!
I have been very hesitant to pull the trigger on my .243W at anything over 100m. The first piggy went straight down.(to the market) with a solid heart shot
. the other I managed to blow both his feet off
I was stalking a dried up creek bed and the wind turned on me from the south and fucked my cover. Low and behold 4 pigs got up from the scrub and trotted off. I scrambled down to their level in the river bed, used a tree branch to steady and pulled the trigger. BOOM!..... followed by some frantic reloading and discharging of bullets.
The pigs were not taken for their meat because they had been feasting on their brother from 2 weeks before.(see pic) shot in the eye at 30m!
Im going to mis this shit when I come back to the big smoke!
