First hog
« on: July 07, 2019, 06:06:18 AM »
Iíve seen the results of plenty hog activity on my land for a while, but recently Iíve noticed hog activity in my front yard recently. I even saw them there when Iíve gotten home late, but they scattered when I pulled in the driveway. Well, the other night around 3:45 my dogs were pitching a fit, so I peeked out the window to see several in my front yard. I grabbed my MAK90 thatís loaded with 154gr soft points & has a weaponlight. Went out in the driveway to get clear sightlines (sure didnít want to hit my truck!), took aim at the middle of the group & popped off a few shots. Most scattered, but this sow was down making lots of noise. I put another couple into her until she shut up.

Anybody want to give a guesstimate on her size?


And hereís the damage from the rest of the group.

I'd guess about 90 to 110 pounds.

Hogs can do some considerable damage to yards. That is mild in comparison to what I have seen them do to our pastures in areas. But I would suppose there is enough human activity around that they aren't getting the time needed to do more damage to your yard.

that's called eatin' size.
i hope it didn't stink too bad so you could use it.

i used to think how great it was to have the swine
roaming around on my place until the first time i
found some deep holes they rooted out in the middle
of the field (found it with the tractor that is)

after you have to fix holes they root out and repair fence
and dig up trees you planted that they mess up, having
hogs around isn't so great any more  :thumbsdown:

Well said.

I would guess in the 100 lb range. 
Good luck with the hog problem!
