    Pigs

    Went to try and find a group of pigs that had moved onto a mates farm , it was to hot for them to be moving so we set a trap , that was put out about a month ago, now this trap is supposed to catch one at a time, you can imagine our faces when we found 5 weaners in it later that day.
    All are now in the sty fattening up, never got to shoot any , but did get to try out my mk4 leupold 6.5x 20 at 400&500mtrs for the first time, used istrelok to work out drop etc.

    Wildies have always been disappointing to fatten take twice as long and even then never quite get there compared to saddlebacks. Still taste ok and if you got em use em, just dont expect quick results.

    And lots of fat.
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Thanks for the tips lads, the farmer who is looking after them, has wormed them, we most probably will turn them into sausages in a month.
