    That's gotta hurt.

    300saum at 30 yards with 168grn LRAB..

    I was lucky enough to be invited to go and do my thing last night on a large Wairarapa Station. Never been there before but it wasn't hard to find my way around and to latch onto a small mob of deer. I was stalking them when Tilly changed her demure and I guessed there was a pig around.

    I thought that the owners would rather I shot a dirt digger than a grass eater so I switched to pig hunting mode and cranked my 'scope down to 3 power.

    We spotted each other at the same time at 20 yards and I was lucky enough to get a shot into him as he bolted.

    Fat as butter. Sharp little hooks.

    Nice, a little bit of pork makes a nice change from venison.

    Should be a tasty addition to the freezer, nice to get a pig or two from time to time.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    @HUNTY Its really interesting that now she has sat next to 89 or so dead animals she is quite cooperative about posing. She's also becoming quite interested in back tracking the dead ones which I'm going to need to get her out of. Once she has found the shot animal she will disappear back-tracking it if I don't watch her, and I can miss where she actually found it. Maybe time for her to go on a tracking line again.

    @Baoaraxa I haven't made pork bacon before but I make venison bacon so will have a go using the same recipe and smoking process. I will let you know how it turns out.

    @Shootm yeah I only get one every year or so so I always get a kick out of it. The cocky had shown me around the station in the morning and had said that fortunately there weren't many pigs because he hated them. So it was a stroke of luck that I struck one. He had come out of the Haurangi forest park on to the grass.
