    me my dad and my buddy joey went out thrashing yesterday and my dad said he would try and flush soemthing out towards us..5 minutes into it we hear HOG!!!! as im setting the "Extra" gun down and almsot immediatly here my buddy joey letting loose his SKS. Turn and see about a 350-400 lb solid black hawg runnin about 500 mph towards us then cutting away..he said he got it on the first round and maybe the second lol..we tracked the thing over 2 miles through brush and straight across a giant wheat field and into a LOT mroe brush..found a peice of mouth an teeth and a steady blood trail til labout the 2 mile mark :smile2: then lost it...could not find the thing. not sure if my dad got his buddy out with the dogs last night or not but it was a great time none the less lol

    Ashamed? bout as ashamed as i am when these nasty things come up and tear the yard all to hell in the middle of the night and tumble trash cans. Im not condoning wounding an animal and losing them but we tracked the damn thing for at least 2 miles and my dad went out with dogs twice trying to find it and could not. so no i do not feel ashamed that the pig was wounded. we put out an honest effort to find the damn thing and kill it.

    well if getting off alot of shots is what he is trying to do then he done a good job but one good placed shot is all he needs. he needs to learn how to shoot at running game or stay home
