Thread: Thermal hog eradication 14 hogs down

  1. #1

    Default Thermal hog eradication 14 hogs down

    Started the night with a coyote shot from about 100 yds. Spun around for a few seconds and fell over. Bullet entered behind shoulder and exited front of shoulder. That video didn't record (forgot to enable video mode on the Reap-ir) but it did remind me to enable video on the scope which allowed me to get the next 14 confirmed hog kills from this sounder on video.
    Couple hours later driving/scanning I spotted "a couple" hogs.....
    equipment used: 12.5" ARP upper in 6.8 SPCII from Eric at Blackstone Arms. Reap-IR thermal scope from Cliff at Third Coast Thermal. Sig Sauer 762 titanium QD suppressor from Silencer Shop. Helmet mounted PVS-14. https://youtu.be/nVhzk5Kj-s0

    Holy smokes! Is this your business or are you eradicating the hogs from your property?

    Thanks! No not a business. Not my property either. Helping a land owner get rid of the hogs on his property. Mutually beneficial for us. He trusts me on his place and I enjoy getting out in nature, killing hogs and playing with fun toys!

    Those big bores will knock the crap out of them! A little harder to get back on target with the follow up shots on the runners though.

    Yes they're great eating. Wild hog meat is very lean. Low and slow to keep the meat moist and fully cooked to prevent parasite/disease transfer. I freeze the meat for a week before eating any of it also.
