First hog hunt

Went on my first hog hunt in Oklahoma 18-19 January. Not knowing what to expect, I had a good time. Here is the result. He was running broadside, hit him low in the right shoulder at about 20 yards with my 300WSM, 168gr TSX, behind Reloder19. I figure he weighed close to100lbs.

First hog hunt

Hunter777,

Method of hunting was stalking. There were a couple of feeders but they were hitting them at night.

cam69conv,

I was very pleased with the TSX performance at that distance traveling 3011fps. I was very apprehensive after we got there and found out that stand hunting was not going to work. If I go again I will use a pistol or a 30-30. The brush was thick and a scope at that range is just about useless. Had alot of fun and learned some things. The sausage came out really good and the steaks are pretty good as well.

30/30 with iron sights or a low power scope such as a 2.5-7 set on 2.5 is great.
