successful pig hunt

I did this last week in the Paso Robles area. We're calling him #320. Gonna make a nice wall mount, I hope.

Taken at 200 yards with a Ruger Hawkeye in .300 RCM with a 150 grain Hornady GMX bullet. One hit, and he was DRT. I became a believer.

Congratulations mzimmers,

That's a very nice Trophy! I would be stoked to shoot one that size here in Hawaii. I have seen a few big Boars but nothing like that.
Happy Hunting!

Thanks, Frontier –

They must be growing big this season. The day I took this one, five of us -- yes, FIVE -- all took good-sized boars. Two were over 300#. The outfitters said that in all of 2008, they only took five that big. And...we saw some during our hunts that looked even a bit bigger. Just after I got mine, another got up from his bed and hustled out of view.

It was an enormously successful day of hunting, that's for sure.

Thanks, Tracker...here's another pic I just got back. I look like a doofus, but it's a great pic of the hog and the area:

Nice Hog!

I am in Nor Cal and am looking to go on my first pig hunt. I see that Paso Robles area has a lot of hog activity. Can you give me some more information about your hunt? i.e. did you use a guide service, public or private land, specific location, etc? You can PM me is you wish.

I did use a guide. Hunting on public land is tough in most of CA, and access to private land without a guide is hard to get.

That was a speedy reply, thanks

Which guide did you use? Would you use them again?

I used these guys:

and I'd use them again in a heartbeat. If you use them, ask for Jim. He's fantastic.
