We’ve been seeing lots of hog sign and rooting around the farm fields near my house lately. The fields were planted cotton and peanuts. My hog hunting buddy went out with his thermal a couple nights ago to scout and counted about 43 in the fields. I haven’t hog hunted in at least a couple years but been wanting to go so I charged my external battery pack up for my Nikon and we went last night. I met him in the field around 10 and he had multiple heat signatures around 500 yards away. We began our stalk. Luckily the wind was in our favor as we walked down the tree line next to the field. As we closed the gap, I was able to clearly see them. There were around 30 with many piglets and quite a few larger ones. We came up with our plan and stalked to around 80 yards. We got in posisition and after a quick countdown started to shoot. We ended up with 2. We were hoping for a few more but once the first shot rang, they scattered like the wind. We loaded them up and I called a guy from work and he came out and got them. Exciting night!
