    Posted by aparker79 on June 23, 2022 at 12:07 pm

    I’m stationed in GA and I’ve been hunting a total of 2 months. I’ve been going literally every weekend just trying to get pigs. I’ve seen them four times. The first time I ever went, was with my friend, he called the pigs with a “call” they went to the high ground about 50 yards away and we had no clear shot. Second time I went, I am with my friends who are way more experienced killed two with their .357 and the other one with a .45. Alright, third time, walked for 2 minutes they were crossing a creek bed. I was shaking from the adrenaline I shot my .30-06 and the bullet went right over the spine. Today for the fourth time seeing the pig I brought my 12 ga., I walked maybe 5 minutes and I see 4 or 5 pigs, I’m calm and collective this time and the moss-berg misfires, the pigs are squealing and running off i blast off 2 more shells and no kill. Tbh I’m super embarrassed and feel like a complete failure. F IN THE CHAT

    Need some thermal or night vision if you really want to hunt pigs.

    Where you stationed?

    The day I don’t get buck fever is the day I hang up my gun. You’ll get ’em one day.

    Bait them bitches. Sprinkle corn over a large area and set up to wait for them. They’ll stay in the area and pick the place clean. You should have plenty of time to watch them, calm down, and make a good shot. Putting the corn in a pile will crowd them and potentially offer a multi-kill with one bullet, but they’ll go through the bait fast and won’t stick around more than a minute or two.

    If possible, draw them into a clearing from the woods. They are smart, but they are greedy.

    There is a reason they are so invasive. They are not easy to kill.

    In the south, they are called wild hogs…

    Look on the bright side. You’re giving the pigs their exercise!

    That’s why it’s called hunting not killing

    Dude, only shoot when you are confident in placing a clean shot. Why would you risk only injuring the animal to then have it die cruelly over the course of days or weeks?

    For what it’s worth you are not alone in this!

    I’ve been sneaking around the place after a crowd of hogs for a couple of weeks and it’s been a comedy of errors. But I’m not laughing.

    That’s awesome you see pigs every time, sometimes within minutes. Hunting out here in AZ you may not see stuff for hours on end when it’s hunting season. Sounds like if you keep at it you’ll have a full freezer soon 🥓.

    I’m curious how the Mossberg misfired. Bad primer on the shell? Awesome that you’ve been getting opportunities wherever you’re going hunting though.
