Dirt nap
« on: August 06, 2017, 03:45:57 PM »
Not too much of a  story here, I got to this spot about 5:15 pm within 5 Min I hear this sow working the hillside. 40 Min later I finally catch a glimpse of her back and belly and before I can get my rifle up she disappeared again. A few minutes later I see a tree shake and the her head and shoulder pops out, i settle the crosshairs and let one fly and she summer saults down the hill 10 yds. I see some black fur moving behind a tree and let another fly just to be safe and doesn't move an inch after that. First shot was enough it destroyed her heart, about an inch of the bottom of it was left.
