.22mag hunt

Postby gobblerD » Tue Oct 11, 2016 10:31 am

Had fun shooting a fat sow that kept coming to the feeder. Thanks to a buddy of mine for inviting me to his property. This pig will eat good.
Shot was 35 yards. And no meat wasted.

Some good eats there!

I live right on management land here and we are only allowed rimfire and we take em all the time w .17hmr and wsm , people think were nuts and unethical but i have to tell you i have never lost a pig and never had even take another step! A well placed head shot and no wasted meat! Im really wanting to see how a .22 mag does compared just never had the pleasure of owning one yet,
Thanks for posting :thumbleft:

I love hog hunting with .22mag. Even if you break him down and finish him off... no meat wasted. Those bullets don't tear up meat. :thumbleft:

Love me some rimfire. In my opinion the .22 mag is a very underrated round for a lot of things. When I was a kid we used to rabbit hunt with .22's ..... it sure made 'em easy to clean.
