Had a phone call yesterday morning from an old sheep shearing mate who often gets out for a pig or two, He phoned to ask if I was keen to go and have a look with him on some ground that was being ploughed up by pigs so I had to stop and think for about 1 second and said yes.
We arranged to meet just before dark and then headed out to the spot looking out across a field towards the wood that the pigs were living in. We only had to wait about 15 mins before we could see movment in the moon light with a quick look through the night vision and I was seeing my first wild pigs. There was 6 or 7 playing around all about the same size litter mates I would think, one of them offered a clean shot to the shoulder and I took it and down it went! before they all ran we managed another 2 shots with 2 more dead pigs ! To say I was a happy boy would be a understatment. We waited a while just incase any others wanted to show them selves but nothing showed so went to collect our pigs , they were all young animals so should be good eating I am looking forward to getting them cut up and trying some I might even have a go at making some sausages.
I know some may say that using night vision on them is not that sporting but when you see the damage that they do you can understand that they need to be thined out a bit and it seems the best way of doing so !
I only had my phone with me so don't have any good photos might have another go with camera when I butcher them up.
