Father's day California pig hunt

Recommended Posts

Yesterday was the start of my California pig hunt and we were in pigs at first light.The first pig spotted was a banded white and black that came up from the crop fields .She was small and had a piglet and a smaller pig in tow .Won't shoot the sow with the piglet.So into the hills we went and we did find pigs .We found a good group and it was on .I couldn't get a shot on the lead boar and the guide said to shoot the third one back .Just before I was going to let it rip he waived me off and said we could do better.No pigs spotted in the afternoon hunt just some California blacktail deer .

Up at 3 am to meet my guide again.First pig spotted on the move up a draw at 300 yds .I'm up on the sticks and dialed for the yardage and gun goes click.I forgot to put a round in the pipe.No luck for a recover he was gone.Lots more driving and looking.I never would have thought coming to California and seeing bull elk .But we came across 3 bulls full rack and Awsome.Ill post some pics when I get home and upload from the camera.A few hours and several miles later we ended up on one of the guides buddy's ranch.As we go thru the gate I see a cow elk in the field and quickly take a picture.My guide Tom says there's a good pig in the field.So I get my gun this time I put a round in it and we are on the move .At 200 yds I'm on the sticks and dialed for the hold.Tom says let's get closer .So we move and now I'm inside a hundred and zeroed back out .I got the go ahead to shoot when the pig turned and let it fly .Right thru the pig .It started to run and Tom says great shot I can see blood .The pig ran about 40 yds and piled up .Ill put up the other pics of the elk and turkey and kill shot when I get back home.

Sorry guys I haven't had it in me to do the follow up and get the rest of the pictures up.What I will say is I left for California sick with a head cold and sinus infection and wasn't going to let that slow me down .My outa state license and tag were only good for another week so I couldn't reschedule.I planned on leaving paso Robles Friday to see my kid sister in Huntington beach .I woke up at 3 am Friday to extreme pain on my left side .I knew it was kidney stones again.Nothing I could do but get in the truck and drive the 5 hours .I felt a little better Saturday and made it home .At the Dr's today and confirmed its stones again .Ill get stuff up as soon as I can.
