The Ruger is topped with a picatiny rail and a Burris FastFire III red speck locate. The sight takes some becoming accustomed to so I was glad to shoot a few boxes working out my issues. The 44 Mag can be scary yet by a wide margin, the base I would use for pigs. It doesn’t take a lot to become accustomed to and pinging steel at 100 yards isn’t troublesome from a seat or shooting sticks.


Following half a month of work on shooting with 22 magnum pistol from situated, standing, bowing positions and tree limb rests I thought I was prepared. Rehearsing shots from odd points and positions sets you up for the obscure. Trust me when I state the pigs never coordinate and that ideal seat shot is once in a while in play. It is consistently an unexpected swing left or right simply askew that appears to command the last situation, in any event for me.

Supposing I’m solid and steady, I booked a pig hunt at my preferred swine crushing farm, the Kaian Vista Ranch in Lometa, Texas. I was wearing a full camo ghille suit and face veil. Much like a turkey hunt.

The shot I was arranging would be close up and individual. Close enough to smell them or get gutted by a genuine bruiser of a hog!

I sat and observed each specie that strolled off Noah’s Arc stopped by however not one single pig. Maybe it was the sort of day when everything goes wrong. Later that evening we saw pics of pigs everywhere throughout the opposite side of the farm. So the night hunt would have been there. Watching the sun set and the light diminish I never observed a pig. Well, perhaps I was busted by fragrance or sound. I don’t have the foggiest idea, however tomorrow is one more day. Next morning I arrangement again settled in certain trees and brush in full camo almost a notable pig party area with not a solitary locating. I was coming up short on schedule and persistence however I had the evening and without a doubt, I would see the pigs this time. The evening creeped up on us and soon I was out again – appeared to be regardless of what I was on the contrary side of the farm from where pigs were. Feeling baffled myself and the farm proprietor chose to make this a genuine hunt and go out discover the pigs during the evening!
