Here’s your monthly reminder that America’s hog problem isn’t getting any better. If you’re blissfully unaware of just how bad the problem has gotten, just know that feral hogs wreak havoc on their ecosystem, drive out competing species, and destroy arable land to the tune of billions in damages to farmers every year.
And the worst part? Unchecked, the hog population can TRIPLE every three years because they breed so fast.
Thankfully, hunters like Brad Korando are doing their part to control the spread of feral pigs.
Armed with a 6.8 SPC rifle and thermal scope, he located a hog eating corn in the woods late at night—and made the most of the opportunity.
Check it out, but be warned: it’s not for the faint of heart.
My buddy slipped up on this one content eating corn. #cornthief #rip #bacon #bloodgusher #bloodfountain @pulsarnightvision #trailxq38 #heartshot #barnesttsx #pulsarnightvision #68spc #hoghunting #thermalhunting #thermal #wildboar #wildpig #loneboar #smokedhimPosted by Brad Korando on Monday, October 9, 2017
What a shot.
Brad got it right in the heart (or major artery—I’m not a doctor), and the blood spurted out like a fountain. I’ve never seen anything like it.
We’re going to have to develop a top-down strategy for dealing with the hog infestation. Until that time comes, hunters are doing God’s work in eradicating as many of this invasive species as possible.
So grab a 6.8 SPC rifle and a thermal scope and get to work.
