Congrats James! I believe you kill more hogs than the rest of us on this site combined.

Great account! Does the .22 normally do the job on a hog?

Nicely done, James!

I'm familiar with that sound you heard....Last weekend I was on a night hunt with a friend. We noticed a big pig in a trap about a 150 yard away and decided to swing by after checking all the common kill areas on the property. We walk up to the trap and a 200+lb sow charge us - it made that growl you're referring to. Every time it charged, it growled.... It sure is hard to keep your feet planted when that happens!
