Nice job buddy, you really like taking the fight to those hogs! You might consider a little bigger back up gun than a 22, just saying!

James,

It is obvious that you love hunting boar.

I was wondering if you have ever been to a place called Buffalo Creek Guide Services in NC?

They offer combination hunts for boar, whitetail, predator and when in season black bear!

I am thinking of going there in the near future.

Have you ever been?

Check them out if not, they get good reviews.

I had picked up a pair of sunglasses from Cabela`s, not to long ago, that hold a small video camera and of all the times for me not to turn the camera on I had to pick this hunt....Lets go back to late this past Sunday mourning as I sat on a hillside with my guide at Tioga and my model 29 rested on my knees. The S&W is the Classic model with a 5" barrel and recently installed LPA rear sight holding two green fiber optics on either side of the notch. The front sight is a tall brass bead and with the two combined give these tired eyes of mine very fast sight acquisition on a dark boar..... Back in the woods a group of boar came up the hillside and stopped around 80 yards away and there they stayed until they moved off in the opposite direction without a chance for a shot. And that`s how we left them, undisturbed, until we returned after lunch. I was using a handload with 21.5grs of IMR-4227 under a 250gr Partition and after sighting in at 40 yards I found it to be a most accurate combination in both the model 29 and my DW 744....When we returned and were making our way to another high point we spotted the boar, bedded down, about 40 yards away. Got out longbow string longbow string and put it on my bow.
They were sound asleep laying in the warm sunshine. A perfect open sight handgun situation....With my right arm against a tree I lined up the brass bead along side the fiber optics and centered on the boars shoulder. BANG...and off they ran down


Thanks for sharing. I love reading this kind of material

I believe I've hunted there a number of years ago. Yeah, in fact that was the place. Never saw any big hogs, but did manage to pop a couple of barbeque-sized hogs within thirty minutes of each other with my .480 SRH.

Max,

How would you rate your say at BCGS?

Did you see any deer or bear or bobcat?

I hope you will elaborate on your experience with them.
