Unbelievable hunt this morning. Saw no less than 20 different deer and at one point I had 14 between all four windows of my blind. At 7:30 A.M. every deer straight in front took off like they were hit with a hot shot. I didn?t even wait to see what it was and immediately reached for my hearing protection. I knew it was hogs. This sow and three others showed up seconds later. This one was quartering to me slightly at about 60 yards so I put the red dot tight against the front shoulder and let the 460 take care of the rest. Excellent blood trail to follow though only one hole in the swine. I?m calling this pig ?chorizo?...

Good Shooting. Hogs will run off everything around a feeder.
The 460 did it again with your help. Curious what load you used on it?
