Well We were given a limit of 5 hogs between 2 hunters . I got 2 and my friend got 3 . I took my 7mm08 shooting 140 grain Hornady GMX and both hogs were DRT about 40 minutes apart . I use a varmint light over my scope but it has a white light due to my vision problems . Some times the hogs spook from it like they did the first night . But the second night they didn't seem to mind the second night . They showed up at 6:30 3 nights in a row . The third evening my buddy went where I shoot my 2 and he shot 1 that night . He was shooting a .308 with Hornady 150 grain American Whitetail ammo , We both went to different stands the 4th night and he killed 2 hogs in about a hour and a half . the two I shot was about 150 and the other 90 give or take . My buddies one was about 130 one about 110 and a big sow that was 197 on the scale .
Now for the news know body wants to here . my buddy pulled the trigger 5 time and 2 out of the 5 didn't go off . Good deep dent in the primer but know boom . I have been hearing way to much of this in the last couple years .
We had a great time and came back a day early .

Curious why you were given a limit of 5 hogs when they are such a nuisance down there?? I'd think ranchers would want as many removed as one could shoot?

Nice hunt! Clearly there's a primer issue and I would reach out to Hornady. They won't likely give him anything for it but at least let them know that he's not a happy camper about it. I know Winchester had a similar issue with their Deer Season XP a few years back, particularly in 350 Legend rounds. It sucks when you buy a name you can trust and this happens. I am sure there's more of this than we realize due to mass production trying, but not succeeding, to keep up with demand.

Because the ranchers that have hunting ranches make money off hunts . So they have to keep enough hogs around for the hunters but try to keep it down enough that there isn't to much damage . We didn't have a limit for 11 years but now he sells more hog hunts and cut out some of his deer hunters . He is a big deer hunter himself and it's his ranch .

1200 acers , 5 real nice blinds with feeders a nice bunk house . This year was year 13 for me . He imposed the limit last year . We were not real happy about it . But haven't found a better place to go . most places charge about as much for a 2or 3 day hunt as he charges us for 5 days . And we know the place and just what we are getting into and what to expect . So that means a lot also . I'm pretty sure next year the limit will be 2 per person . I'm pretty sure he threw in the 5th because I didn't get 1 last year . We shall see .
