Morning hog hunt success

Well, this morning was my father and I's last day hunting wild texas hogs on a ranch about an hour and 1/2 east of San Antonio by Gonzalez, Tx. My dad had already gotton his 2 pigs yesterday, one with a Marlin 30-30 and the other with a Savage 22-250. (Both of which belonged to the ranch workers, as our main rifle, a sporterized swedish mauser was experiencing countless problems). So we went to a part of the woods where most most of the hogs tend to group up and within a few minutes spotted a group of average sized hogs. Within 15 minutes I racked my 2 kill limit. The first one was shot between the nose and the eye with that same Savage 22-250. The second was blasted directly in the spine a few inches behind the neck, only a few minutes later with the same weapon. Both went out like a light almost instantly and both were huddled in a group of about 20 other hogs. Overall it was loads of fun as I'd never shot anything more than a rattlesnake and a rabbit in my lifetime.

Here's myself with my kills:
