Two-thirds done with the state requirements for after-dark deer surveys up near Clarksville. This time like most times, we ran into some pigs while counting deer. A little herd of eight to ten scattered across in front of us and Alan stopped the Bronco and lit them up. I had a suppressed Ruger 10/22 with Wolf Match Target subsonics, (40 grain), in the magazine. With that load the gun sounds like a big industrial stapler. I could hear the bullets hitting the pigs and shot doubles and triples on every target I could find. I think I shot eight times and heard all of them hit except one. Two pigs were down and at least one other was hit. Maybe more.
There might have been a couple bigger but I started with the first one in the light and shot until they were gone. Closest shot was about 20 yards and the farthest at 50. Not much to the shooting. I was firing at the front shoulder but really would have ultimately shot at any part of a pig. It was mostly up to Alan and the lighting. Whole shooting took no longer than about seven seconds. These two were in the 40-60 lb range.
