    Kingofwylietx you were right we saw the herd at about midnight. We saw a herd of 30 plus. We stalked them on foot for about an hour. We got within 30 yards of them and unleashed the fury(actually shot two times). I had a bit of a problem, it was very humid and night vision and rifle scopes kept on fogging up. I also forgot HP and just had FMJ with me for the AR. I saw tons of blood but no big hogs, we shot them right on a fence line some ran through the fence. I shot two piglets with my Kel-Tec 9mm. One piglet came close enough to catch. I hope to go again in a couple of weeks, if anyone else wants to go just let me know its free. My buddy that owns the land has shot 11 confirmed this year. They have been tearing up his fences, he wants to get rid of them. Here is the pic DCortez [url]http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j57/lancebaxter79/062009_013500.jpg[/URL]

    DFW area.....Wylie.
    You can hunt them in the day too, it tends to be much harder. The best times are from a little before sunset all the way to early morning. They move around a lot more at night, but plenty of folks have seen them in the day.

    Damned if y'all weren't closer I would take y'all up on this. What kind of night vision are you using? Once I get my suppressor on the .300 Whisper that's totally night vision capable I think we could have a very fun night.

    My night vision is a cheap Gen I spoting scope with IR light. I put an Infared bulb in my stinger flashlight it makes all the differance. I want some night vision goggles.:cool:
