40 Hogs?? Bring on the sausage!
As the temperatures continue to drop, the critters become more active now than ever. The Outrigger group made a trip out to San Angelo, Texas a few weeks ago for a night hunting trip. A set up consisting of 5 Red Eye Predator Hunting Lights, spaced about 20 yards apart at the entrance to a large alfalfa field was the testing ground.
We sat and waited for about 45 minutes, and around 1:15 AM we saw a group of eyes coming in from the distance. About 10 minutes passed before we heard some snorting and we knew for sure that it was a pack of hogs. The hogs went right underneath one of the Red Eye lights (set to red), and we counted about 45 total hogs. We waited until the whole pack was in the alfalfa field and then switched all lights to white and let loose with the shotguns. The rest was history. We harvested 40 out of the 45 or so hogs and saved around 50 acres of irrigated alfalfa from being ruined. Needless to say, there will be lots of homemade sausage given out as Christmas gifts this year!
For all you hog hunters - we highly recommend the Red Eye Predator Hunting Light. They are currently on sale for the holidays and would make a great gift for that white elephant gift exchange or hunting family member you can't figure out what to get them. Make a note for gift orders and we'll include a little something extra!
