Playing with Camera in Blind

Took these photos last year while pig hunting in Texas. The quality isn’t the best, but that’s not the point. I have seen many people take exquisite photos through rifle scopes. Since the action was dull, I decided to pass the time by seeing what I could do? Is it easy or hard? As you can see, I didn’t do …

Benefits of a Sandbag with Rifles

This is a little trick I picked up quite a while ago. I always have 2 little “sandbags” with me when I am doing precision rifle work. Doesn’t matter if I am hunting pigs in Texas.

Confirming Zero Texas Pig

One thing that continues to amaze me as I progress along in my hunting career are the amount of hunters who not confirm rifle zeros after traveling!? After making it to the outfitter and getting some sleep, I was happy to discover a 100 yard zeroing range just steps form the bunkhouse porch. Sweet. Two shots. Very quick. 270wby. 130 …

Texas Heart Shot

A couple of us went down to Texas for some pig hunting. Here is a 230lb pig I shot with a Blaser R8 chambered in 270 Weatherby Magnum. The bullet is a TTSX. The scope is a S&B PMII 3-12x MTC just like the USMC sniper scopes. Minus the markings. The pig crossed in front of my blind while it …
