Hello my friends!
Firstly, I would like to apologize to everyone for the involuntary disappearance. There were several changes in my life recently and there is little time for my hunting activities. There is no time left to write here at WHH but slowly things are returning to normal and I got a little time to tell another adventure of hunting here in southern Brazil.
On the last weekend I was in my hunting area because I was missing the field environment. Here in Brazil we are in winter and the temperature has dropped considerably. I really like the winter and since we are with the right clothes, it's OK to face the cold.
On the farm where I hunt there is plenty of food for hogs and only now, when food gets scarce is that the hogs are back to eating corn in the feeders. And then so you can return to topple hogs again. On this farm, I have several friends who have leased areas to hunt and most of them also is getting down your hogs. But we look to history ...
I got in my blind around 05:00 pm and sat to face the cold and the night. The day was clear and I took to be enjoying the wildlife at the feeder. Several doves and birds make a party eating corn scattered on the floor. At around 06:00 began to get dark and it's time to start the activity of hogs in feeders. But had to wait until 9:20 pm for luck to smile at me. On the fence around the feeder, I have two motion sensors that help me in the hunt for dark nights it is impossible in anything approaching. To assist me in nocturnal hunt I use a flashlight or a ND3 and that night I was with the flashlight attached to the weapon.
I was distracted looking at the stars when a sensor began to vibrate and then the other sensor also began to show signs. I figured the hog crossed running inside the feeder and turned on the flashlight on the second sensor. I could not see anything and turned the focus of the flashlight to the other side. At this time the beam illuminated a large hog. When he felt the light, he began to move. So I corrected the aim and fired. The smoke of the shot hurt my view of the riflescope but I realized that he had been hit but he came into a place overgrown and I could not see him anymore. But I knew he had been well achieved. After a few minutes I decided to get off the blind, and look for the hog. Not long after, found him lying some 20 meters from where I had achieved! It was a beautiful male hog of about 70 kg. The barbecue was guaranteed! The bullet entered just above the right leg of the hog, broke his heart and left leg above the other, opening a huge hole.
The next day, finding my friends on the farm, I saw that they had also been lucky and secured their hogs.
Here are some photos to illustrate the result of hunting.

Me again, between two 4x4 and some hogs.
You are seeing the stickers?
Here in Brazil we have a predator a little smaller than the American coyote but so voracious as the coyote. Look what a friend was able to shoot coyotes ... leveraging our hogh he struck near the feeder and the result of the attack was ... so was the hog!
