    In 2011 this old warthog caused some consternation for my guide and I. I shot it with my .45-70, but the shot was a bit low. It stormed us, with me frantically reloading my single shot and the guide hiding behind me. It suddenly turned around and fled in the opposite direction. After following its tracks for about 100metres, we found it lying down. Despite throwing a stout branch at it and even prodding it in the eye with my rifle's muzzle, it did not move. My guide bent down and placed his hand on the warthog's backside...it suddenly came to life, making the ugliest squealing, roaring sound and snapping its head up in my direction as I was standing in front of it. Luckily I hadn't unloaded my Ruger No.1 yet and took a frantic snapshot at its head, while trying to keep my legs out of range of those tusks. I think I was in the air, with my legs curled up, with the riflestock never making contact with my shoulder when I fired.

    When I turned around, my guide was gone. I spotted him some 20 metres away, eyes as big as saucers.

    The recent one with the lions and the wartie looks strange. Out of focus in the back round and the foreground but crystal clear for the animals.. Photo shopped??

    The rest of them and the stories are fantastic!

    ak mike--i dont know if that photo with the lions is photo shopped or not...

    these though are not [lol]

    a friend recently asked me to do a delicate and trustworthy job for him on his game ranch..

    no matter how he tried,the warthogs seem to have an answer eventually to all types of fencing..

    DSCN0956.JPG

    they are eating all his prize and expensive black impala's daily supplement pills/food,resulting in them loosing condition during the harsh winter months

    the request was that i cull these warthogs from among-st these [above my pay-grade] black impala with responsible and precision shooting, using a suppressed 300 win mag with a high magnifying scope.
    to say that i was a bit nervous' to take on this job is a total misunderstanding of the situation.

    DSCN0870.jpg

    though it were not that difficult shots, its the constant keeping track of the scattered herd [the 20 animals are not all together in their huge bush-veld camp]

    many a warthog have been left alone due to some possible impala walking into the fire lane in the background

    eventually some success were achieved

    DSCN0942.JPG

    but alas,this 'relieve' of taking off only some warthog will only be temporarily--warthogs also flourish on these power meals and at this stage will surely multiple and be back in huge numbers.
    Although I've not contribute much to the culling of the BIG warthog population at that particular spot,the trust to let me 'loose' with a rifle amongst 20 rare black impala [at about R 200 000 apiece ??] was priceless!
    This trust between fellow hunters can not be measured in normal terms!

    I'm not sure if this will help but my Uncle used to raise hogs back in the day. He had a normal fence upright and another one flat and tied in the middle of the vertical BUT the horizontal was buried 6-8" under the dirt. Hogs would 'root' at the vertical then find the horizontal and give up. Basicly an inverted T.

    it would probably help

    practically its a 15 000 ha property with camps inside and a fence around [outside] through rocky mountains and steep slopes 60% of the way.i will inform him though--thanks!

    It might not help with these 'hog's' but it couldn't hurt.

    Hardly Bluey! This was on the family homestead down in Michigan. Central part of the USA.
    Our wombat problems were nil.
