Hello everyone,

Here some Red River Hog of the season.

The first one was taken in earlier February we were heading to a salt lick when the tracker heard a noice of Red River Hog in the forest. We approached slowly when I spotted a hog in a small swamp then an other came out I tried to get the client in position couldn't see them at 20 yards... So we change of position to have more light and finally could spot them and took the shot one this nice male who drop on his track the second did move. Suddenly 6 other Reds Rivers Hogs came out and were eating in a front of us.

48 kg (105 lbs)

This one was hunted just before dark we were coming back from a salt lick by foot when in the big opening 12 Reds Rivers Hogs were crossing I made the decision to cut them before they will enter in the big bako. We walked fast and got in position the Hogs were stopped in small island of savanna woodland. They started to come out the client was on the sticks ready and the first was the big male on my oder the client pulled the trigger and my a very good shot just behind the shoulder. The Hog run 60 yards and collapse.
70kg(154lbs)

The next was hunted a long some small waterhole looking for buffalo tracks when the team heard some noice next to the water 3 Red Rivers Hogs were taking their bath. Everybody got in position the hogs didn't notice us and the client made a perfect shot and dropped him.
68kg(150lbs)

The next one was hunted in June

We were crossing a small opening between bako and smaller island of forest when 5 Reds Rivers Hogs came out trotting of one of them. Use to driven hunt the client didn't have to shoot a moving animals when I told him to take the last one he made a good shot before the hog entered in the bako.

The Red River Hog is very good meat more compare to the warthog and very distinct smell.

Wow.
If money & travel were no object, given every huntable species on the planet, THIS would still be my number 1 choice hunt.
