Here's the story. Last day/night in camp, leaving next morning around 10:00 a.m. Everything is packed including my hunting boots except for one rifle and some cold weather gear, goose down jacket, camo pants, long johns and headgear, basically all ready to launch for the airport. PH says, let's go out on the truck and get some springhares for the trackers. I grab the .17 Fireball, my hunting partner grabs his 17HMR. It's COLD. We're riding around for a couple hours whacking springhares when Holy Shit Batman, there's a nice warthog. PH says "Take him, take him, take him". He's about 75 yards away staring at the spotlight. I level the rifle, catch him in the scope, zoom to ten power and put the tip of the green triangle of the Trijicon below his eyeball and pull the trigger. THAWUMP, he is down hard. We jumped a fence and he' laying there dead. PH says put another in him, one never knows. Not arguing with him, I oblige. Second PH while loading him on the truck says, "Man, you got me working to the last minute". Turned out to be a successful not, a pile of springhares and one warthog.

some more [wart]hog 'art'.....;)


NEED!

Observe, (OP).
Warthogs are not ugly, they are Cool.
I haven’t been to Africa or seen a real one but they are cool looking and affordable trophy’s.
The Warthog in my avatar is Maybe 8” high, I’m not home. Carved timber possibly made in Africa and missing his tusks, $20 at a garage sale. I just need a real one now.
There is a .308 and .458wm for comparison.
Aussie feral pigs are ugly and need management.

I like my pork processed, cured and smoked. Do they make Bacon from Warthogs? Ham? Serious question.

Yes you can make bacon and ham from warthog, I have made both on several occasions, you just need a nice fat one for belly bacon

One ancient Kalihari warthog. I really enjoy hunting warthogs!

Hey boss wanted to inquire about the .308 rifle you have for sell can you send me payment information. I look forward to hearing back from you. Thank you.

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
