Default Pigs Are Dumb...

...when they canít smell ya!!

This is me yesterday afternoon. Made a sweep through the place, on foot, checking feeders and cameras. Second spot, I was checking the camera and this happens. I was down wind but completely in the open other than standing on their side of a cut off telephone pole. I finally cut the video off and stood there for another few minutes until they moved off.

Disregard my corny hand gestures. Lol

A few answers ahead of time...

No, I donít need an AR.
No, I didnít have a bow with me.
Yes, I had a gun with me.

Funny part is if you had your bow they would have cleared out 75 yards out on your way in. Some how they know.

You should lay down, cover yourself in mud, and grab a smaller one when it eats corn off you. I've always wanted to try that. And of course video it.

I've had them do similar stuff but nothing quite like that. I routinely walk up to them when I'm checking pastures with my rifle. I do that at night, too.

Impressive. You left out if you needed Tannerite or wanting to gut shoot.
But you pretty much called it from the beginning of the post
Great target-rich environment. You must go through a heck of a lot of broadheads.
