Default Should I?

NV sitn on a .308 by the back door.

They are 150 yds from the house.

There's a trap baited & set 40 yds from feeder.

I'm already in bed. Think I'll wait & see how the trap plays out in the am.

If I was already in bed I doubt I would get up to whack one pig when I had possibility of catching multiples

Never pass on the opportunity to kill a pig. I had to relearn that again this year.

Trap them and use a 22, it's cheaper.

Trapped 3 last Tuesday and shot one Friday night. This was right outside my neighborhood, I love having the permission to hunt pigs real close to home. 000 buckshot makes them pigs sit and lay down real quick.

Believe me, I've shot more than one pig wearing nothing but leopard print boxer briefs & flip flops while standing in pitch darkness on my back porch.
