Shots Fired!!!

No photos....sorry about that.
My cousin Clark is a great guy and a softie at heart. A few months ago he trapped a wild hog or two (see POST here) with a bit of drama.
Now that he fully understands how vicious wild hogs can be, he's decided to take a more....well....not so close-up and personal approach.
 The other day Clark informed me that he had borrowed another cousin's rifle to do a little hog hunting.  Well not real hunting. Some wild hogs have been rooting up his backyard. They are cunning, have great hearing and smell and are very fast. Clark says he made sure the rifle was fully loaded when he placed it near his backdoor.
At 11PM, he quietly open the backdoor but nothing was amiss. At 2:45AM he had better luck. There were about 3 adults and loads of babies rooting away.
I can just picture what Clark was telling me. He eased the rifle into position, took aim and ....... click!!
Yes, click!!! A shell was not in the chamber. Upon hearing that small click, the hogs took off for the hills. By the time Clark was able to fire, he was shooting at the night. Needless to say, he was very disappointed.
I told him that those hogs would return in a few nights.
I was wrong about the time of night....they showed up this morning in my field. I quickly called Clark, who being a bit more prepared this time, tipped into a good position and fired....rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat!
Sigh........we need to work on the aim.
Better luck next time Cuz!!!!

Omgosh, his almost reads like a comic book. I can see it played out in my mind. I'm sorry though that he was not able to get him a hog or two. I've heard they can be mean and destructive. The Saga continues.
xx, Carol

That was good for a laugh, but my experience with wild pigs is you want to be where they can't get you if they get mad! LOL

;-}

Don't count the days, make the days count!
