Wasn't planning to hunt today but all of a sudden I found myself with a few hours to spare so i took the opportunity to go sit in my blind.
Since I'm planning to turn my Model 70 .25 into my low power, around the house gun it was only fair I would give her one more chance in the Hog woods.
A few weeks back I added a bump bucket ( made of a Miracle grow container ) to my feeder location,
the bump bucket is at the 3 o'clock position in relation of the feeder at the 12 O'clock
Winds comes straight from the 12 O'clock direction so the 3 O'clock is still very conducive.
I was in the blind for 3 hours when two nice brothers came in,
didn't go to the feeder but be-lined to the bump,
I re-positioned myself to the side of the blind and I had immediately both a side and a straight shot on both boars,...that doesn't happen
So I was trying to make up my mind when something spooked them and they took of hard.
Dang !!!!! that's it, there goes my one chance of the day
I go back to the position overlooking the feeder hoping that some other hogs would come in.
20 minutes later the two brothers came back to the Bump bucket,.....WOW that doesn't happen often either
This time I took the first shot opportunity given
........The Model 70 was shooting the 31gr Baracuda.
