Hi to all on the board,I think this is my first post the this board but I think you guys need to see what you mite run into this deer season. One of the guys I hunt with and I went out to check a few deer stands on Friday after noon .The first time we seen him, he was standing in the middle of the trail.I thought it was a black lab at first,because we don't have wild pigs this far north. We talked about the encounter while we check the stands. After checking the stands we were walking out and found him standing on the side of the trail. I could not shoot him because there was a tree in the way. He seen me and turned and ran over the hill. I walked in, to look over the hill to see if I could see him. I walked around a stump and here he was standing about 10 feet from me in the small pines. As I turned to shoot the turned and gave me a shot. I hit him a little high but behind the shoulder. We backed out and returned in the morning to find him still alive. When we found him he charged and I finished him with the 44 mag.I would have like to finish him with the bow but I didn't want to get the other guys that were helping me to get hurt. He is about a 120-130 pounds and is about a year old. This is the first wild pig I know of that has been harvested in Oneida county.
