Default 22 Hogs in One Night (Video)

We appreciate all the e-mails as we have killed 446 hogs with a rifle at night this year and 800+ using all hog control methods combined including trapping and ear tag transmitters.

Attached is the video from our best night in 2009. We are hog hunting at night as a population control measure in the crop damaged fields of SW Georgia. We killed 22 of the 30+ hogs destroying a freshly planted corn field in March.

The video is filmed through a military-grade 640x480 resolution thermal scope mounted on a DPMS Panther Arms .308 semi-automatic rifle. The shooter behind the thermal reticle is a retired Soldier from the US Army Marksmanship Unit. There are two other less experienced hunters using .308 Browning BARs on these moving targets.

On each group stalk, the DPMS will take the center hog as the Brownings engage the far left and far right targets. On each single stalk, the DPMS will back-up the other hunters when they miss or injure a hog.

Keep in mind the shooting is from three separate rifles, not just the DPMS. You can hear the difference between each rifle report to determine who is shooting.

That by far is the best shooting I've seen. I wish I could find a place to hunt hogs at night, never tried it, always wanted too, could never afford a hunting trip for $400-$800.

Yes. We always target the adults first so the juveniles will sometimes run 75 yards and huddle together waiting on adult direction. Normally you can put one bullet through two or three piglets at the same time. It is difficult to tell where one ends and another begins in the thermal signature.

Ten pounds of pork on the run at 75 yards is not an easy shot with a rifle either. These March piglets would have been breeding this month (November) if we weren't so efficient.

Jager, awesome video! I love it!

The camera is mounted on the scope and we see exactly what the shooter sees? Is the scope a standard mil-dot reticle? The reason I ask is because there is a lot to be learned from watching this video on how to lead moving targets, and an ex soldier from the MU is a good person to learn from.

No, the reticle on a PAS-13 is not a standard Mil-Dot.

I shot 150,000 shotgun shells at moving targets during my nine years at the Army Marksmanship Unit. Your eyes should be focused on the leading edge of the target with the barrel only in your peripheral vision. Your brain (with practice) will automatically put the shotgun in the right position using the correct lead.

Shooting running hogs with a rifle uses the same concept. Your eyes should be focused on the hog's head with the reticle only in your peripheral vision. Your brain (with practice) will automatically put the rifle in the right position using the correct lead.

It is important to keep your barrel moving the same speed as the target, even after you pull the trigger to "follow through" with your shot.

That is so cool I would love to learn to shoot that well. As a still marksman I am pretty good I guess but as Pea Eye said in Lonesome Dove I got to take the time to make careful aim.

Good work guys

Great Video Jager. I can say it was a pleasure to meet you and glean from your knowledge when you were in Tifton a few months ago when we ate supper at M.W.'s farm house. Keep the videos coming, they are fun to watch as well as excellent at showing proper technique for shooting at moving targets.

What range of background temperature do you need to get that kind of contrast?

The background temperature is not as important if using high resolution/low pixalation thermal equipment. The outside temperature during this video was around 50-60 degrees.

Most civilian 320x240 resolution thermal scopes are manufactured with a pixal size of 53 microns. It takes a military-grade pixal size of 38 microns or better to use for hog or coyote hunting. The JAGERô thermal scope used in this video has a 28 micron pitch. This is the main reason the contrast looks so good.
