$19 at Walmart but the story is priceless. Brought my dad to Ga to my buddys to shoot some hogs. He had a bad week with 2 misses then didnt see anymore. I had killed 8 so far so i asked him if he wanted to ride with me one night. We go to a spot i had put 50lbs of corn out at the night before and in my thermal i see a glow like NYC. There was 40 hogs easy in the pile. Ingive him my gun with a thermal scope and walk him to about 150yds from the 2 biggest that are seperated from the sounder. I watch in my monocular as he shoots and they take off like bulls on parade. Hes slingin barnes like they are free. Finally i see 1 standin alone by the edge and he sends it. It humps a little and heads into the swamp. I ride over and no blood anywhere. The last shot was about 400yds. I said well run the dogs tomorrow and see what we get on, do u have a knife. He said ill get 1, thats where the knife purchase comes in. Next morn we cut 3 dogs loose in that field and nothin. They cant get a track for snot. We head to a cut in the middle of the swamp and cut all 5 dogs loose and bam were on 1. They bay it up about 300yds from the field from last night. I grab its legs and dad stuck it. Lone boar with................. a graze mark right across its pecker! No BS o am 100% convinced it was the last shot and that poor bastard humped up because his mangood had been trimmed. That 308 musta dropped 6 7in at 400yds and thats what grazed him and left the slit along his underside. It was the only hog to exit the field over that way and size wise its a match. To us thats what happened and thats the story with our $19 knife.
Sorry its so long
