Daughter takes nice young boar with 7mm Bullberry Login/Join 



posted


Home for just a few more days before heading back to Michigan, Gracy put the 7mm Bullberry to good use early yesterday evening. A sounder of medium-sized hogs decided to visit the lighted feeder, but one of them did not get to leave.

A high shoulder shot with the 120 grain Ballistic Tip dropped the young boar on the spot. She was hoping for an opportunity for a double, but the hogs were skittish and lingering in the fringes of the solar-powered light. So when opportunity finally presented itself, she made the most of it and took out the first available target.

Congratulations, Gracie! Good shooting and continuing the family tradition!

Bobby, I think we ve seen pictures of everyone in the family, with pictures of hogs they’ve shot, except the cat. Is he just a slow learner or are purposely holding him back?

Like the old Justin Wilson comedy routine from the 70s about the Louisiana Dad who'd only let his right-handed son fling rocks at squirrels left-handed because he "tore up too damn much meat," we've had to throttle Marmalade and hold him back on the hogs for now. He's just a little too lethal. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

About Marmalade's "lethality":

In early 2021, when Marmalade finally begin to trust me enough to sit next to me on the deck, I did my best to try and get him to rest as he always seems so exhausted just from trying to stay alive in the wild. I don't know why, but one night I placed my hand on his side and began whispering to him a song called "Pense em Mim." It seemed to work as he slept soundly for several minutes. This routine went on for a few weeks, and each time, he seemed to get more comfortable and slept even longer. Much has changed since them, and he now spends lots of time indoors. But sometimes that wandering fever strikes. If it's safe, we let him out, but if it's late at night or if coyotes have been active (like now during mating season), we try and keep him inside. But he'd pace incessantly and meow LOUDLY. So one night, I decided to play that song for him. Almost magically, he calmed down and went to sleep. The family likely thought I was imagining this (or had lost my mind!) until they all witnessed it as well. The song is short and simple and in Portuguese. But it's instant melatonin for our big orange furbaby.

Pense em Mim

Congrats Gracy!

Marmalade looks pretty comfy, I guess it's true that music soothes the savage beast laugh

Bobby,
I can see the lethal qualities in that beast! The truly fierce ones are almost causal about their killer instinct….

That is amazing about the song calming him like that. They really are fur babies!
