I've heard wild hogs and pigs can't look up very easily and it's the best way to stay out of their vision by being above them.

he was a cheeky bastard Don he walked off calmly with the cows and calves hoping I didn't notice him

My friend has a ranch in the Big Island and he says they tear up large areas. Sometimes digging, rooting, or whatever they do. Basically end up with a large crater of dig up dirt. This ranch is more of a homestead, so the tearing up is mostly a nuisance.  

What’s the main concern for your property? Ruining pastures? Competing with the livestock for food?

i thought of you last  night when i rocked up to my old mans house. I got out of the truck at 7pm in the dark and this big black steer was standing  right behind the truck. Never even heard the cunt or saw him when i pulled in. Fucken thing gave me a hell of a fright as it was pitch black and unexpected. apprently this one cunt plays up in the dark and knows how to get over electric fences.  Then there was a possum eating fish out of the cats bowl at 8 pm and didnt give two fucks.  And there are  bloody pukekos all over the front lawn and not giving two shits about humans.

The 22lr is gonna sing tonight. time to restore law and order on this farm.  The old man goes to bed at 8pm and all these critters start acting up.

Don't get me started on the stray cat and four kittens living in a tyre   

oh, and i got rammed by a goat on the passenger side door. fucken hell.  Fucken hell. been away three years and animals think they are top of the food chain.

this sow soaked up some lead before she expired

first shot was to the big black bit that filed the scope
2nd and 3rd were texas heart shots as she crawled away
and a final shot to the back of the head

a funny story about a black cat
saw a black cat creeping away from a trough today out of the corner of my eye as I was shutting a gate
we both played the if you don't look at me I won't look at you game
it was being played successfully until he heard the bolt closing on the No4 in 3oh270
he took off at mk1 as I lined him up in the scope and squeezed the trigger at about the moment in time when the 150 grain projectile was due to impact with his head there was a sudden and dramatic change in direction, working the action at speed I fired again and saw dirt kick up just behind him so I quickly worked the action and fired again seeing dirt fly up close enough that he needed a change of grundies, shots 4 and five also caused a colour change in his underwear.
I walk over to where I last saw him hoping to find a body or at least a blood trail as I thought the first shot hit him which caused the change in direction, looking around some fallen timber I saw some blood and then noticed I was almost standing on top of what I thought was a cat carcass, it was then that he turned and looked at me with a bloody messed up face I closed the bolt to deliver the coup de grace when the bloody thing took off again at mk4 I fired again as he bolted down a gully and again as he came up the other side the 8th shot missed him by a mile as I was a bit eager and fucked up the shot, the ninth shot saw him change course again with his tail going in the opposite direction
I ended up with a pocket full of empty shells and half a cat tail, but I will sleep well tonight knowing that with half his face missing he won't be killing any more birds or lizards
