New D-740 Gen 2 SHP with PIGS AND YOTES. Action shots!!

Postby Clutch » Mon Jul 10, 2006 6:54 pm

One of my customers posted this report of the D-740 Gen 2 SHP. Thanks again Wes, GOOD shootin'!

I will posting the shootin' shots soon as Wes gives them to me! :D

"Crazy weekend at the ranch, freaking pigs everywhere.Friday night I was scanning(D740 ) the wheat fields behind the house and saw a large group of pigs about 1100 yards out.(almost full moon)So, I started walking( in flipflops) towards them, I lay down prone about 250 yards and shoot the largest one( over 200 pounds), then chaos insues.Pigs running eveywhere, the big one which I hit ran back in the brush line, dissappearing into the night.I went back the next morning, and followed blood until she crossed on to another ranch, never found it.
Fast foward to Saturday evening,I headed out to another wheat/milo field as the Sun set, and parked on the edge(The roof of my Ford Crew Cab makes a great shooting platform) and waited for dark.After about a hour of stareing at cows, 20 or more pigs came out west of me and a stock tank.I sprinted to the tank dam with a camera, and my AR/D740.I snapped some pics and waited.The pigs moved right into the cattle.So I went back to truck and waited.The pigs were at my 12 o'clock and moving east(but still in with the cows)I was scanning the field with my PVS14 and to my left at 200 yards pops up a coyote.I scrambled to get my camera and take a few pics thru the D740, then pow no more yote.The shot didn't bother the pigs or cows, guess the suppressor works.Once the pigs cleared the cows I shot, two, then a third as it ran towrds me, I shot it at less than a 100 yards.I then put my gear up and drove back to the ranch house.Once there I "had" to scan behind the house again, and guess what, more pigs at the same place as the night before.But this time I had on boots and pants.I grabbed my PVS 14 and rifle then head out with the wife in tow.We walked within 300 yards and watched, that's when she informed my she took out her contacts eariler.(great, a blind, half drunk red head in the middle of wheat field full of pigs)Needless to say she wasn't much of a spotter.I shot a large sow and she went down hard.(the pig, not my wife)NOW it gets crazy.All but 1 pig ran off in different directions, it was around 30-40 pounds, making a hell of alot of noise.Then out of no where comes a coyote and starts attacking the lone pig, the fight insues(all while I am watching thru my D740)It was simply amazing watch the coyote and pig go at it, finally the coyote got the juggular and the squelling stopped.I let the coyote walk out of respect.
I will post some pics tomorrow,( camera cables at office)Sorry but I didn't get any pics of the fight, or morning after pics(Buzzards beat me to it)"
