You'll almost feel sorry for the hogs in this video being pursued by a hunter using a suppressed .50 Beowulf sporting a thermal scope.
We've already established that hunting hogs at night with a thermal scope is a pretty darn effective way to conduct hog control. Well, this hunter took things a step further in his hog population control efforts by mounting a thermal scope on a suppressed .50 Beowulf. If the odds were stacked against the hogs before, they really didn't stand a chance under those circumstances.
Those big bullets hit hard and dished out some serious pain on the hogs. Since he was using a suppressor, it also took the hogs a while to figure out just what the heck was going on. They didn't know which way to run!
Watch the video to really see the fur fly!
If you've wondered about the effectiveness of a suppressed .50 Beowulf on feral hogs, this video should have put any concerns to rest. I almost felt sorry for those hogs.
I'm sure the farmers in the area appreciate the efforts of this guy and others like him. Keep up the good work!
