My afternoon hunt was at the Taj-Mahal deer stand in a huge opened field. I have hunted off of this stand before and seen deer so early in the morning that I could barely make them out.

As seen in front of the stand and to the right and left was a very huge cotton field.
This is where I saw about 12 hogs in the green next to the woods appear at 100 yards on back side of stand. I noticed 3 large hogs and the rest were smaller ones. I took aim with my .270 and hit the one that stood out, which was a black hog facing me and hit her right in the head and she dropped. After I shot, they all scattered and was able to pull off another shot and hit a smaller pig and it dropped. This was about 5:10 in the afternoon and nothing else came out.
I zoomed in with my camera and got a picture of the black sow that I shot before it got dark.
Picture of the little hog I shot back at camp at the skinning pole.
