The largest animal taken on my hunt was this 200-pound pig. After closing the distance between us to about 125 yards, I dropped him with a single round of .22-250, which hit just in front of the gristle plate. The big ol' boar was planted where he once stood.
If you're going on a varmint hunt, there are few places better than Texas. The Lone-Star State sports no shortage of game—from coyotes and bobcats to big old wild hogs that weigh more than you do—and is rife with opportunity. Assistant Editor Connor McKibbin recently got a chance join the fine folks from Browning and Winchester for just such a venture. Get an inside look at his trip with the gallery embedded above.
