Tim Kennedy I think I heard you once say that you’ve shot like thousands of hogs was that right

Tim: Yes

Brad: I think that makes you the foremost authority on hog hunting that I’ve had on the show so welcome to Gearbox Talk man

Tim: Well just on the show but in in texas i’m i’m amateur hour

Brad: It’s like running run of the mill Texan right there alright man let’s talk a little bit about your setup I know you do literally all types of hog hunting bow night day helicopter you can throw that in but what’s your rifle set up for hog hunting

Tim: So I have two approaches one’s kind of a the nighttime hunt so I have a variable power optic so you know we’ll we’ll set up at sunset I love leupold I think they’re they’re the best I measure an optic off of how it performs in that hour of sunrise and sunset all optics all glass in the middle of the day with full light look really really similar but it’s at like 6 15 in the morning when the sun hasn’t crested the horizon yet and you have that weird blue light coming in that’s when you really see the difference in a high level scope to a low level scope so I have a laser on this and so for for a sunset hunt for example with 556 on with this mark six variable power one to six power illuminated reticle suppressor I can get a hunt I can get a couple pigs on the ground before the sun sets at you know like a feeder and then the sun sets and I still am able to hunt for two or three hours after it so in a just on like an evening hunt you know you can put eight to ten pigs on the ground before you even get into the night time then i’m gonna hop into polaris or you know like even a go-kart which are really useful I think a lot of people don’t think about taking a golf cart taking the top off and taking that front windshield off and they’re really quiet and you just cruise around put some some wheels on it so with that you can spend as much money as you want on thermals and you know pvs 15s two tube…
