Pretty Planet Person Perforates Pork with Pleasure!

Steven K. Ledin,

Never has a swine met a more happy end than to be poked by a .450 Bushmaster out of the slender fingers of Kate, our resident hunting babe and pig killer extrordinaire. The deadly omnivore met its end almost as fashionably as Kate the trigger-puller was dressed, and expired nearly immediately after the permanent cavity of a 250 grain Hornady FXT moving along at about 2200 FPS left him breathless. Being the caring, loving creature that Kate is, she quickly followed up with the coup de grace from her .44 magnum. She whipped out the 629 Mountain gun and tripped her trigger, launching the 240 grain XTP, smashing through a spot just behind the hog's ear. End of pig.

The hunt was sponsored by EOTech, and their night vision, thermal units, and EOTech sights were used exclusively. It was held at  the excellent North Star Outfitters in Winona, Texas. The weather was warm, and since her OPMOD PAC Bag carried everything she needed, she was hands-free to handle her rifle. A lovelier killer you have never seen. The stuff of movies. She used an excellent handheld EOTech X50 throughout her hunt.  

A great time was had by all, and pork was successfully harvested by all. Come to North Star Outfitters to poke your own pork!
