So, I had a thread on my lil marlin 17vs, been tickling it, trying to get it just right. Very satisfied with it. This afternoon, sat out for a while , figured maybe I could get a nice headshot on a meat pig. Sho nuff, the squad came by, 22 total. They hung around a minute, then started leaving, 2 stuck around and they were perfect grillin size. One shot to the dome did the trick. Sure am enjoying that lil 17. Got a rifle basix trigger on the way, then gonna upgrade the scope. But, this lil sow , I’d say 80lbs or so, was less than 20 yds from my stand when I shot her.
