The video which ran for more than seven minutes was uploaded by Zubtec. It features a pig hunting outing by two guys in a field in Tottenham, NSW, which lasted for a couple of days. The video started early morning in an open field where there was a mob of black pigs near the line of trees. It seems like the hunters were scouting the pigs first and didn’t attempt any shots.

In the next scene the views looks like another part of the field, somewhere closer to the line of trees in the previous scene. Here, there were a couple pigs just grazing. Though they didn’t shoot one, and they were whispering while talking, the pigs somehow got spooked and ran away.

A couple of frames, which looked like the next day, the camera zooms in on one of the biggest pig and one of the hunters lets off a shot. It caught the pig in one loud, ringing shot, and it dropped where it stood. The whole time before this first kill, the hunters were whispering in the video.

After they showed the pig they killed, which they reckon was shot about 40 yards away, they explained their circumstances. The pig was shot right by the ear, which is why it was killed instantly. They mentioned the timestamp which was late in the afternoon, about 4 pm.



In the next scene it was so dark you can hardly see what was happening. Three loud shots rang in the dark and in the next scene, they were showing another pig killed. This one was a bit smaller, but because it was dark it took more shots and longer to kill it. Again they explained how their circumstances and the difficulties they faced the day before.

There were a few other kills on this excursion by the hunters in the same field, which they showed in a montage of images. Both used the Tikka rifle, two were T3s .308 and one was a T3 Varmint.
