Stirred up a sounder of hog the other day and one of them came running my way so I took him with a Fiocchi rifled slug. Whacked him right between the eyes, and the slug exited his throat. I found it on the ground next to him. He didn't move a muscle after the shot! The slug must have pureed his brain. Never seen such a "dead right there" shot on these hogs, and I've taken a whole bunch of them in the last 10 years.

It wasn't really good shooting on my part. It was 90% luck, and 10% good fortune. He was about 20-25 yards away, heading right at me, and I just did a "snap shot" and happened to connect. He wasn't coming after me or anything, he just happened to run my way in the excitement of the moment. And I happened to hit him in a critical spot, with the right load, in spite of the excitement of the moment. Only the person who does my laundry will know how excited I was. . . blush

Yeah, Ramsey; it's kinda nice and rather rare to have them drop within their own shadow. As I mentioned, I've busted a bunch of these devils in last decade or so, but never had one give it up completely like this one!

aim Great shot.

Over the years I have found that a one ounce slug, at close range, redefines kill zone just about all North America game.
