I have been wondering for a long time. I know if you shoot an elk in the back leg it can't get up so you can go up to it and shoot it. Since a hog is worthless if you pick up by its back legs will a hog be the same way as an elk if you shoot it in the back leg?

Never heard of that....seems like a waste of meat and a harder shot than just making a kill shot in the first place....

A hog will just drag itself off....regular kill shots....head and chest area....

Two weeks ago I shot a big boar on the run. First shot shattered it back leg and it didnt lose a step! Second shot landed him a dirt nap!

Nope. I've seen a 3-legged hog missing a rear leg. Heard of others. Like SnakeWrangler says, just make the kill shot and be done with it.

I see , a hog will run with a leg bone shot in half ,doesn't matter which leg it is
Best shot is to drop it first shot ,,,,,,,head or neck , ,,, or heart ,lung shot, the later probably
Going to run about 50 yards

Shot a boar a few years ago on the run by our tank first shot was quartering too me hit on front shoulder and angled back into guts. Second shot was a fleeting attempt to stop him before brush line I shot for texas heart shot on a running hog... it didn't anchor him. Little bit later tracked him and the second shot took his back right foot off at the hock and it didn't slow him down a bit and that was after a 150 grain 270 through the boiler room.

This image shows two of the first three shots on a hog, all quartering away. He is already dead at this point, but does not know it. He was knocked down and got back up.


This shows one of the first three shots (likely shot #3) where it exited the hind leg after ruining the tibia. The other 3 shots are quartering away shots after it changed direction and tried to get away. He got about 40 yards with a broken hind leg, during which time he was knocked down a second time and got back up.

Shoot it at the base of the ear. If you ca t make that shot then go for heart/lungs

Inhumane: without compassion for misery or suffering. Cruel.
If done accidently, that's different. Have respect for whatever animal your hunting. Kill it quickly.
