Despite a shot to the neck that penetrated through some 20-22" inches of flesh, undoubtedly through the heart area (but not the lungs), this hog still managed to run 20 yards or so. To date, this is probably the largest hog I have taken solo and solo was unfortunate because I am going to have to go back tomorrow in order to try to recover the sucker.
Loc: West of Fort Worth, Texas
Brian: Good shot, and good vid. When I shot my huge hog last year, I was also solo. I had to chain pull it with my tractor. With the mud in the creek bed, you are going to have a tough time. Be careful. Tom

Whew! That's a big one. At least, around here in central Texas it would sure be considered large. I now bring a two wheel hand truck along when I hunt to move 'em, and it sure comes in handy. It's a little difficult to maneuver over rough ground though, and might not work well where you were when you shot that one.
Tell Angry Bird Thanks! for the shout out. I'm hoping to be released for limited walking in a few more weeks and then graduate back into regular activities (for me that's hog hunting, my wife is anxious for me to take her dancing again).
You can never have too much ammo — unless you're swimming.
how do you know it was 270lbs if you hadn't even gotten it out of the brush to weigh it? Congrats on the hunt, nice pig. But you'd have to he one HELL of a boy to drag 270lbs of dead weight up outa that creek by yourself. I know I know....I'm being a kill joy.
For some strange reason the link for this video isn't showing up so I went you your YouTube channel to see it. Initially watched the wrong one, but heard your commentary on the sow in that one doing "the Curly shuffle" upon introduction to your Grendel round. That is the best description I've heard on how to describe that activity.
