Not too long after getting in the stand, I spotted a single hog under the feeder with my thermal spotting scope. By the time the rifle was up and running, there were several small hogs under the feeder and a couple of more trotting in to feed.

This feeder does not spit much corn and I figured the hogs would not be under the feeder long, so despite having some trouble getting situated for the shot, I took the earliest shot I thought I would make well. I didn't shoot very much too soon as most of the corn was gone by the time of the shot.

I hit the boar broadside behind the shoulder and the sow was just a bonus hog, the bullet hitting her straight on at the top of the back and along the side (fragmented bullet).

The Nosler Accubond 129 gr. bullet performed well. It was fragmented as it exited the boar, peppering the sow with pieces, but still had plenty of punch to blast through her thoracic hump, breaking the spines (spinous processes) off of at least 3 thoracic vertebrate before entering the body cavity and traveling down into the abdomen, apparently rupturing the intestines.

Yeah, the video really helped with my understanding of what happened to the 2nd hog. I could not figure out how it had an entry wound on one side with no exit, and then had shrapnel entry wounds on the other side.

I have read for years where people say that bullets do strange things, and they certainly do, sometimes. Sometimes, what they do is really strange because we don't have the benefit of being able to replay the action to see the situation. At the time of the shot, I could not have told you that there was the sow standing behind the boar, facing me. I knew other hogs were around and no other targets to worry about (such as livestock), so my focus was on placing the shot on the boar.
