So I was out one last time this weekend....decided I was going to take a doe since I hadnt seen anything good this year. Doe was at about 200 yds across a pasture I hunt and I took the shot. Looking through the scope at the deer with one eye I see movement with the other below me in the field. I see its a pig, dial my scope back and take the shot on the run without even really thinking. I see it turn towards me and drop as I racked in another round, but it was down within a second. I look back at my deer and its gone, then back at the pig and I lost him. Drove down where I thought I saw it drop and nothing, turns out he was a lot further away then I thought, about 50yds further back and when I got there I about [censored] my pants...

I couldnt do squat...too big. A couple hours later my bro in law and two uncles came out to help load him up, then onto the cleaning station. 250 on the scale, caped him out and dropped himoff for mounting. Biggest pig I have ever seen in person and a beast. I cant imagine what this thing could do if I had him cornered.

I hit him just behind the shoulder and it knocked his heart out the other side but didnt penetrate all the way through. When I caped him out I found a huge exit wound in his rib cage and a mushroomed sst 165gr in between his ribs and skin and a piece of the heart. He was down instantly which is amazing as his skin was about 1.5 inches thick and hard as a rock. Hes gonna look gnarly onthe wall, cant wait....

There's a fine line between BRAVE ... and STUPID.

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.

I really like that bullet. I've discussed in other threads on this forum. It's a killer.

That is an Ugly beast. The meaner looking they are the better the mount. For sure will give your grand kids nightmares.

Awesome Boar
