Shot this young boar last night about an hour before sundown just north of Nocona. He was with another, larger hog. Glad I didn't shoot that one. It was hard enough getting this one skinned and cut up before dark.



Here's the bullet. It entered the left shoulder, passed through the chest, and lodged in the right shoulder. I found it in the sink when I was cutting the shoulder up. It's a 55 gr. Sierra Game King. Mushroomed perfectly, and did its job well.

Nice going. I always like it when the hogs show up in daylight.

The hogs seem to show up a lot between 9 to 10 am and around 2-3pm when I'm not there. they will usually show up about an hour before sunset if the hunting pressure has been low.

Great shot and details.

What type of rifle are you using? Very interesting to see 55gr do that damage from the shoulder shot
