One shot fatal at 50 yds with 300 BO. Pretty quick turn on the Euro, less than a month.

Thanks. Weighed him at home with my scales at 270, picked up Euro on Sat and he said his scales showed him at 302. Going with his since mine has never been tested/calibrated.

Never seen him before with any other of the pigs, he pretty much stayed in the woods until I started putting out corn. Game cam showed he got consistent on the time so it was an easy hunt. Glad he is gone, he pretty much kept the deer ran off.

For anyone concerned about shooting pigs at their feeder, I had deer back eating at the same feeder less than two hours from the shot.

Rookie question - how did you get the skull done like that!? Looks like the perfect trophy smile

Thanks. Took it to taxidermist, several folks do their own but it is not easy. Getting the meat and greasy fat off of them is pretty tough from what I heard.

Great euro. Ask if the taxi filled the the tusks. I did one myself some years back and eventually the tusks cracked because I didn't fill them with anything.
