I'm a target shooter; not much of a hunter. That said, I was out clearing some cedars with my dad, and this guy started ambling around in the brush.

One shot with a 77gr TMK / 8208 XBR / LC Brass @ 2500fps rolled him down a deep canyon. 3 more to stop him from squealing.

What do you figure he weighs? I know nothing about hogs, but I'm 35, 6'4 220 and he was one heavy SOB.

Don't know what he weighs, but deduct 20 pounds for mud.

Save his head for a skull mount or cut tusks out to save.
If just keeping tusks let dry real good couple of months then fill with super glue to keep from spliting.
