Good hog with great dental-work. Congratulations!

Care to share what you learned about the shot that didn't anchor him a few months ago? Recover the slug(s)?


Will be taking the head to get euro done next week.  Going to tell him to watch for the slugs.  What I learned was shot placement is everything.  I rushed my shot and tried to put the shot directly into the top of his head when he was facing me with head down.  I heard it hit very solid but he took the hit without even missing a step on his way out.  This time I placed the shot right where it needed to be.  I did place a second round to the base of the skull and spine to make sur he would not get back up.  I’m too dang fat to climb a tree or out run him.  And I always hunt with a sidearm.
