i hunt wild hogs 12 months of the year usually about two days per week when at home. Many, if not most, of the wild hogs in this area have Eurasian boar blood. About ten years ago a car dealer in OK City ordered 100 pairs of boars from Germany and turned them loose all over SW OK. A wild hog with Eurasian boar blood can be pretty ornery when wounded or cornered.

First saw this boar about three years ago. He bluffed me out once when i had him cornered in a plum thicket. Looked at that big snorting hog about 15 yards away, looked at my muzzlloader and exited the thicket. Finally got that hog last Friday. Distance was about 30 yards. The hog ran about 100 yards, hit the dirt, thrashed around for about 45 seconds and expired:

Gun: TC Encore
Scope: Zeiss 4X32
Powder: 100 grains of 3F Pinnacle
Bullet: 250 grain Shockwave
Primer: Win. shotgun

Wow, no joke. You can definitely see the something is in the mix there with that broad chest and elongated snout.

Congratulations. Nice firearm there too.

Boy those hogs give mean a whole new meaning. You have it right though hunting them with a front loader. Congratulations.

Falcon, congrats, every one of those ornery little buggers you take out is one less to tear up the woods, and make the habitat less desirable to more popular game species.
