BHD 265 grain
330 lbs Hog
Hunt of a life

killed this large boar on Sunday.

for 75 yards or more until I was able to get withing

him off with a 10 yard shot. The first bullet was recovered and because

the spine was unreal. This hog wasn't going far!!
Then the fun began of trying to drag him out. What a beast
