Default Nice boar

Got this beast on our property a few years back. Thought I would share a few pics. I'm 6' 4" and weigh 240 for reference in the one picture.

Yes it is a coyote I got it a few hours after shooting the boar. I hunt hogs at night over bait that I have four green led solar powered little yard lights made to put along your side walk. I get a coyote almost as often as I do a hog. We put the hog remains close to the light which draw them into the area. Hogs eat the remains as well.

I was thinking the same thing Stewart. That raised hair along the spine makes it look very Russian.

That is some muscle system in profile!!! How tough was it to kill? What caliber? Through which part of the animal?

How much did it weigh? My scale goes to a max of 350#'s. That one would have pegged it. I have not tried two scales, back to back in parallel, and added their weights. I don't know if they would share the weight or not - but that seem feasible - from an engineer's perspective. Anybody ever try that?

Weighed on a local farm supply scales he was 405. The owner was surprised since he had guessed he would top 500. Shot at around 70 yards with 7mm 08 using 150 grain nosler partion bullet. One shot behind shoulder no exit wound which made for no blood trail, just tracks. He went about 80 yds from where I shot him to where I found him next morning. The fields I shot him in haven't been mowed in more than seven years which makes for one heck of a thicket so I backed out and found him at daylight the next morning. Would not want to get close to him in the dark to find he was still alive .

Wise decision, we wouldn't fare well fighting him on his terms, in his choice of territory.
Great hog, thanks for sharing.

Yes! 150 grain Nosler Partition! High energy transfer, superior penetration, quick knock down. I too would not go in there after any hog that isn't DRT. Too many with a bad attitude wait for their back trail to be shadowed and they come out with vengeance in their eyes. Not a good plan to be on one's hands and knees in the dark and potentially facing that.

That’s a beast! How does a boar of that size taste? Make just sausage out of it?
