I agree

Those piglets are the cutest things in the world. It's so amazing that they grow to be such mean and ugly critters. Hang in there, you'll get her. and can raise those pigs until they are eating size. You might also check into selling them. :grin:

well....

Hard to describe without a photo. Picture the hog, from the ear, back towards the shoulder, from the top of the neck and down a few inches. Kind of a rectangular area.

If you aim too low, you will likely lo :) se the hog, but a shot in that area generally drops them in their tracks. Too far back and hit the shoulder, you may not recover the hog, depends on his size, weapon used, penetration etc.... markc
