last night we stopped by one of my buddy's grandparent's soybean field on the way home and ran a big boar out of them. nailed him a few times with the .45 acp and he started spinning around and growling. my buddie's red heeler jumped out of the truck and got up in his face. they were going round and round and i was worried about my bud's dog. she has never dealt with a hog before and he was fixing to tear her up... i ran up and popped him twice in the head and put him down. he weighed about 300 pounds, with 4" cutters. his head was a solid scar, you can tell he was one of the bada$$es of the area. hogs that size kill a lot of fawns and calves there, and it was good to get a big old dominant boar down and out of the process. we think he was one of the stock killers they have out there because of the smell on him, he had definitely been feeding on meat. started cutting on him and even the meat had that rank smell the meat eaters have, so i decided not to keep the meat. might sound a little foreign to yall that don't have hogs, but we kill them when we see them, and can't make a dent in their population at all. not every hog is fit for eating, you can pretty much tell if they are good or not when you start cutting on them, especially the boars. damn cell phone wouldn't take a pic even in the headlights, but if too much of his head isn't gone i'll do a skull mount and put the pics on here. i need to get another digital camera. the boar stunk so bad we didn't want to put him in the truck so i'll let him dry out a bit by the soybeans before i get the head ready.
