Default Big piggy down

Took this boar on Saturday morning in SW Llano county. He was acting really sketchy while coming in, possible he had picked up my scent so I didnít let him wait around long. I shot him with a 420 grain Easton axis with a Rage Trypan.. he only went about 50 yards.

Great hog but I am surprised that he doesn't have bigger teeth. Back in the 80's Gene Whitehead who owned the Granite Hills Ranch purchased a bunch of Hampshire boars and turned them loose on the ranch in an attempt to improve the genetics, better meat hogs. While I am sure that most of the boars died or were killed by the wild boars without breeding a sow but seeing some of the hogs in the area makes me think that some did reproduce.
We caught two really big boars east of Menard along the San Saba River about a month ago that had white belts on them. As many of you know, that is a characteristic of the Hampshire breed. These two boars had really big teeth. We videoed the hunt and it will be aired on CARNIVORE this next season.
Adios,
Gary

He had actually broken off both of his bottom's. Probably only an inch left on each and they were jagged!

Well that's a helluva hole in that hog ! I'd be interested to know if you got a pass through or did he destroy your arrow like the hogs I shoot usually do.

Complete pass through. Arrow and broadhead are still good.

I think the pigs in Llano are about the same size as most places I have been. If axle to axle on the bow is 31", I have seen pigs in Llano that would eat that one.

Good (dead) Llano co. pig! Repeat!
