Cool Big Boar meets Texan SS

Tazhunter0 (Chris) has made multiple sits on my place for this boar. Since last October he has come out and hunted multiple all nighters and even full wknds in the blind. Last night everything finally came together.

This boar surprised me in size in person. Based on trail cam I didn't think he was as big as he was body wise but knew he had some good cutters.

Texan SS Air Rifle did the trick and dropped this beast on the spot! Congrats again Chris!

My original guess was 223# and then after handling him I said 276#.

This guy surprised me based on his body size but he only went 201#.

About 35-40 yards.

First shot put him down, but I put second one at base of head to make sure he didnít get back up.

Iím 325# and he surprised me with what he weighed. I even double checked the scale.

I've seen you mention them a few times in several threads and even still, didn't fully realize the capability to take down a pig like this. Pretty neat.

#3 this past Friday!

Check out my live pig thread last year where Chris dropped the boar in the video. Ill see if I can find it and post here. I am amazed the capability of the Texan SS. Dropdeadfred these pigs quickly no matter the size.
