I got back last night from our Georgia hog hunt and it was a great time, as always. We stayed four nights and hunted three days (four of us). I shot a small boar on the first night, about 150 pounds. On night #2, however, my friend Don whacked a really nice big boar of 260 pounds+. Heavy front shoulders, long snout and heavy shield on this one.
My shot was right at 125 yds and took the boar just forward of the base of the neck, dropping him on the spot. My rifle was a Ruger 77 Hawkeye SS/Lam in .358 Win and I was shooting 250gr Grand Slams (rifle was last sighted in for a Maine bear hunt).
My Buddy Don's shot was about 65 yards, I believe, and he shot his just under the ear with his Browning X-Bolt .308 and 165gr Fusion. His boar also dropped to the shot. Don was very impressed with the very stout shield of well over one inch as we caped his boar out for the taxidermist.
Lots of hog sign, but our two other friends did not connect. A great time was had by all with wonderful food (steaks, lasagna, etc) for our evenings spent in the lodge/cabin. Here's a couple of pictures for you. First one is Don and his big Boar. Second is our group of four with Don's Boar and the third is the two guides who took us to our areas and helped with game care plus Don and I.
