    So I sat out in the middle of the wheat field for three hours and saw absolutely nothing. Packed it up and started the 500yd hike back to the gate and then about 160yds from the truck I spotted this boar. It was a great finish! He taped out at 270 but boy was he fat. I've never seen a hog that had such short hair all over, just really slicked off and thin like a chihuahua dog. Also notice the white front hoove. First shot was behind the right front elbow and the running shot hit the middle of the spine. Need to work on my lead. But once again the 6.8 Hornady SST got her done.

    Great shot. Big boar and the hair is unique. I did think he was going to drive your truck away.

    That is an outstanding boar!

    You know, the hunt is not over until you leave the property.

    Nice proper set of photographs, BTW. Can't nobody argue with you about forcing perspective.

    Wow that is a fat boy! Good shooting! Looks like a good set of cutters too. That one would make the wait worth while. Pretty unique hog.

    Good running shot! Solid boar. He looks like he might be cut.
