Here is a where to shoot video. The first picture above shows shot placement for a clean kill on a hog. As you can see in the second picture the lungs and heart are farther forward than a deer. This turns the traditional behind the crease of the shoulder shot into a gut shot and a lost hog. The preferred shot placement would be directly in between the ear and the first dot on the hogs shoulder. Center neck shots will take out the spine and drop the hog in its tracks. If the hog moves as you shoot (hogs are always moving) you will hit the head or shoulder. This is a 220 pound boar this shows just how far down the spine is on a adult boar.
