    Hello,

    On December 28th, 2012, I killed my first big wild boar with my Blaser Express 97 in 9.3x74R caliber, with a copper/steel bi-metallic bullet, a FIP Sauvestre 254 grains.

    I had my camera on the forehead. Here is the video:



    Enjoy !

    Congratulations.
    That does look like a fun way to hunt.

    Who else was shooting at your boar?

    Thank you all!

    Marie, my girlfriend, shot the second bullet. She started to hunt a few month age, after she met me.

    And in August we are heading to Eastern Cape, South Africa, with my son, for a 6 day safari ! Gretaer Kudu, impala, springbok and warthog are planned! So cooool!

    That was a great shot on a running boar, it looked like you had to hustle to cut him off. Waidmansheil!

    hi herve.
    i am planning a family holiday to bordeaux and with any luck should fit in a couple of days hunting. However i dont want to jump in feet first and book the first outfit online , i prefer to go with local knowledge , or better still a local !! if you would not mind sharing some hard earned advice i would be most sincerely grateful and hopefully one day might be able to return the favour. best wishes nicky.

    Great video

    That was a great video and I liked how you broke it down and edited into the clip several times, and in several languages. Excellent! That is a nice big boar and what a cool adventure and nice tusks. The bullet added to the plaque is so awesome as well.

    Just saw this today. Wow! What a shot and a splendid trophy. Wish we had some European hunting in the States. The closest I do is running beagles for snowshoe hare in Vermont. Love watching the dogs work. Congratulations.
