What rifle and caliber Guy?
Congratulations on a fine boar. I never could say what makes hog hunting so addictive, but I'd hate to see what would happen to me if I don't get my annual "fix".
Nice hog, by the way your shot placement is exactly where I try to put all of mine. DRT, no meat loss, no searching.
Congrats on your success in the heat.
What method to hunt them; Stand, bait or spot and stalk?

@Guy.GIts a custom winchester model 70 in 35 whelen. Purpose build as a pig rifle as that is the majority of my hunting. Heres a pic.

Yes I am also addicted to hunting hogs, I manage to get out every couple of months.
I hit him front on from about 130 metres with a 225 gn woodleigh round nose, the projectile ended between his back legs. heres a picture of the recovered pill its on the right.

In the hotter months I like to stalk in on the water, looking for boars in wallows or bedded down close by. We waited for this boar to water at dusk as we could see where he had been wallowing for days.
