Very hot day working a small creek system.Lots of km's for one boar sighted. Dropped him with the 9.3 as he left his wallow. Neck shot as his chest was obscured by a tree. Not a bad boar. heres a pic cheers Mick

Nice Boar!! I like your choice of caliber and shot selection. Your 9.3 x 62 is very close to the 35 Whelen that I've used on them in the States and on a number of African Plains Game. Neck / spine shots for Boar / Hogs are what I strive for.

Nice choppers on that boar!
My last boar had one nice cutter but the other was missing. May have lost it fighting chase dogs in the creek where they "treed" him under some down tree trunks. I shot it a close range and dog handler had to wade into creek to drag out dead floating hog.

You've got to love the way the bigger calibers drop pigs with authority.

Art I love the Whelen on pigs. My last effort was two for one shot using 225grain woodleigh PPSP. Very pleasing results.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
