Crazy warthog charge shared by one of our PH's on their FB page. If you think they are not dangerous, think again!

That’s crazy. I wonder if things would have been different had he been on a dangerous game hunt and mentally prepared for a charge? Seems like it startled him when he had second to pull trigger.
 
Yeah my SA PH work mate sent me that one, nice but should not have happened, I have stuck a few Warthog Boars & it is hard work in that thorn country, use the Hi Power now more as I'm getting old & maybe a bit slower ! lol
 
Seems like the dog was in the way, and looks like the hunter is unconscious. Any more details about this hunt, and is the hunter ok? Wow!!!!!
 
Para you posed my same question. Seems the video was edited to have a cut just before the shot and make me suspect the pig worked the Hunter over pretty good prior to the finishing shot. He seemed to being dazed or fully unconscious. Hope he faired on.
 
Yeah that dude looked like he was out cold !
Not something you think of happening !

@firehuntfish
In Australia we have a very respected gun writer and hunter Col Alison that has hunted world wide. On his last trip to Africa a so called friendly house warthog decided to attack Col. End result dead warthog but a long time in hospital being stitched up and pumped full of antibiotics to aid recovery. Repatriation back to Australia and a lot longer to get back to normal. He was very lucky it didn't kill him.
I have been charged by feral pigs when they have been cornered. Fortunately a short barreled 12 gauge SXS loaded with buckshot puts a quick end to the problem.

Do you still have this rifle? I'm in the KC area on business and I'm very interested.

I didn't get drawn for Wyoming this year.




Are you planning to hunt Unit 4 this fall?



(Thinking about coming out)
