The largest wild hog for this season..


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


A link to the story: http://webnews.textalk.com/se/article.php?id=328274

Here is a short (very short) translation:

This is a 378 lbs wild boar, the largest one shot during this season in Sweden (largest ever 484 lbs), Peter Norbergs (the hunters) largest personal one was 396 lbs so this makes it his second largest one ever.

It was shot at about 120 meters using a 202 Sauer rifle in 9.3x62 calibre with a 285 grain Norma Alaska bullet launched at 2400 fps giving 3550 ft/lbs.

It takes one clear hit in the lung area but shows no sign of beeing hit, Peter does not belive his eyes and gives him a second shot in the same area - then the hog starts to run off...

Almost no blood visible at the spot...

A long search for the large pig continues until they find it dead close by...

None of the two bullits have exited the animal, despite two perfect shots - those large hogs are tough.

The pure, and close to pure Russian Wild Boar do get very big. I live near a game preserve (very exclusive) that was started in the late 1800's, and they brought Russian Boar in. I have seen pictures of pigs killed there that were over 600 lbs! I worked in there for a while when I came home from Viet Nam, but the largest one I killed was just over 300 lbs, and it had crossed with a domestic pig....... that's why they wanted me to shoot it. Pigs, and Bear both are different critters when they go over a certain size! You are right, big ones can be very tough indeed!

Google translated it into English. First time I've used it and it works.
