More pig anatomy...shot with a .222...that spot between eye and ear is a perfect brain shot...

Though I have shot a couple at the base of the ear and that seemed to work too...

Between the ear and eye is the sugar when stunt shooting. I’ve pulled it off with 22 LR and Mag, 17rem, 222, 223, and 22-250. With a 44 magnum the sweet spot is pretty much the front half of the pig.

Asking for a friend.

That is why you carry the big knife.
You run up and slit their throat.
Or in Hawaii you crawl up to them and either slit the throat or stick with a spear.

I like to do my hunting BEFORE I pull the trigger!
There is only one kind of dead, but there are many different kinds of wounded.

Most but not all. A lot of it depends on size and/or sex.

Backstraps and hams off the smaller boars, and about the same off the sows. After a sow has about her third litter there's not enough meat on her to fool with. But yeah, the coyotes eat well. As a matter of fact, a couple of us are thinking about sitting at the gut-pile some evening just to shoot the coyotes when they come in. When I was a kid reading the outdoor magazine, coyotes were something that lived out west. Now they're everywhere around here...just like the pigs.

Never tested on dead pigs. We use live ones all the time. LOL

They have to pass the smell test for us when we walk up. If they pass we use all the meat. If not, they get dumped. Sex and size and age have not mattered. It has not failed us yet.

On our lease, a lot of that would depend on where they are. There's one spot that is bounded by "wallers" and 100% of the pigs there are going to smell rank for the simple fact that they're laying in their own urine. After a rinse there's generally no smell.

I've hunted with a 44 combo similar to yours.

Be not afraid, you'll smak them down nicely with that. smile


Whatever you are willing to put up with, is exactly what you will have.

When your ship comes in. ... make sure you are willing to unload it.

I"ve posted this before.

My hunting bud can kill a pen full of hogs about as slick as any I've seen. He uses his cheap, scoped .17 HMR rifle with FMJ ammo. He slips up on the hogs and while they're looking at him, before they go bonkers, he picks out one, lines up the head between wires, hits a spot between the eyes, an inch up from midline.

Hog goes down, eye's popped out on a stem. No racket, no blood. He lines up the next one and Zap...

It takes a few minutes but is about the slickest and quietest way to clear a pen without a lot of fuss..

I’ve saw several thousand meet gezzus. With a 223 and a 64 grain bullet. Shoot them thru the lungs
