Default RE: Big Boars & Buckshot (starting this weekend)

I shot a 125 lb sow last night. The first shot, a slug, glanced off her skull (not the best shot) and only wounded her. The next 3 shots were 2 3/4" no. 1 buckshot.

The last two were at point blank range. I shot her in the head from a distance of about 4 feet (trying to put her out of her misery). She promptly got up and charged me. I shot her again between the eyes and she stumbled and fell and died. Both rounds of buckshot were between the eyes directly over the brain. I pulled both wads from the hide covering her head.

Next time I will only use 3.5" 000 or better buckshot. Lesson learned (for me, anyway).
