Default hogs from a treestand

I have been gathering info for a first hunt and one might say that a wild boar isn't something you might wanna have a go at on a first hunt.
But I'm stubborn, so.
I've found a great hunt in Croatia but they hunt from stands.
has anyone done this before, shot a boar from a treestand or an elevation ?
what's the best POI, or should I just aim for the exit hole ?

I forgot to mention it will be a bowhunt, I'm shooting a 60# 82ns airborne with 125gr slicktricked FMJ's.

Aim for the same place you would on a deer. Right behind the front shoulders.

Right behind the front shoulders.

Low behind the front shoulders. A hogs heart and lungs are lower in the body than those of a deer.
