Right behind the ear because his shield is probably four inches thick

doesnt matter the size of the hog, shoot them behind they ear and they all drop. 40 - 500 pounders...

Inside 200 yards id give em a 27 caliber 110 grain vmax a little behind and below the base of the ear. Outside 200 id pass with the v max, but with the other .270 Id put an Accubond behind his shoulder, that hog looks fat but young. Doesnt look terribly huge either a lung shot will do the trick.

behing the ear in the brain? or in the neck to sever the spinal cord? I have never shot at one before and want to waste little meat. how much do you think this one weighs? 220 plus live weight?

Much less than 220, hogs are hard to estimate if you havent seen many on the scale before. Shoot just behind the ear from a broadside or quartering away position and youll do just fine. Do not attempt the shot if hes moving to much or youre not steady only shoot if you are 100 percent confident in your hold.
