Default Big Fella Down!

Sat for a couple hours. Have a sounder of 16 come often around the same time every night. Some reason this big boy was only one to show. I was using a 6.8 loaded with nosler Accubond paired with my Pulsar N455. I hit the heart for sure as he only made it 20 yards before taking a dirt nap. The bullet did not make a complete pass thru on him but maybe that could be expected on a beast this big? There was also no blood trail at all! The bullet had to the job though. We did perform operation, I really wanted to, it was just to late to do all that. I really wish I did cut it open to see what the insides looked like. Luckily we found him by watching the video and seeing where he went. By far my biggest. No official weight but I and others belive to be in the 300lb territory. I've shot many 200-250 lb hogs but this is by far bigger, at least to me. Thankful we had the 4 wheeler!

Check out the video if you'd like.

Nice hog. An easy way to get a very good weight estimation is to use the heart girth measurement. All you need is a tape measure.
