Exclamation Hog Anatomy 101

Here's a link to a site that shows the EXACT LOCATION of a hog's heart/lung area.... along with the rest of it:

http://www.texasboars.com/anatomy.html

These series of "graphic photos" also show why a "behind the base of the ear/center neck shot" is so effective - it will most likely hit the spinal column, which is near the center of a hog's neck.

For more info on hog hunting try this link:

This is a good photo showing the vitals on a hog for proper shot placement.

Pigs will rarely leave a blood trail unless the shot is a complete pass through. However, a solid caliber round to the head renders the blood trail uneccessary. Me? I prefer the 140 grain Accu-Bond round in .270.

I do say this much in light to the subject. I am a hog hunting enthusiast all year long and always have an urge to hunt those huge wild boars. It the past I can say this about shot placement-with a rifle try to shot just behind or in the ear especially on a meat pig. There is no reason to sacrifice any of that tasty meat in any way. Now if you are not confident in your head shoting ability go for the lower shoulder cup. This will help you stray away from that horrible shoulder plate that can take a bullet any day of the week and hold massive amounts of blood. By shooting that lower area in a way kind of under the shoulder you will get great blood and get a great heart shot with some lung.
Archery-This is the difficult path to take because in most instances I have found that being eye level with the hog is best.When shooting for a stand it leaves very little room for error and the fat and tough skin skin grow strong up high. In most cases with the bow I take neck shots becasue you need good blood with the bow. I have only taken one hog with my bow that dropped him because I hit him square in the back bone.I choose the neck for multiple reasons.One being it is so large and has some very strong vitals in it. 2 the neck is usually presented more often than a good quartering away shot. and three is it drops awesome blood that hinders a pig ability to do anything. I shoot for the necks center just before the shoulder starts. The meat here is tender and skin toughness is low in this area.Clean pass throughs are not a problem and the will not tear up your arrow even if the neck bone it struck. Also this lets you have some relief of knowing you don't have to have a really hard shooting bow to penetrate deeply like you do when taking the broadside shot. Don't get me wrong the broadside shot will do it(i still take those shots in certain situations) but the equipment must be stout and willing to be lost.

Default Hog

Hogs with archery. I've always used the heaviest arrow possible, and a fixed broadhead that cuts on impact. And always had complete pass thru's.
