Hog Anatomy 101

Thread starter #1
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:


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. :hair: :clap: :shoot: ;)

For more info on hog hunting try this link:

How about a "Sticky" for this one.

a 7mag will drop it dead no matter where you hit the pig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
