Big MS Hog

While hoping to take a nice fat doe with my 45-90 in Amite County, MS yesterday, I was fortunate to have a 70lb boar come out of the woods approximately 75 yards from my ladder stand. As I raised my Browning B-78, the boar turned away, heading downhill. The old Texas heart shot was in order and I sent the 405gr Remington jacketed soft point through his derriere and out his chest. He dropped like a sack of potatoes but it was only 4:27pm so I continued to hunt.

Within about 20 min, a very large Russian boar came out, walking right past the dead, much-smaller hog.. The 400lb (according to the five men it took to lift him onto a four-wheeler) Russian boar took my second 405gr slug through the shoulders. It had four inch tusks! Fortunately, the big lifting help wanted both boars and no meat was wasted. What a great hunt!!!
