This was a hunt at Fort Hunter Liggett in CA in March of 2005 with Rick (Westy). We were actually trying to roost some turkeys when Rick spotted some hogs down below us. Another turkey hunter spotted the same hogs and stalked them for a shot below us. He missed and the hogs ran up the ridge to Westy where he wacked the big boar.

On the slo-mo you can see two puffs of dirt from the 7mm hitting the hog and then exiting the hide on the far side.

Boar weighed 275 lbs. on the Fort scale and didn't have much for ivory, maybe an inch. Pretty tough animal to take a 7mm in the boiler room and not even flinch and still make the top of the ridge on the run.

Camcorder was a Canon GL-2.

Wow, you're right, it's hard to believe something that size would not at least STUMBLE a little before trotting off, after getting hammered with 7mm...

Those things are tough!
