A wounded hog can be very dangerous and they can hurt you-bad. This hog weighed 192 pounds. The doctor lost three pints of blood and is a very lucky man.
This is why i always take a detour by the truck and put on chainsaw pants before going after a wounded hog. http://www.gon.com/article.php?id=2081&cid=84
Dr. Jackson took a 350-yard shot and heard the .243 bullet hit, but it missed the heart by an inch. The hog ran along a fence line and out of sight. J.R. went for the truck while Dr. Jackson took off through the pasture on foot.
Meanwhile, the bullet-hit hog was hunkered down in a thicket no bigger than a compact car. When the doctor came into sight, the boar charged Dr. Jackson.
?I fired from my hip and just missed,? Dr. Jackson recalled from the leather recliner in his living room. ?He took my feet out from under me and was on top of me.?
The hog backed off and charged again, this time burying a tusk in the doctor?s arm. He used his Remington .243 as a club and managed to hold back the hog?s head as it drove into him again and again. A pair of binoculars blocked a blow to his gut.
