I Shot this Boar on May 4th at 7:15AM in Cali. He was about 200-250lbs. He was a mean one. He got up after being shot and tried to rush me. I won that battle. This was my first Pig hunt. I celebrated with a couple Homebrews.

Huge problem everywhere now. NY just released guidelines which basically make them open targets during any legal season with any legal weapon, with no bag limit.

Congrats! That's a big one. I'd love to shoot one and smoke the whole thing on the bone.

I got him just North of Bodega Bay in Sonoma County on private property. We were hunting in the coastal mountains. I already dressed him out right after this picture, then I dropped him off at a Butcher to process him. Going top get some nice Ribs, Chops, Roasts, Ground Pork, and Smoked Hams. I'll make my own Sausage. I have been Deer hunting for about 20 years. I usually process my own Deer. California Fish & Game used to sell a 5-pack of Pig tags for $5. They are now $18.50 per Pig.

We are going back again in August. My friend shot a 300 pounder last October.

Was this a feral pig, or a javelina? Regards, GF.

Well, not around here. Way too many people ready, willing and able to keep the population down. Some talk even, about regulating it.

OP - 250 lbs is enough to do some serious damage. My great uncle always said to never go near a pig you thought was dead, an extra bullet is a good investment.

I shot twice in the head at close range when he charged me. He stayed down after that but didn't die until we cut his throat.
