For the hard core boar hunter
You want action? You want heart stopping thrills? You want to be on the edge of wetting your pants? :D
Here is my account of what happened. Preacher and I were doing some work at the ranch. When we got to the gate this evening we were welcomed by the euro's. At less than 10 feet, a hog walked up to me that I thought was a euro but I could not see the tag.
It turned sideways and I realized it was a boar that was as big as the euro sows which weigh well over 250#. His mane went up and he reared up on his toes and went into some kind of territorial strut. I grabbed the .243 and went around the jeep to get a better look. The boar bolted towards preacher who jumped up on the hood.
I jacked one in the barrel and the boar turned and charged me. Before I could get the gun to my shoulder, he darted back in the woods at mere feet from where I was standing. I stood there trying to figure out what just happened when he came busting out of the woods again mere feet from where I was standing and ran across the road to deeper woods.
I don't mind telling y'all, that boar got the best of me. He scared the crap out of me. I have been confronted by baors many times out here but never have I had one act like this. I reckon Preacher will chime in and give his account. He was on the other side of the jeep so I don't really know what he saw. I just know that all the way home I was shaking.
Glad you're alright. Sometimes you start getting comfortable with them over a period of time. It's good to get reminders that they are incredibly dangerous animals. Sorry you and Randy had to be my reminder. Better you than me!:eek::D Seriously, I'm just my two buddies are still walking. Hope Hercules is doing better.:confused:
Oops! I hit the button twice. My bad!:rolleyes:
