Thanks for the compliments guys. Yep he sure was a good pig. He was as old as the hills too. I just loved the look of him so that's why I had to get a full body mount.
DW5 I sure wouldn't say no if they wanted to use that photo in a catalog lol. And yes your right I would praise the MKV Lazermark extremely high. It is probably my favourite rifle. Chambered in .340 WBY I used it on this hunt to take a few critters. Combined with the 225 grain Barnes TSX it flattened everything with authority.

Nice shooting, DW! Saved all the meat too! Looks like good eatin' to me.

Thanksgiving slaughter, we got 12 boars and one sow that night. Not taken with the Mark V, used my AAC MPW 300BLK 9" SBR with AAC SDN-6 can and few were taken with the Glock G40 MOS 10mm with a Trijicon RMR on top. We usually run them down in the Rangers and RZR's so having a semi is a lot better than the bolt gun. Half the time we hunt them with dogs and knives, way more of an adrenaline rush.

This is my brother in laws place in Calhoun County near Port Lavaca. We have people out from time to time, I've been getting some former Mil buddies out this year and I wouldn't mind taking out a few Wounded Warriors as wel.

I went on a hunt this weekend with West Texas Hunt Org. just south of Van Horn. We had a great time. Lee, or guide (semi-guided hunt) was great; he was entertaining to talk to, took care of the camp and feeders and let us know where the pigs had been spotted lately.

On the evening of the first (official) day of the hunt, I shot this boar with my Ruger M77 in 270. I use handloaded 130 gr Nosler Partitions in that rifle. The shot was about 100 yds and he was quartering away slightly. The bullet entered just behind the shoulder, breaking 2 ribs as it entered. It clipped 1 lung and severed the main thoracic artery near the spine before proceeding through the backside shoulder and coming to rest just under the skin. I watched the pig dropped immediately through my scope. He ened up weight just about 230 lbs.

If anyone is in West Texas and looking for a guided or semi-guided pig hunt, these guys are top class and have a VERY healthy pig population. I highly recommend them.

Congratulations on taking a 200+ lb hog. The whitish gray color behind his head is really cool looking and it almost looks like its fluffed up and not course? The 270 win was a great choice in caliber for the hunt.
