As if the initial video doesn’t pump your adrenaline enough, it actually takes the slow-motion replays to really see just how close these charging hogs come to the hunters. That’s how fast events unfold – and the tables can turn – when a hunter is charged by a wild boar.
Another thing you’ll notice is not to be taken lightly – even after being shot, many of these hogs still have the wherewithal to keep on attacking. They are not scared to go right for the hunter, whether the initial charge or even after being shot.
Watch and see what we mean:
In the last of the 5 clips, did you catch the click of the gun not firing before the hog slams directly into the hunter? Here are some take-aways for your next hog hunt:
First, sh__ can happen very fast when you are hog hunting, whether wild or feral hogs. Not only that, it will be unpredictably chaotic, so take note – you will need to keep calm and collected even in the fray.
Second, your shots may be in very close quarters, with limited visibility. That means if you are with a hunting partner, you’ll both need to be extraordinarily careful not to accidentally shoot one another. Sadly, it happens every year.
Third, consider additional protection in the form of one of the best handguns you can carry. In the event your rifle mis-fires (like the 5th hunter shown), or you are in close quarters where a rifle is unwieldy, you may very well be glad you carried a large caliber self-defense handgun.
If you were a ferocious wild boar, wouldn’t you do what it takes to knock out your assassin? So, it doesn’t really matter to us that these 5 video clips were re-assembled in another country for YouTube, we think they are a great illustration of just want you want to be careful of.
Always remember, things can go downhill very quickly on a hog hunt. Not sure about you, but we’re ready to get out to the practice range, this time for some quick draw shots using the best gun for wild boar.
