Interesting to see the penetration from the JSB once the forest creatures clean up the skull.

Well, there's gonna be a hole one side but no complete passthrough, will not be able after the skull has been cleaned out to see what the travel was.

Only had a couple of complete pass through in the years but It wont happen with a .30 at 90 FPE

Patience just paid off. That's a serious porker.

As always thanks for the hunt and sharing.

Indeed, patience is key

I could have got impatient and shot a couple those saws in the past couple months and probably would have never seen this Boar.

Nice job on the big boar Manny! Great shot as always, but you had to sweat a little on the shot too. He was worth the wait IMO.

I'm always curious to see shot placements. Looking forward to seeing that skull.

There's nothing wrong with flowery shirts! Calico prints with little bitty flowers were common fabrics used for men's shirts in the colonial and early 1800s era. Also, during that time pink was considered a very manly color and, so, few women wore pink during that time. People change; people forget. I know trivials like this because I've kinda sorta been in the Rendezvous scene over the years.

We’re sitting on the edge of our chairs waiting in anticipation.

Do you tie / stake down your piggy skulls to keep them from “walking” away?

No I don't, they get moved around but remain in the general area,
sometimes it takes a bit to find them but I always end up finding them eventually :) :)
