I say live to hunt, itís not always about the kill.
If you take a big game animal the work begins to pack it out of where you are in the remote areas that you may be hunting in. Safeway is still open.
A lot of noobs never consider this when they think about taking up hunting large game. The further you get from the roads and the more harsh the terrain, the more difficult it'll be to haul that animal's carcass out from where you shot it. Field dressing helps, but if its a particularly large animal unless you are willing to sacrifice and lose a lot of meat you're in for a good workout.
I shot an adult capybara some months back, roughly 5 km into a swamp. I estimate he could have been about 150lbs live weight. After dressing I had to haul that sucker out, and it was anything but easy. I had to make 2 trips. When I got home and weighed him, there was just under 90 pounds of meat on the scale. Ain't no way on this planet eas I I going to try to haul that much load over that long a distance, with swamp mud grabbing ahold of my boots every single step of the way.
Manny, you'll have your chance at that square jawed boar soon enough. You've got the patience, your time will come.
