Great shot. That's a big Javelina what did he weigh 70-80lbs?

Not a very big target at that range though!

Thanks. Yeah he was one of the biggest I've ever seen. The biggest I've ever killed for sure. I don't have a scale so I didnt get to weigh him.

I've seen a hell of a lot of Javelina, and that's certainly one of the three largest. Again, congrats!

Thanks! Yeah I'm glad we got it on video. Not my longest kill but one of the best because like you said it's a smaller target especially at that range. I was originally going for a coyote at 600 but he left before I could dial my scope in, then this guy walks out 1 minute later. Lol

Ha! I had one of those days myself today. Went and set up for a long range shot on a deer who never showed up and instead killed a whopper of a bobcat .. . Gotta love Texas!
