    Had a good hunt last night, got this chocolate boar when he came in about 7:20pm.

    48 yards with 7mm-08 and 139 SST's. Didn't go 30 yards, double lung shot.

    measured out over 6 foot, weighed 265 gutted... guessing 325 range on the hoof.

    Few pics for now... more to follow I hope soon.
