Wow. That hog dropped like it was a head shot. Working up a load with the 152gr Sledgehammer for a short barrel .308 and the 177gr for my 280 AI and that's helpful for that process.

Always great vids Zen keep 'um coming.

Barrow for sure. I hope you kept more than just the back strap esp since you know his history.

Any "hog" show you go to has three classes. Gilt, barrow and boar. Whether that's 4-H, FFA or Open show.

A Barrow is a castrated Boar, I never knew they turned them back loose
I didn't know that it was done either but I can see how and why. If you trap the piglets in a fenced cage at a feeder and the sow gives you no problem it only takes seconds to "cut" a boar piglet. There you reduce the breeding possibility and enhance the flavor when hunted later. Not my idea of pig farming but could be done.

Well that makes sense I guess, I just figured they were like Coyotes, you don't let anything walk
