Ive been almost run over by a big boar on a hunt in tenn.
we were stalking with bows and walked up on one bedded and he charged out of his bed stright at me.
My bow went one way and i went the other and the hog ran where i was standing.
After that i told the guide i wanted to get off the ground in a tree.
I ended up getting this one at 28yds a 300pounder but the one that charged us.............I STILL WANT HIM
