    Big +1 on that! Awesome hunt and fantastic video. I can't believe how much hunting you are able to get in, and hogs too! Its become my favorite wild meat. Looks like you may feel the same way?

    Hey Andy, those hogs taken with a .243? Looked like plenty of rifle for the job. Also can you say what grain bullets you used? Many thanks.

    Yep, took 'em with the guide's .243 and factory-loaded ammo. Not sure, but I think 100-grain bullets. It proved quite lethal for head shots at 70 to 80 yards. A friend in FL hunts hogs with a .22 Hornet. "Be patient and aim for the ear," he says.
    I prefer a .270 for all-around deer hunting, but I've also used a .243 to take alligator, pronghorn, whitetail & mule deer.

    I'm not the only one who likes wild pork. On strict orders from my wife, we sneaked some fresh backstraps past Brazilian customs on the way home.

    Thats awesome. And I agree on the .243 being plenty of gun for hogs. The trick is indeed to whisper in thier ears, its the best way to lay em down for slaughter. I personally favor 85 gr sierra gamekings but I also use 105 gr Amaxes. My .243 has an 8 twist barrel so the 105s shoot very well.

    I haven't shot, or hunted hogs, in many years. Might have to get back into it. Awsome vids you are posting! I love watching them!
