I saw my first dead hog as a little kid. I had wanted to shoot a hog more than anything, every chance I had to go to my uncles land in texas I went in hopes to shoot a hog but at the time there were not many. I finally saw one, dead, in the middle of the dirt camp road (obviously not road kill). We got out and inspected it, it was in a puddle of blood, I asked my uncle if there were tresspassers, he took a long pull from his 24 ounce beer and said something I will never ever ever forget "He probably did the central texas thing, saw it, shot it in the gut, let it run over to someone elses ranch to die and not worry about it"
Im a bit of a bragger myself so I like to shoot them DRT for photo opps to rub it in my friends faces that Im currently hunting and they are not.
to answer your question, I always go for the the head, if out of range, get in range, helps me hone my skills, or lack there of. Also I have killed them using almost every form of weaponry and unconventional tactic you could ever think of, sometimes on purpose and usually on accident. I may or may not KNOW A GUY that filled a small coffee can with washers and tannerite, removed the feeder after it dispatched the corn and set up a lonnnnng ways off.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane bud.
