Took a long time family friend out hunting over the weekend
His oldest son and mine are friends too.
The boy (14) got his first ever anything...
a nice 255 Russian Boar
Had a great time doing some bass fishing and just hanging out together...

He nailed this sucker, straight through the shoulder, through the heart and exited the far side behind the shoulder.
Made it 20 yards. 165g Barnes out of a 3078 about 70 yards away.
Lots of hog sightings, had one within 15 yards of me and my son but he took off running and he couldn't get the shot off..

My son and I were stalking up to a tank later the same evening and and a nice boar came out of the tank and directly into the game trail we were coming down..

I could have shot it but wanted my son to get it..
I was going "shoot it!' shoot it!

It got within 15 yards of us before going "hey, what's that in front of me, crap, RUN!!"
He learned a valuable lesson I have been trying to drill in him: keep the scope on lowest power
He couldn't find it in the scope and it took off and I tried a running shot when it got to some clearing about 60 yards off to the right.. but missed, forgot about the follow through...

Poor kid, earlier that day he stalked upon some at the same tank, got lined up and "click"
bad primer
racked another one, but they busted him and took off
