How big are their waffen(weapons/tusks).
We have had a few close calls from getting charged by some really pissed off boars and sows. You definitely have to stay on your toes when stalking them in the dark,they can be very dangerous animals when they feel cornered.

Some of the big boars that we have shot,have 4"-5" cutters on them. I know,I'd never want to be on the receiving end of them!

I'm liking the look of the new Winchester .357 lever gun. Just wish somebody made one in .41mag. Now that would be a hog gun!

Of the popular hand gun calibers the 41 Mag is my favorite for a rifle use!
