    Good thing for him, he didn't panic. Maintained his composure and was able to save himself.

    That was no less a lethal confrontation than a thug on the street with a knife pointed at you!

    Glad the good doctor is going to be OK.

    I'm a long time dedicated wild hog hunter. Have killed over 45 wild hogs this year alone, mostly with a .50 muzzleloader. Have been chased by wild hogs several times. One time I walked between a big sow and her pigs without knowing it. Another time a big wounded boar came after me. Was able to drop them with my first shot.

    Wounded a sow a few years ago and she ran into a plum thicket. Went after her and she let out a blood curdling scream that is the hog distress call. In about one minute here came the cavalry in the form of a 225 pound boar hog. Luckily, my first shot dropped him DRT. Now I wear chainsaw chaps when going after wounded hogs.

    Two years ago a local hog hunter was knocked down unexpectedly by a big sow who turned and came at him again. The guy was wearing a model 1911 on his leg; he pulled the .45 and nailed her. The sow died partly on top of him.


    This boar hog killed one German hunter and cut up another one.
