Single Shot .45-70 Rifle Drops Wild Hog on the Run

Sometimes you only need one shot.

That’s all this hunter had with his single-shot rifle and he scored big.

Watch the video below to see an epic shot from a single-shot, .45-70 rifle that drops wild hog on the run.

In a video YouTuber Mark Schutzius posted, we see a whole herd of wild hogs race past a ways off. A young hunter armed with a single-shot, .45-70 rifle steps forward and lines up a shot at a running hog. He has one shot, so he has to make it count. With that one shot, a heavy .45-70 caliber slug slams into the hog.

You sir have a keen eye and a marksman’s shot with that hard-hitting rifle!
