Feral Hog vs. .375 H&H and .416 Rigby

Feral Hog vs .375 H&H and .416 Rigby

Things didn’t end well for this feral hog in Australia’s Northern Territory when it ran into a couple of hunters armed with .375 H&H and .416 Rigby rifles. 

Like many parts of the United States, Australia also has a large population of feral hogs. It seems no matter what people are hunting, if they encounter a hog, it suddenly turns into a hog hunt.

Well, that’s what happened here. These guys were out hunting water buffalo, so they were armed appropriately with rifles chambered in .375 H&H and .416 Rigby. When they encountered a feral hog, they put a stalk on it without hesitating. 

Watch the video below to see how it all went down. It doesn’t end well for the hog.

WARNING: This video has some foul language.

I wonder how much useable meat was left on that hog afterwards…

This video kind of reminds me of the time Doug Giles and his friend went hog hunting with elephant guns (a 9.3x74R and a .577 Nitro) down in Florida. Not surprisingly, those guns also had pretty impressive results.

In any case, say what you will about these guys, but they sure can shoot. Hitting a running boar like that is no easy task.
