Here piggy, piggy

Friend from Maryland shot this fellar yesterday morning using a Pedersoli Country Hunter, 62gr of Sannadex and a Lyman Great Plains Bullet.

Bullet took a lung, through the top of the heart, through the liver, and ended in the abdominal cavity.

Nice. Need to book a trip for a Maryland hunt; had no idea they had warthogs and aboriginal guides there.

That ain't an aboriginal, it is a Sotho. Vastly different.

Aboriginal people are simply the earliest known people to have lived somewhere. Did the Sotho people live somewhere else before hand. A good example are American Indians. These are aboriginal people in America.
By the way nice pictures. Hope he really enjoyed his hunt.

Nope the Sotho nations did not live in the area until the 1400-1500's. The Bushmen (San) were the original inhabitants. The Nguni's (Sotho, Xhosa and Zulu's) reached and had established themselves from East Africa into South Africa approx 500 years ago.

Thanks everybody, it was a good hunt seeing that my friend came to South Africa, and had shot all the animals he wanted and most of them were of trophy quality.
