    O.K…………..a rather gross update on the hog I shot last night.

    Boar_7_7_09d.jpg

    I had noticed in several of the Trail-Cam pics of him…it appeared he had an old scar or something on one side. Last night when I was taking pics…I noticed an abscess about the size of my fist on his side.

    abcess_1.jpg

    I didn’t pay it much attention since it is not uncommon for boars to have a few cuts, scars or pustules. But….this one was quite large and got my curiosity up.

    I decided to muster up all of my “gag reflex” this afternoon and cut into the area to see what was causing such a persistence infection.

    I got my razor knife, said a quick prayer (“Dear God…please don’t let any of this funk get on me”) and started exploring.

    I didn’t find anything at first (except a bunch of YUK) but then discovered a hard, gristle like capsule of flesh.

    Once I cut into that….look what I found inside:

    Someone had popped this hog with a .22 sometime in the past. Now I understand why he was so edgy and nervous.

    Is that a heel based rimfire bullet? It kinda looks like it, but no heel. :confused:

    But nevermind the infection, holy frijoles, that thing is enormous - what does it weigh?!?

    In just in case you ignored the warning and are eating lunch, I'll mention this for your pleasure - that body fluid in that last photo looks a lot like the tomato-alfredo sauce which is delicious on pasta - mmmm, mmm!

    Yep.

    Dr. T,

    I will have to show my ignorance and say I do not know what a heel based rimfire bullet is. Hence...I can not answer your question.

    It was not deformed in the least and was no more than 3/4" under the hide. This rather suggests it had little velocity left upon impact. Perhaps launched from quite some distance away, who knows.

    You have to admire the "shot placement" as well (right in the big middle). ;)

    I left the bullet with the hog...but I might be able to retrieve it tomorrow if the coyotes and buzzards have not moved the carcass around too much.

    It was gold in color, a hollow-point... and showed very little rifling, that is all I can tell you about it. Well....that and it was YUCKY!

    It definitely cured me from being "curious".


    Flint.

    That's disgusting:barf: and thats a remington golden bullet .22lr I buy them all the time. It looks in amazing condition, the ones I dig out of the coons I shoot are mangled usually if they hit bone that is that one must not have.

    I can only imagine the hurt that pig was going through. I'm sure he's very appreciative of your efforts to rid him of discomfort. Score 1 Good Samaritan point for yourself!

    There's no way I would have cut that open...nasty! Good job and keep up the good work.

    Well....they eat good around here. ;)

    They do actually eat alot of corn (and other things) and our hogs are normally in excellent shape, but as you know...the heat causes them to "gas up" in just hours.

    Any distention of the belly in the pics is due solely to that (for those who didn't know).

    Well, the "heel" of a .22 rimfire bullet is the part inside the case, which is narrower than the rest of the bullet (smaller diameter). That one doesn't appear to have one, which is why it's weird to me. But it otherwise does look like a .22 rimfire bullet - I dunno. Regardless, it's not nearly big enough to dispatch, espec. with that poor placement. What kind of idgit did that I wonder.

    It's still making me hungry for some tomato-alfredo sauce on pasta, though! :)

    O.K. now I'm with ya Doc. My feeble brain just didn't remember the terminology.

    I really didn't look it at carefully. I was much too busy trying to get a quick pic and not puke.

    It was definitely a .22 and I believe someone may have identified it as a "Remington Golden". If it did not have a "heel" it would suggest the bullet was perhaps a .22 WMR (if memory serves).

    I'm sure the buzzards have completely cleaned up the carcass by now....so I might go back and see if I can locate the bullet. You've got me wondering.

    Of course, its "curiosity" that almost caused me puke to begin with! :( Apparently I'm a slow learner.

    Agreed.

    "First Class" is my guess.

    You're a sick man....DOC! ;)

    Ya know what? I think that you're exactly right; must be a .22 WMR bullet.

    How much did that pig weigh - do you know?

    I do what I can. :p

    22LR did its job

    It got the pig to leave the property of the person who put that bullet into it.

    In that regard, it worked perfectly...........

    I'm telling you that's what it is a remington golden bullet .22lr. I know what I'm talking about I coon hunt a lot and I use all .22lr remington golden bullets because they are extremly accurate in my marlin 60. When I skin the coons a lot of times I will find the bullets because while they are accurate in my gun they don't have much power and don't penetrate much so i get to see what they look like pretty often. Heres a picture to show anyone who doesn't belive
    It has a heel you just have to look close it's hard to tell from the liquid it's laying in.

    SS, it certainly looks like the Remington.

    Thanks for the pics and post.

    Flint--I'm glad it's been a few hours since dinner otherwise I would have lost it.

    Seriously that white puss is really nasty I can only imagine the smell.:barf:

    I may bookmark this thread in the event I ever need to purge myself.....:evil:

    Otherwise nice Oinker also reminds me of the Muay Thai vs. Boar thread.

    we skinned a deer one time and when we went to take the back leg off it started oozing green goo, turned out there was a 2 blade broad head stuck in it

    we also had a bear we cleaned for my boss and when i was taking the back strap off a cut my finger it hurt like a mother... sorry bou that, but we got the back strap off and the was an arrow head tucked between the spine and backstrap

    so i got a tetnus shot, 4 stitches and 4 days of antibiotics plus somedang good bear chilli we just didnt use that back strap

    Looks like you're well on your way to being a Vet. :D

    Nothing like a little exploratory surgery, how do you think the pros learn- on cadavers!

    I suspect someone was prob trying to move the hog along off the property. Maybe all they had was a .22
