...great lessons for sure... Nothing as dramatic but I was charged by a woodchuck and had another play dead and snap at me when I poked at him with stick...grabbed that stick and chewed it badly...glad it wasn't my finger...

Most will run away as fast as their fat legs will go.

That being said I have had one or two take a disliking to my scent and come looking for me. Maybe they thought I was after their " Ladies "...lol

The only time I got a little scared was walking in from my stand in the dark and had one VERY close grunting and stomping but I could not see the rascal

Any animal we hunt can be "dangerous" at times.

But that title should be saved for the "Big 5", Grizz/Brown/Polar bears, and the like....Those are DANGEROUS critters!!

agreed

I love hog hunting and didnt see much about it until I opened dangerous game. who would have thought it ?!

I can tell you first hand how dangerous hogs are.
I remember about 18 years ago shooting a wild pig (in the North West of Western Australia) at close range (within 15 meters) in the chest with a shotgun, using a 12 gauge solid slug.
I figured a 1oz solid slug at close range would be ample to drop a feral pig... I was definitely wrong on this occasion!
I hit it, but instead of dropping, it turned and came at me.
Luckily a friend of mine had his .30-06 loaded and ready, and managed to shoot it in the head before it got to me.
Stretched out it was about 7'.
Unfortunately I had no way to weigh it, so I can't tell you how heavy it was. But it was bloody heavy... Decent set of tusks on it too!
If it got to me before my friend shot it, I doubt I'd be here to tell the tale... I'm pretty sure I had to change my underwear after that encounter too! [Eek!] [scared]

I've been charged 3 times....the 1st one I side stepped....the 2nd two I paralized with shots just past the jaw into the spine....one was a buiser. My friend Curt Cabrera put another arrow into him as he was convulsing.....

I'll see if I can find a pic.
