A broken shoulder will put a hog down on the spot, just as it will with a deer or other game animal. This can be a great help, allowing for a fast follow-up shot if it’s necessary. Ideally, you don’t want to have to trail your animal – you want to kill it quickly and efficiently, and in the case of a mature hog, you don’t want it coming after you with those nasty sharp tusks.
