This sow and boar were part of a larger group making their way down to a crop paddock before sunrise. Wild pigs in a group in the forest make quite a lot of noise. With some care you can follow a group in the half light of dawn and position yourself to take one or more shots when the time is right. The shooting started when the largest boar in the group (right side) was under 40m and standing still.
