Sticking pigs

I have had a lot of time watching YouTube videos recently as had knee surgery.

Some common trend I have seen is just sticking pigs in through behind front leg. I have always been taught to flip pigs even a decent boar and stick in to the jugular aiming toward the heart but really all you need is the jugular. I see alot of massive swords carried that is kind of unnecessary.

I raise this concern as I see alot of new hunters just stabbing away through the side trying to hit the sweet spot but often missing resulting in just stab wounds and meat damaging.

Anyway keen to hear what you

Maybe just

Cheers.

Always tipped them over and stuck through the throat.
Seen too much damage done behind the shoulder.

95% flip and stick normal although the odd time usually very steep and dogs refusing to let go weve gone from behind the shoulder and also a couple times last year when we were in waist deep water.

Flip them if I can.
Nothing wrong with side sticking though if Pig canít be flipped.

Certainly more than one way to skin a cat!

I was shown to flip the pig and then just punch your knife through the brisket straight into the heart. Have just continued doing so, never had an issues doing it that way.

Have had to do the side stick through the low ribs a few times, right into the heart when i've not been able to flip it due to dogs hanging off.

Pretty common for us in Australia to side stick a pig. A lot of guys do flip and stick down the throat if they are boxing pigs for export. The major advantage to side sticking is your hands are free from the business end if a dog runs in to hold again.

Every hunt is different. If you sidestick a pig properly it falls over pretty quickly.

Just looking through this thread again. Another thought is just general knowledge of pig anatomy. If you are aware of it theres no reason why you can't nail the sweet spot first time every time from the side.

Have seen people spasing out when sticking, generally you can also note the whole bail up / hold is all out of control too.

Comes down to using your top too inches! Smiley
