    Maybe it died of a heart attack after being shot with a airrifle.

    I agree with Boondock. This stinks. The whole video clip seems a set up. The way it pans when the "hunter" is stalking etc. Bullocks!

    The rifle appears to be a Hunter-1250 and the pellet is allegedly a Raptor PBA.

    The boar was tied in place, in my opinion. This was a "canned" so-called "hunt".

    that is a load of crap and is encouraging people that may not have enough skill or the right equiptment to shoot animals that are way to big to be shot with an airrifle especialy a gamo springer...i would even hesitate to shoot that pig with a 30ft/ibs weihrauch never mind that piece of crap!!

    That's just stupid. Hope this thing don't lead to idiots running around trying to shoot all types of animals with normal airguns.

    It don't think it is entirely impossible, I have been reading on some medical journals and every year that are people who get killed with non-FAC (<12 ft/lbs) airgun. The pellets just happen to pass via a path of min resistence before reaching the vita areas.....

    BUT, just because it COULD kill a boar doesn't mean a thing, you probably have to do it 100 times before you get it right.... There are people kill will drop stone dead after getting shot with a .22 short in the gut but chances are most won't, hence .308 battle rifles and center fire serivce pistols...

    Not ethical hunting to say the least... I won't even try to do it with a 9mmPara, the min for boar is in the 357mag class and most hunters use gun much more powerful than that.....

    Even if it is possible I think it is very irresponsible to post such a video and on a manufactures site at that! I will be emailing GAMO to that effect and strongly suggest that all readers of this forum, foreign and domestic do the same. This king of thing does a lot of damage to our sport and provides even more ammunition to the anti gun section.
    I have said in the past that I also do not think the Forum is the appropriate place for discussing “air rifle hunting” or the posting of pictures of such as it is an open forum. If the discussions or an indiscreet picture is posted it can be taken way out of context and cast a shadow on our sport. If anyone wants to do something stupid with their air rifle then at least have the presence of mind to shut up about it!
