Everyone around here shoots them behind the ear... The between the eyes shot isnt that great because pigs have a rather thick skull, AND Pigs cannot see directly in front of them, theres a blind spot so if they cant see something and it makes a noise they instinctivly jump... Not to mention animals can sense when something "bad" is about to happen which makes them more jumpy. Behind the ear its so much safer... Just walk along side the pig and pointing the gun toward the nose fire directing behind the ear... Most times they dont even jump as you pull the trigger... they just fall over when its done... Hope this helps.......
