This past weekend we had a square dance and roasted a hog out here on the Curley homestead. My daughter took a bunch of pictures of the hog slaughter process for the book I am working on (hope to be available late in fall or early winter) on how to slaughter and butcher a hog. Here is a sample of some of the pictures she took.
The first picture was taken actually after the bullet was fired. The hog was standing up for the shot, but you can see here that the back legs are down.
