The story goes that you are supposed to aim a little low when shooting both uphill and downhill. I don't think the bullet would have dropped enough to make you miss. You probably just saw the hog, got happy, and slapped the trigger....happens to the best of us! :D

EDIT....Well I take that back. After playing with a ballistic program, if you are hitting an inch low at 100, you could be more than four inches low at 125 and NINE inches at 150....which amazed me....I am not too familiar with them pumpkin heavers that some of you guys like! :D Only way to know for sure is set up a target and shoot it. That much of a drop combined with excitement sure could cause a miss.
