Back in my younger days when we slaughtered a hog we would shoot them usually just above the eyes in the top of the head and instantly slit the throat to bleed them which is pretty much as you described. As soon as all of the blood was drained (as much as possible) the pig would then be placed in a very large cast iron pot with a fairly large fire built under and around the pot to boil water which helps to remove the hair. After that the hanging and skinning begins. Not for someone with a weak stomach but it was definitely very quick and humane. Prayers and blessings were offered before the kill for the pigs life and also for the food it provided our families. Nothing went to waste.

Looking forwards to any pics of your feast!

Never heard of the knife in the heart, all I have ever heard of is neck cut. But, who am I to question, I just eat it.

Remember this is from a different culture and different country. Apparently rednecks evolve differently when secluded from each other:-)

We get hot water going in pot and pour it over the pig with a small pan. Then remove most hair. After that he gets bath and shave with dish soap and razors. We eat all the skin, nothing worst then having a hair on it. All heat is provided by wood. The large pot will hold the whole pig including the rendered lard after butcher. The freshly rendered lard is good enough to put on ice cream.

Yep. The above two were how I've seen it done. A friend of mine's father was the local farming communities "pig whisperer" and the animal was always relaxed right before the shot.
