I believe the hog was probally that big, how ever I don't think it was all that "wild". Something that big isn't going to be moving to fast. Also I heard a radio interview with the kid today where he said he SHOT 16 times and HIT it 8 or 9 (**** poor acuracy rating if you ask me
) if that'* true than he had to reload that sucker 3 to 4 times.
Here'* a link for the hunting preserve where it was killed
Preserve Hog Hunts
Our European Boar and Feral Hog Hunts take place behind two miles of low fence. The terrain has everything that Lost Creek Plantation has to offer: From steep pine hillsides to hardwood creek bottoms, hogs have plenty of places to hide in the diverse cover.
Tree stands and shooting houses are provided for our hunters to use.
For the hunter seeking an exciting challenge, we offer the opportunity to spot and stalk trophy hogs.
Hogs can be hunted year round with the hunter’* weapon of choice. Preserve Hog Hunts are great for the young hunter as well as the young at heart!
I think this hog was raised that big to raise some publicity for the reserve.
