Been after this boar for three years and finally got him this weekend on my birth day. He weighed 405. Shot with a 7mm 08.

A true hogzilla.



Would you mind telling the story that goes along with your XL-Jumbo hog?

Thanks guys, this hog was about 80 yards from the stand I was hunting from. I shot the hog at 9:30 and spent about 30 minutes looking for it in a thicket before deciding to give up until morning. Looking for this guy in dark wasn't something up I liked very much any way. Got back in stand just to see if another one might come out and got the coyote at midnight standing a couple feet from a dirt hole set I had pulled my trap from last day of the season. It was 120 yards from stand and the bullet did major damage to the hide.
Thanks again,
Jack

While I was hunting for one to eat this one is to old for table fair. He will keep next year's fur bears happy and content for the next month or two. If they are feeding on him they won't be killing turkeys or deer. I did take the skull and intend to try and make a euro mount with it. The other reason to take this brute is simply safety. My family spends a lot of time in this area and hogs like this aren't afraid of any thing. My nephew shot a 300 pounder last year that chased of a good size black bear when it came to the feeder. A friend of my nephew's was knocked down by a pig and run over by several piglets going into a bear stand before daylight in The fall. He was bruised up pretty bad. If this one had been with them it could have been much worse. This happens to him even while carrying a rifle that he was still able to kill one of them with after being trampled.

I caught 14 since Friday and it would have taken most of them weighed together to make that hog. Lol. Nice hog.

They all originally come from Russians. The domestic hogs we raise today are nothing more than Russians carefully bred (inbred in many cases) to create pretty, tasty pigs.
After several generations in the wild, without any kind of selective breeding, many of those later generations revert back to the form of the original Russians.
