I saw a photo album on BGH last night on wild hogs and got to remembering back about this story – see link below.
To say that this is a massive hog would be similar to saying that King Kong was a good sized Gorilla!
There is little doubt that this is one of the largest hogs ever taken in America – but if I recall correctly – there was more to the story.
Seems as though this hog was reported to have been domesticated at one time and that some locals still fed it from time to time – which would lead you to believe that it was slightly less than “wild”.
I mean in no way to diminish the accomplishment of the young man – it was reported initially that he was led into the hunt with no knowledge of the pig’s origin.
At any rate, just sharing the photograph is worthy – look at the dimension of the beast!
