HUGE

Short of those 'I wonder if its fake' hogzilla stories, those are the biggest feral hogs I have ever seen.  They sure were eating well somewhere.  Where did you find those big pigs? More importantly, how can someone else (liek me!) get access to that hunting ground????

My goodness, those are some huge hogs!!  If they're good eating, you must end up with a grundle of meat.  I went to Mississippi a few years ago and hunted with a bow but we didn't see anything that big.  All I can say is "WOW"!!  And of course, congratulations.

Hunter - those are some

Hunter - those are some really nice looking hogs! They appear to be pretty large - what are they, around 200-250?

We now have lots of them here in Michigan, something that was unheard of just 10 years ago - maybe even less. I guess they escaped from some of the fenced hunting "ranches" and began repopulating in the wild. I put "ranches" in parentheses because here in this state, our ranches are usually one square mile or less - nothing like the huge ranches in the western states that may cover thousands of acres.

I have a friend whose family established a ranch a few years ago that is slightly under a square mile. I don't know if they have introduced pigs on it, or if they just have whitetail hunts, but I know they had some trouble keeping the deer in. I can't imagine what it entails to try to keep pigs fenced in - the way they like to dig!

Thanks for posting these pictures - I imagine the hunts were pretty exciting, too.
