    My Goodness,

    Thats amazing. We use to hunt in an area along the Buckatunna creek and they said there was hogs big enough to carry you off down in there. It was on the MS/AL line. All the years that we roamed the 100+ acres, we never came across any hogs. Saw where they had wallered and tracks and such, but never any hogs. Stopped a hunter going in there one day and he told us to always keep a BIG tree within running distance...we were in a broomsage field one afternoon and we had heard something up ahead of us. All I could do was look at my husband and say, in so many words ... darn No Tree. :lol:Nvr saw anything but darn if that Hog wouldve been a monster to stumble on. :crazy:

    Thanks for sharing.

    Disclaimer: I ain't a hog-hunter :wink:

    Was "Hogzilla" ever verified? If I recall the story, it was "shot & buried" with a backhoe :roll_eyes:.

    This new hog looks like a bogus pic to me, look how far the kid is posed behind the hog, and why prop the hogs head up on a log???

    I smell a Photoshop-job..................

    lol, I'm one of them "glass half-empty" kinda guys.....after looking at the pic again, what are the odds of this hog being killed, folding-up & landing on it's belly? If it was rolled for the pic, how long would it have taken to round-up enough muscle to do so, and then why does it appear to still have a wet/muddy side when the surrounding groung is dry as a bone? And do hogs expire with an open mouth? I think it was a (much) smaller hog, still breathin', wallerin' & squealin' when it had it's pic taken.

    Inquiring minds want to know..................

    Yes, The original Hogzilla was dug up and verified by a team of scientists. They determined that hog weighed around 750 lbs. They also found through DNA tests that it was half domestic and half wild.
    The original Hogzilla was eating a certain fish food at a fish farm, the food was designed to make the fish grow very fast. There was a show on the discovery channel about this. Hope you never bump in to one of these hogs in the woods without a gun!

    Thanks for the info Tom, I'd wondered about it after it (the story) kind of faded away. Still.....an interesting story.

    lol, no worries, my Ruger is my "American Express".......never leave home without it :wink:

    Thanks

    Not sure if this a fake picture or not. If it is then shame on them. If it isn't then congrats to the kid. I guess we will all have to wait to see how it turns out.

    Looks fake to me. I'll believe it after I see the 11 yr old kid fire his .50 cal 8 times.

    I'm with you, Capt Steve - and if he did hit it 8 times as claimed, I'd like to know where the first 7 rounds hit, 'cos a 50 cal round just about anywhere would do serious damage - can't see how the porker survived for three hours wounded. Quote from Smith and Wesson, re their 50 cal revolver -It fires a new .50 calibre cartridge that the company said "produces nearly three times the muzzle energy of the .44 - or enough stopping power to bring down a charging bear." Muzzle velocity is rated at 2600 foot/lb for a standard round.

    Good luck to the kid if the story is real - though the idea of an 11 year old running through the woods with a 50 cal revolver is a bit scary.

    I seen a show a few weeks ago on discovery or something like that about it. I think it was only like 750lbs and maybe 7-8 foot. Can't remember correctly but it's legend was bigger than actual hog. As for that hog in the picture i don't what the heck that is. If its good photoshopping or the real deal. Guess only time will tell cause thats a monster hog.
