#1. He was not 500lbs.How fast can you reload that thing with a angry 500lb hog charging
I betcha he could swap ends faster than you think. But you would be a small target.#1. He was not 500lbs.
#2. He would not charge if you shot at him.
#3. If you shoot them in the ear its the end if the story.
#4. If I did happen to be wrong about 1-3, a 500lb hog would not be very agile.
No where did I make any claims about being a great hunter, Ive missed more than Ive killed, but I have been around enough hogs to know that most people grossly over estimate their weights and that I've never seen, shot, or had a buddy shoot, anything remotely close to 500 lbs.I don’t know man, it just seemed like an arrogant statement. I’m sure you’re best hog hunter that ever lived and have stacked dump trucks of dead hogs. However, animals get to certain sizes based on genetics and environment. Wild hogs are usually just descendants of feral domestic hogs but some were intentionally introduced for hunting like the Russian varieties that get 700lb +
I can’t say whether the hog in OP was that big or not because I wasn’t there. I’m gonna venture a guess and say you weren’t either.
Killin that many yall obviously don’t let em get old enoughWe kill more than your average Arkansas ******* on my place- typically 200+/year. And I’m not going to say there isn’t a 500 lb hog in AR. But I’ll say this, I haven’t seen but one over 300 lbs that wasn’t barred. From what I’ve seen, feral hogs have to move too much to put that kind of weight on. Most of your boars will top out at 250-275. Got a pic of one that went 396, it was surreal. Need to find that.
