Re: 13 year old kills worlds largest hog weighing in at over half a ton!!!

did anyone read some of the negative comments on the site monsterpig.com

i love the one "you fat $hit how did you run 3 miles" thats a classic one. i really doubt that the pig was 9 ft long. when they are hauling the pig out with the tractor it looks way smaller than all the other pictures.

I've only hunted once because I hate cold weather and getting up early, but come from a long line of ethical hunters. There is a big difference between a hunt like this and a hunt on a 30,000 acre Texas ranch with no fences. I checked the website and this preserve was indeed fenced, but I'm not even sure a fence could contain an animal this size if it saw something on the other side it really wanted.

The boy had to shoot the pig eight times to kill it. The thing was as big as a grizzly bear with a much tougher hide. This is really disgraceful. A lot of Alaskan outfitters carry a gun like his as a backup, not their primary weapon. Furthermore, this boy killed his first deer at five. It was probably chained to a tree. I started shooting at nine, but I certainly wasn't hunting. These idiots have done more for the anti-hunters than they could have imagined.

Re: 13 year old kills worlds largest hog weighing in at over half a ton!!!

A few things to consider...

A) Hogs don't get fenced in...they can dig under a fence in minutes...
B) There's real danger in hunting these things...They can really mess you up...and eat you if you're stuck there...
C) I hunt hogs with a 360 Ultra Mag....a 30.06 minimum...less than that is just pissing the thing off...their collar bones are SO thick it's ridiculous

I don't have a problem at all with preserve hunting (depending on the size, of course, I'm not advocating hunting at a petting zoo!), but for this kid to be Hog hunting on the ground with a pistol.....that's just stupid....maybe he was trying for a Darwin award?

*****I retract this statement...he had 2 guides with him with High powered rifles trained on it... I think it's an awesome story!******

There is a short 5 minute interview on CNN with this kid and his father detailing the hunt.

I pretty much agree with Vince. I'm not really anti-hunting, but there are enough overpopulated animals (like the deer in WV where I grew up) that you can do all of your hunting and not go after crazy and interesting anomolies. I just don't understand the mind set behind seeing something you've never seen before and deciding that your best option is to shoot it over and over until it is dead.

Then again I've also never liked the hunters (I know that most aren't like this) who get very "macho" and brag about their big kills. Yeah that sure is difficult taking a high-power rifle/ crossbow/ pistol and hiding out from an animal in camo then shooting it repeatedly until it dies....what a true warrior you are. (rolling my eyes) Now if some hunter wants to strip naked and chase an animal down and beat it to death he can brag all he wants.

but i digress.....

From the plantation's website.

Preserve Hog Hunts
Our European Boar and Feral Hog Hunts take place behind two miles of low fence. The terrain has everything that Lost Creek Plantation has to offer: From steep pine hillsides to hardwood creek bottoms, hogs have plenty of places to hide in the diverse cover.

Tree stands and shooting houses are provided for our hunters to use.

For the hunter seeking an exciting challenge, we offer the opportunity to spot and stalk trophy hogs.

Hogs can be hunted year round with the hunterís weapon of choice. Preserve Hog Hunts are great for the young hunter as well as the young at heart!
Two miles of fence translates into roughly .25-.30 square miles or 160-190 acres. Almost a petting zoo for an animal that size.

We will see more animals like this and they will all wind up dead. That is why they were bred. The fact that they are being bred is to satisfy the macho type hunters. Wild boar ribs and sausage tastes really good when the animal is about 200 pounds. This hog will probably taste like crap.

BS. They must have been chasing it in circles.

Darn good thing he killed it.

It's behavior pattern clearly showed that it deserved to die.

It was obviously going to become a threat to society and it would have eventually overturned the government and ruled the planet by jumping from rooftop to rooftop crushing innocent peoples homes with it's mighty evil hooves.

Thank goodness that's no longer going to happen, and mercifully no more homes or lives will be lost because now, it's reign of terror has been ended.
