Battle Of The Big Boars… NC vs. TX

January 27, 2015

Funny this should be going on just now, as I’m setting my sights on the move from TX back to the old stomping grounds in NC, but there you go.

First, I read about this monstrosity, taken in northern Texas.  Yeah, read the article and you’ll see that these fellas caught (not shot, but caught) a 790 pound boar hog!  That’s one, big, pig!

From the article:

“When I first saw him, Blaine’s dog looked like an earring or some kind of jewelry hanging off the hog’s head, but it really wasn’t until we got ahold of the hog that I realized how big and powerful this animal was,” Walton said. “We’ve tied hundreds of hogs and there has never been anything like this boar.”

I bet!  Anyway, that not-so-little piggy is going to market (pending veterinary exam to verify no parasites or disease).

And then there was this big sucker, from North Carolina, 707 pounds!

I don’t know what’s going on, but wild hogs in this weight class are supposed to be pretty rare.  Makes me want to load up the .325wsm and get out there!

    Kat, I think I sense a little bait and switch here.

    Dave, yikes is right… but, that’s an AWFUL lot of pork chops!

    And John, yeah… the dinghy isn’t gonna cut it.
