    Default Another Big one down!

    It was a slow start for both our baits....Our friend John was hunting and maintaining one of the baits when this hog came in hungry. There was nothing in his stomach but a hand full of grass... He was measured at 6'11 1/2 on the carcass, skull was 18 13/16 (F&G also said about 5 years old)......Those of you who know my hubby know he's not a small man. It was all these two guys could do to transfer this big guy from the wheeler to the truck.....And yes, this is a local hog and we suspect he's kin to my hog (6'11, 20 inch skull, 25 years old) taken a few years ago (same area).

    Thanks Jess! Yea, the video isn't all that great I had stayed back at the truck and didn't go back in with them.....

    After the other comments on the other "hog" thread I had debated on even posting it.

    Very nice! Finally watched the videos on this forum. Would be cool to get into that. Talked about it this year, but as far as we got. Any vids of it being shot? What did his use for a weapon?

    Nope, he was the only one in there when he shot it. He was using a 7mm mag.
