    I bet that was hard to get on that truck and had to get help to carry out, I imagine he was tearin up a lot of land. Big Hog should be your new nickname

    Hogs this size is good to eat but the pigs are the best. As they get older there meat gets tuffer and its hard to cook it so you can tender it up.

    Great hunting , Angus. Was it damaging crops? Threatening livestock? Give us more details on how you bagged this monster.I have seen one quite a bit larger but it was in Texas. Well done. Do you know JohnBledsoe? He’s a Walnut Hill resident and avid hunter.

    Good Hunt. Are feral hogs still edible when they get that large?
