Giant Hog Finally Caught After Years of Hunting


They called it “Hogzilla.”

North Carolina hunters had been after it for years, to the point that it had become a local legend. Why? This more-than 500-lb. wild hog had been shocking hunters and campers in eastern North Carolina for quite some time, but they only time it had been shot was on a trail camera. Until now. Hunter Jett Webb spent a month tracking the enormous beast, and his diligence paid off.

86665Jett used sweet-tasting corn and a night-hunting light to capture the hog.

He shot it from an elevated tree in the Indian Woods, North Carolina, using an AR-10 rifle.

Members of the local White Oak Ranch Hunting Club had been trying to catch the best for years.
