    I couldn't feel anything but sadness after reading that. And to classify it as an accomplishment? Just makes me sick. Figures that fox would glorify it.

    1) Alabama
    2) Kid with gun
    3) target he could not miss.


    But seriously this is probably a domesticated pig that has gone feral, could be extremely dangerous because it wont fear humans.
    I remember when I used to live in a farming/forestry community twice a year groups would form to hunt the feral pigs because they were dangerous to people and livestock.

    LOL..

    I agree tho. That swine should not have been killed. Give the kid a camera instead of a gun.

    What caliber pistol was it? Must have taken quite a bit to bring something that big down. Or the kid had a good/lucky shot.

    Feral hogs aren't native to the continent. They were introduced by Hernando DeSoto into southwest Florida in 1539. Today, many view feral hogs as a threat to the native environment, including the Invasive Species Specialist Group which lists feral pigs as number 90 of the world's 100 worst invasive species.

    From the article:

    "He said he shot the huge animal eight times with a .50-caliber revolver and chased it for three hours through hilly woods before finishing it off with a point-blank shot."

    At first I would say its fake, but you never can know. I guess the taxidermist did see it, but then again, who knows how legit he is.

    Exactly how many eleven-year olds are running around down there with .50 caliber pistols?

    Its like how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop... the world may never know.

    Haha, true, though thats closer to the truth near some of the areas I live near.

    Uh-oh, better watch out for them rednecks with their guns. :D

    ummm did anyone else notice this? This has gotta be a very special grammatical issue cause last I checked most things stopped growing after being killed, even creatures as hardcore as wild boars...

    With a pistol? This kid is something else. I'd hate to have to haul that back to the the truck. I have hunted wild pigs and have carried out wild boars weighing around 190-200lbs. It was tough. This thing is huge.

    In case you were wondering, the head fat is the tastiest part. Cut it off, boil it, pour it into a pan, let it cool, cut it up and eat it. Mmmmmmm, better than bacon.

    No offense to anyone out there but who f*** lets an 11 year old shoot a .50 cal handgun and hunt a large animal which then takes him three bloody hours to finally kill. while Daddy and buddy watch with the long rifles...

    Bad hunting practice.

    OK I have been shooting since I was 4, but I was never let to hunt alone until well into my teens and even then mostly bow hunting. When I shot at something I did not spend the next three hours looking for it. I waited until I had the best chance and the animal usually did not even jump.

    ^^Agreed, who the hell does that? I mean sure, it's Alabama...:rolleyes: ;)

    I'm kidding with you alabamians, we arkansans are exactly the same (though I think this kid may have been a little off the nut...)

    " ..... And the award for the number one most invasive species goes to ...... the .. white man!"

    Absolutely sick rotten/story/boy/family/practice.

    Zim called it first and was absolutely right.
