Channel K-10, the NBC affilate in Sherman, just did a film clip on their Noon News about a huge hog taken by a Cross Bow hunter while deer hunting this last weekend. The hunter said he thought it was a cow coming thru the brush towards the plowed field he was hunting over out of a ladder stand. The hunter hit the hog twice from the stand, and with his last arrow hit the hog again with a double lung shot off the ground from short range when the hog got up to attack as the hunter approached the wounded hog. The clip showed the hog suspended from a front end loader's bucket at full vertical extension and was considerably longer than the 6' tall hunter. The clip also showed a spokes person from OF&G I think it was commenting on all the damage to crops and wildlife by hogs and the need to eradicate them.

Finding a pig that big in the wild is nearly unheard of! Not saying it cant happen but the odds are low. I cant wait to see the pics.

Ya'll go pull up the story online at the TV station's website...that's why I listed the source of the story I saw about an hour ago.

Yes there was some comment on a possibilty/probability that the critter was either escaped domestic raised, or born to an escaped domestic hog. The hog was mostly black with white bands or large patch's across the body.

Either way, one camera angle showed a lower right? cutter that looked exceptionally long, and then another camera angle with the lips down in a normal head on position and both the top & bottom cutters were umm I'm guessing prolly exposed 3-4"s or better. Never did see anyone with a tape measure or hear an explanation of how they weighed the hog or where in Oklahoma the hog was killed ...just a continual voice over by the talking head of "Gollleee...that sure is a Biiig Hog".

Understand, the total length of the film clip including all the interviews was prolly only 3 minutes of on air time....and I am staring almost speechless at the TV screen with my wife of 42 years yakking the whole time trying to tell me what to look at...as per normal! I hope the website has more film of this porker and a lot less grinning Aw Shucks face time & talking by the people on screen!

that looks suspiciously like a farm hog that escaped

specifically, it looks just like the hampshire hogs i used to raise..

Sooo. you're walking to the stand at 4:30 a.m., pitch black, you're using as little light as is necessary so as not to spook any deer, and you accientally walk up on and surprise THIS thing...it snorts and whirls to charge you.

For me...the question is not "will I soil myself?" so much as a question of quantity... eek2
