I've seen my share of hogs but this one takes the cake..........or does it????

 

     

 

Look at the kid's head in relation to the pig's head.  This was either photoshopped or he is sitting ten feet behind the pig like the old tick fish photos.

 

Just for the fun of it I photoshopped even more, I simply moved him closer to the pig's head so that you can see how easily the entire kid would fit in the pig's mouth.

try this -

 

find out exactly what make/model that 50 cal is (11 year old w/ a 50 cal?....impressive) - find the exact length.

 

select the gun and duplicate it - use it as a 'ruler' - and find out how big that hog is.

 

that's what i would do, if i knew pistols better than i do.  It looks doctored to me.

I've looked at the site that the kid's dad has up.  http://www.monsterpig.com

 

They're saying that he was using a S&W Model 500, .50 cal, 6 1/2" barrel.

 

Have you read some of those negative comments on that site?  Sheesh, where do some of the people get the nerve?

They are definitely using the ol' "hunter far behind the kill" trick in that photo, as well as in the other pics taken of that hog, so the apparent visual size is exaggerated.  As someone who has used that trick on many occasions to screw with my buddies, I can recognize it in an instant.  Anytime you see the lower half of the hunter's body obscured behind the animal, clearly not holding onto the animal's head, you can be reasonably certain they are playing games with perspective.

 

However, doctored pic or not, it still looks like a very large hog, and if the reported weight is accurate, it's extremely rare for a pig to get anywhere near that large in the wild.

Here's something to think about: This hog was killed a couple hours drive rom my home. The person who owned the scales said he was not at his shop when they brought it in. The claimed weight of the hog was 1051 lbs. The owner of the scales says the scales only weigh to the nearest ten lbs. Also, no one other than the hunting party witnessed the animal before all was taken to be made in to sausage. Sounds an awful lot like the latest "biggest bass " story to me. If I had killed such a claimed creature, you can rest assured everyone in the country with a tv or newspaper access would know it as a proven kill. Does Bass Pro Shop trophy sound about right?

It made our local (Dallas) prime time news last night and this morning.  They even had the kid on the phone.  The story now is that the hog was not wild and was put in the high fenced area just for him to "hunt" it.  The family has even been getting death threats.

 

All over a little bacon..........I mean a lot of bacon.

The more I see and hear about this kill, the more I think it's bogus.

 

-- The posing of the photos, with the group always standing behind the hog, playing games with perspective.

-- Nobody outside of the group witnessed either the hunt or the carcass itself.

-- It was processed before the weight could be verified by anyone else.

-- The discrepancy with the scale's resolution and the claimed weight, and the fact the owner of the scale didn't witness it being weighed.

-- The details of the hunt changed.

 

All seemed to add up to one thing:  the whole story stinks, and the worst part about it is:  what is this whole ordeal teaching the kid about integrity?

very good points, RD. it does stink.

 

this is not a good start to the life of a responsible sportsman.

 

This type thing hurts the outdoorsmen and women that ARE responsible and respectful.

 

oh well.  and if it's true they pinned the animal for a 'hunt',  that's even worse.

I've seen quite a few wild hogs and even killed some around here. If you look at the skull, it's not so big. Looking at the pic of him hanging, I would say 700 - 800 lbs. which is not so unheard of. Size of hog seems to change with each photo. I'll say it again: I would have had "proof " from hundreds of people, including State wildlife agencies, before sending him to the "grinder".

I think this will be revealed as a hoax very soon.  The link above does a pretty good job of debunking the photos.  It's shameful the father was touting their Christian faith on the www.monsterpig.com website, all the while perpetrating a scam.

Hey guys,

I just read in the Mobile Press- Register that the hog was raised on a farm . The farmer was getting out of the business, so he sold the hog to the plantation owner just 4 days before the kill. He said the hog was more or less a pet that had gotten too big to do anything with.

I'll lick his a%$se if he can chase a pig for 3 hours. Read my story on the compleat pig hunter, a pig that size will not go 3 hours, neither will a kid that size. So I say bulls%$# on all accounts.
