Two Texas Good Old Boys Kill 460-Pound Feral Hog with a Knife
PROCTOR, TX – A 17-year-old and a 20-year-old killed a huge feral hog with a knife in central Texas this week.
According to New12Now, on July 30, Nathan Wright, 17, and Colton Roberts, 20, killed a 460 lbs feral hog.
"It might have been the biggest hog we've been upon," Colton Roberts said. "But never expected to catch one that big."
Besides the hog being massive the interesting part about the hunt was that the guys killed the near 500 pound beast with a knife.
"It's just a big adrenaline rush for us is what it is," Nathan Wright said. "And you get up there close and you get a big adrenaline rush and I guess that's what keeps us stuck to the game."
The largest hog ever killed on record weighted in at an unbelievable 1,051 pounds. A nearby taxidermist measured that animal and reported that its tusks were at least 5 inches long. It was killed by an 11-year-old boy with a .50 caliber revolver in Delta, Alabama.
