Boy that story sounds pretty fishy to me! If you'd really shot a hog that big, would you care that the head was too big? That's like saying I shot a 30 point buck, but the rack was too big so I didn't mount it. I suppose if the guy's a guide & has shot of ton of hogs he doesn't care about the average hog, but if that's legit, it's anything but average.

Taek a look at the shadows behind the guys legs and then look for the shadow that should be thrown by the hog onto the guy. You don't see any, right? Gee wonder why? Cause it's a fake picture.

I do not know if that is real or not. I do know that a ranch in Texass had a 1000 pig last year and a six footed pig before that. I hunted that ranch for the price it was perfect my dad and I got a hog each and than the fishing was excellent. All meals and lodging included 300.00 pp. It was great. SUcky drive down there though.

Just read the CNN article on Hogzilla and it has to be the biggest bunch of talk I've heard in a long time. I guarantee those guys are laughing themselves to death over the few suckers who believe them.

I remembered this post and just saw an article on it so I thought I would post it.....looks like it was real afterall..

"By ELLIOTT MINOR, Associated Press Writer

ALAPAHA, Ga. - A team of National Geographic (news - web sites) experts has confirmed south Georgia's monster hog, known to locals as Hogzilla, was indeed real — and really, really big.

They also noted the super swine didn't quite live up to the 1,000-pound, 12-foot hype generated when Hogzilla was caught on a farm last summer and photographed hanging from a backhoe."

Did anyone see that National Geographic forensic science show on proving the legend of Hogzilla on the NatGeographic channel a few nights ago? They dug up the carcass of this exact beast and took measurements and DNA samples. Guess this guy was a cross between a boar and a domestic hog.

Very very good show if it replays again.

Just checked Tivo and it replays at 2am on the 15th of August on NGC

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
