Default East Texas hog attack this morning

Happened in Anderson county this morning a buddy of ours was walking to his stand when this hog was under his feeder and stop his ground! Made a swipe and knocked him to the ground! He only could use his Bowtech destroyer to fend him off! He didn't think anything of it and got on the stand . He come out right at first light and put 5 arrows in him...

This is my biggest fear walking to my blind. That's why I rock a pistol in hand till I'm settled in. That's a big Ol boar!

I used to have a hog that would hang out and wait for the feeder to go off I guess. When you walked in to the stand it would growl and make all kinds of bad noises. In the dark I would shoot up the tree like a cat squirrel.

Although 99.9% of the hogs will head out there is still that 0.1% that would just as soon tear you a new one as back down. I have seen 1 or 2 that I am pretty sure would come after you if you met up in the woods

Glad your buddy is OK and glad the "maneater" is dead
