How far can you really stand behind a hog to take a picture??? Definitely a big pig but that guys looks like he is in another county behind that hog!

By comparison that hogs eye is about 6" wide with 3" wide cutters and a witch doctor has shrunken all of their heads. probably 1200 lbs.

Yeah, at first we thought that using 10" pipe and making it 30' tall was overkill, but now we're glad we did

If you will notice, the truck in the picture is not one that is sold within the United States. That was taken in a foreign country and even then I would question the authenticity.
You can do anything you want to a picture in Photoshop.

Look at the size of the leaves on the weeds in picture #3 compared to the pig (proper proportion) and then to the person (out of proportion). It's either a doctored picture, or he's 10 feet behind it when the shutter was snapped. IMHO.

Boomerball- that hog was shot with the Dunderhead 2000. One was given to me as a gift about 15 years ago and we finally found something big enough to test it out on.

I did some hog hunting in Turkey 20 plus years ago and that size hog are pretty common. The turks won't eat them are hunt them. We followed a hog trail that you could drive a VW bug through. Shot one monster but the political climate forced us to get out before we were done tracking. Back on the hop and home, in a hurry.
