come to think of it, it does look like a hoax.

Uncle Bob,DH said it looked like they set the kid back further for photo to make it look bigger.It was also said when they had got the first Hogzilla that was that big they must have taken different hog parts of other hogs to create that big of a hog they also had supposedly buried the original before taking its photo to let decompose so it would be hard to really know its size.I guarantee they would have taken tons of pictures before putting that big of a hog in the ground.This one looks real but who really knows unless you were there.Looks pretty real to me.

Miss JPM...

I've seen a lot of 1000 lb steers, so I dunno. It 'appears' that the kid is leaning on the hog. Anyway I only believe 1/2 of what I see and almost 0 of what I read on the net...Ha! Ha!

Wonder where they plan on hanging the head? They had some pretty big boars on the TV series Lost. If they had Emeril to make sausage, they might still be on the air.

I believe the size of the animal was true.....I just don't believe the kid was on the honor roll!!!

BIGGER than Hogzilla
The caliper pistol this kid used is too big for a kid to shoot it takes alot of strength to shoot a gun that big and actually hit your target no wonder 8 shots later he still didnt manage to take it down.

LOL @ taking over 3 hours and multiple rounds with a .50 Caliber to kill a hog in an enclosed area.

LOL Louder at it being "His Biggest Accomplishment"

This will probably ring true when he ends up bagging groceries at Kroger.

It takes on a slightly different significance when you read the story and learn the "enclosed area" was a 2500 acre hunting preserve.
