Real Hogzilla? MONSTER feral hog! (photo)

A few years ago, reader Richard Trahan submitted the photo you see here to share with readers.

Trahan got a huge surprise while checking the game camera on his feeder on a Tyler County lease. He knew a bunch of hogs were hitting it but he had no idea just how big some of them were.

The monster hog on the left is standing flat-footed and nearly touching the timer/motor of the feeder.

“The bottom of the motor on this feeder is five feet, six inches from the ground,” Trahan said.

That is a one huge hog and it is on open range, with no game-proof fencing, which makes it that much more
impressive.

How big do you think this hog is?

    Accepting the claim that the timer is five plus feet off the ground I would guess close to 400 pounds. I have never seen one this big. What is more amazing is that the timer is still attached to the feeder since the hog can reach it. A gentle giant. Awesome specimen!!
