The biggest hog i have ever seen
Time to tell about the biggest hog I’ve ever seen in my life. Let’s get started.
It was September. We gathered 5 hunters in our hunter`s house. We all talked and split into our hunting tree stands. The evening was cold but very beautiful. The sky was clear, the stars were shining brightly. From time to time I heard a crackle in the forest, but animals did not come to my place. Sometimes it happens. Although I felt happy spending time in nature.
The light was soon replaced by darkness. I decided to write a message to colleagues “I ask if there is any action in their places?” Everyone except my father answers that no. If a person does not write then something is. I’m curious and waiting for the message or shot to sound. After 5 minutes I hear a shot. I am writing a message with the question “did you hit it?”. There is no answer again. I’m already wondering what’s going on there. After another 30 minutes my father calls and says “I shot a big boar, I hit him but he ran into the forest.” He continues: I hear the boar but can’t go because I doesn’t have a flashlight.
Well, I finished my hunt. I climb out of the tree stand. I’m going to the car. I also call for other colleagues and tell them to go to my father too because we will need help. After 20 minutes I arrive at my father. I quietly access his tree stand. We both stand and listen. In fact, the wild boar is still alive – broken branches can be heard in the forest. Surprisingly, the boar no longer runs further into the forest. I think he’s already weak.
I grab a flashlight. My father takes his rifle and we go to the forest together. Wild boar is not from us. Around 100-150 meters. I’m going first. We are approaching. 50 meters left, then 20. The trees are dense. Visible about 5 meters ahead. We are very close to a boar. I hear him nearby, but I don’t see through the bushes. Suddenly, the boar jumps straight at me. I quickly turn the searchlight to him and see it. Wow that hog was biggest i have ever seen. For a second I think “Oh my God, I have big troubles now.” The boar was 5 meters away from me. Dad reacted quickly and fired a shot. The shot was accurate – the boar fell on the spot. If my father hadn’t hit it, I think it would have ended badly. The boar is really impressive in size.
While we finished the boar, other colleagues came to ues. As a reminder we were 5 people. We tried to move the boar, but we failed. Not just because of the boar’s weight. Dense trees also hindered. Only long ropes and quadricycles were able to pull the wild boar out of the forest. The process took a minimum of a couple of hours.
About the biggest hog. The hog weighed 240 kg. He was shot a few years ago. We found old shot marks. Although the boar was large but the tusks were medium.
