For this, you do need a .50 revolver
Boy bags a half-ton wild hog. Personally, I'd be more comfortable with a .50 BMG...
Agreed. The account is that he shot the big pig a half dozen times and still had to chase it down for the coup de'grace.

I'm conflicted on this story.
I was born in Alabama, but raised in Georgia. Who do I cheer on for bagging the biggest hog?

Mr. Salk said, "I was born in Alabama, but raised in Georgia. Who do I cheer on for bagging the biggest hog?"
The woman who lives with Rosie O'Donnell.

the heck with firearms, i'm not going anywhere near that beast unless i'm riding an APV. and i'm just plain not shooting it, period; it can die of old age, if it gets any place i do not want it, i'll use a bulldozer to move it elsewhere.
an armored bulldozer. remotely controlled, for preference.

Sounds like the job the m1a1 Abrams was built for: fighting giant ants and hogs. ;)

You should go to the kid's website and read the negative comments that the anti-hunting, pro-tolerance crowd has left.

Letalis: I read some of that vitriol, which saysuncle had linked, then posted this:
Take a look in the mirror at the inside of your mouth. Those pointy teeth at the sides on top and bottom are known as "canines" and they're for tearing meat.
We are omnivores. Eating meat is part of being human, and killing is part of eating meat. Having someone else do all your killing for you is a bit of a copout. The honest meat eater will kill for him/her self once in a while and not apologize for it.
If you choose not to have proper nutrition and eat only vegetables (better hope there are no bacteria on them, 'cause you'll be killing the poor little defenseless innocents) that's just fine-- Leave the rest of us more healthy, strong, and well-adjusted people alone.
You don't see us trying to nag, brow-beat or intimidate you into eating meat, do you? Do as you like and leave me to do as I like. Then we can get along, but that's not what you want, is it? You want power over other people.
Oh, and if you want to help "save" a species, get it put on the menu. That way, people all over will be raising them for sale. (you don't see the chicken or the pheasant on the endangered species list, do you, even though we eat billions of them annually?)
On a broader note: Observe how the "animal rights" types are trying to get animals elevated ever closer to the status of humans, which is just another way of saying;
They are demoting humans (in their minds at least) ever closer to the status of animals, which is in fact the whole focus and purpose of the Left.
