Alabama man shoots 820 pound feral hog!

After his retirement in 1977, my grandfather  began to hunt and trap as a hobby.  Before retirement, he was an avid coon hunter.  He lived for cold nights tracking a coon along the creek banks of central Virginia with his trusty hounds.  Last October, that same grandfather turned 103 years old.  In November, he climbed his 20′ treestand and took a huge 8 point whitetail buck with his CVA muzzleloader.  As the oldest active hunter in the US, Papa loves to hunt even though he has slowed down some.  For Christmas, my Dad gave Papa a hog hunt.  Though the weather wasn’t very cooperative, Papa made the trip and really enjoyed it.  I think the guides enjoyed his company more and even offered to let him stay a couple more days or come back at a later date.  Papa declined but still talks about the trip.

For one Alabama man he had a hog encounter he couldn’t believe.  He had a huge hog in his front yard being corned by his small house dog!  Wade Seago knew what he had to do and didn’t hesitate to take care of business with the feral hog.  It was only after the fact that he learned how big this hog was.  I’m sorry my Papa didn’t get a hog on his trip but it would have been cool if he had.  Especially one of this size!

Trending: It’s like an underwater trail cam for anglers….

“Samson resident Wade Seago knew something was up outside of his home last week when the family’s pet schnauzer, Cruiser, started barking constantly. The Seagos live on 100 acres in the rural south Alabama town. The property and surrounding area is teeming with wildlife so it’s not unusual for their dog to bark at deer, raccoons or other wild visitors.”

“But this was different. As he was about to get up and check on his dog, his daughter began screaming.”
