    North Carolina hunter bags a 500-pound wild board.

    It's not addressed in this story, but the subject of the "pig bomb" kind of fascinates me. These things are basically giant furry cockroaches -- hard as hell to kill, and they breed faster than they can be killed. Some states have given the green light to shoot on sight and it barely puts a dent in their population. They're also smart enough to learn how to avoid and escape traps.
    These things are basically walking, breathing tanks with the survival instincts of Rambo.

    Was that board wilder than this board?

    The camera adds 20 pounds, of course.

    You know on the Poin threads it's pics or GTFO. This one falls under the category pics AND GTFO.

    Another problem with feral hogs is they migrate to the best available food and water sources depending on the season. Most effective way to control them is with extensive, unrelenting trapping and then a bullet to the head.
