Conetoe Man Bags 500+ Pound Bertie County Hog

 

500 lb Wild Hog

 

” A hunter in Bertie County shoots and kills a 500-pound wild hog.

The massive animal didn’t stand a chance against veteran hunter Jett Webb’s .308 caliber rifle. 

” It was very surreal,” recalls Webb. “It was a shock. It was very humbling to say the least, when you walk up on a beast that big and you say, ‘Oh my gosh. I had no idea that there could be something that big running around the woods of Eastern North Carolina.’”

 

 

 

” Last month Webb spotted the beast roaming near the Indian Woods on land leased by the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club. It was the same one other hunters had been vying for since capturing it on trail cameras years ago. 

” The Mohawk down the back,” Webb describes, “the tusks really lean, the muscular big front end. This is far from a domesticated docile pig that we’re used to.”

  Mike Mansell, president of the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club, agrees this size hog game is rare. 

“ It takes your breath away for a second to realize how big this hog is,” he says. “It took up the entire bed of the pick-up truck.” “
