Oklahoma Crossbow Hunter Brings Down 760lb. Hog While Deer Hunting

By Chad Love

--Chad Love

A quiet morning in his tree stand turned into a Hogzilla death match for one Oklahoma bowhunter who needed every arrow he had to bring down a monster 800-pound hog.

From this story on kfor.com:

A Rush Springs man had quite a fright after he was confronted by a nearly 800-pound wild hog. It happened Monday morning when he was hunting on property west of Rush Springs.

"We'd seen his tracks, but we'd never seen him," Winston Brown said. "I was sitting up in my tree stand waiting on the sun to come up." And that's when he saw it. "It looked like a cow coming from the other end," he said "It came up and the deer ran off."

They knew what was coming, a 760-pound wild hog. Brown fired his crossbow. "The first arrow struck the shoulder plate," he said. "He kind of grunted real loud and started popping his teeth. He turned and faced me. I think if I had been on the ground and he could have seen me, it would have probably been ugly." Brown shot again.

The hog laid down, but it wasn't over. Winston got down from his tree stand but broke a branch as he made his way to the hog, scaring the hog back up and putting Brown's life in danger. He was down to his last arrow. "When he came around that tree I shot him through both lungs, and I was headed for

He's real lucky that he wasn't on the ground even small hogs can do some major damage. But his is a monster great job. That’s one less to worry about.

More like Hamp. Glad the guy had enough sense to realize this pig probably wasn't born wild. This was only about 20 minutes from where I grew up.

Holy Moly, if I was in the woods and saw that thing I think I might mistake it for a cow!

Too bad old Marlin Perkins is gone. He could have captured this porker and relocated him to Iran. A few of these guys there, and the place would soon be empty.

Good kill, that's the reason a 44 mag pistol or a 350 rem. mag is with me at all times possible when I'm hunting in pig country.

That is one heck of a pig. No wonder it sucked up those crossbow bolts.

As far as "dangerous" pigs... folks gotta quit listening to old wives' tales and watching Discovery channel. You're about as likely to get mauled by a whitetail as you are by a pig. Not that I want to get caught up on either one of them in a pinch, but hogs simply aren't the ferocious beasts the myths and stories would have us believe.

True Story,
My parents have a friend who is now a widow because her husband got between a sow and her piglets. It wasn't a wild pig either. Those critters are no joke
