A North Carolina hunter says he'll feed his family for a year after he bagged a 500-pound wild hog in the woods of eastern North Carolina.
Jett Webb shot the 8-foot-long animal near the Indian Woods on land leased by the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club, WNCT.com reported.
"It was very surreal," Webb told the station. "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.'"
The animal had been seen on trail cameras years but baffled hunters.
"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."
Webb said he’s going to use the hog to provide food for his family.
"We’re not going to waste anything,” Webb said
