Hunter bags massive wild hog with AR rifle

Jett Webb, of Conetoe, N.C., shot an killed a massive wild boar with an AR rifle chambered for the .308 Winchester round. The beast maxed out a scale that was certified up to 500 pounds, North Carolina Sportsman magazine reports.

Webb stalked and baited the hog for over a month and finally bagged it Feb. 28 in Bertie County, N.C.

The boar had frustrated local hunters for years, Michael Mansell, president of the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club, told the sports magazine.

The White Oak Ranch Hunting Club told WRAL Raleigh Durham Fayetteville, “the wild boar population is exploding in that part of North Carolina, and this helps control the herd.”

Webb told WRAL that he plans to fill his fridge with the sausage he plans to make from the boar meat. Watch video here.
