King Kong Hog from Russia Makes Hogzilla Look Like a Baby

If this hog from Russia is real, then it’s time to believe in monsters. 

Unearthed pictures of a wild boar, which we are affectionately calling King Kong Hog, spread over the Internet like wildfire a few years ago. If these pictures and story are real, then this hog from Russia is one of the largest wild boars ever shot on the planet.

Peter Maximov, a pig hunter from Chelyabinsk, Russia was hunting out of a tower near a favorite hog spot in the the Ussuriland, when a boar of epic proportions stepped out in front of him.

One shot later, Maximov reported that the hog, seemingly unfazed, ran off into the forest. After realizing how big the boar was that he just shot, Maximov was too scared to track it by himself so he called a local forest ranger to help.

Some time later, both men were able to find a blood trail and eventually track the boar to a place where it was bedded down, but still alive. Maximov then fired again, which enraged the hog and sent it into a full charge at both men. Quickly, a third shot was fired that finally brought down King Kong Hog.

Both men together couldn’t move the pig so they tied it to Maximov’s truck and drove it into the nearby village of Shokurov. From there, it was weighed out to an incredible 1,179 pounds! However, that’s not all. The shoulder height measured out to five and half feet of pure giant hog.

They’ve wreaked havoc on North American landscapes, but they’ve always been a part of Asian and European outdoors. As an invasive species, wild hogs can be blamed for a number of issues that have popped up in recent years.

Thanks to their fine swine genetics, they can reproduce at lightning fast speeds and area a real threat to wildlife and habitat in North America, especially the southern regions. The first time a wild boar attacks a small dog or ruins a field of crops in your neck of the woods, it becomes clear what these things can do.

States have legalized plenty of hunting methods around the U.S., including the use of dogs, night hunting, and especially trapping. Processors have even started to pay out for trapped wild hogs, and depending on the price of pork, a trapper can make a decent chunk of change.

But in reality, we haven’t seen anything like this King Kong Hog in the press before. Ever.

For comparison, Hogzilla, the giant pig from Georgia that made rounds back in 2004, weighed in at only 794 pounds and had a shoulder height of three feet, three inches. It was huge for the United States, but parts of Europe and Asia have boars even bigger.

As you can see, this Russian hog is huge.

As we all know, the problem with the Internet is that photos can be photoshopped. Is this photo and story real? We can’t 100 percent say for sure. Considering it came from Russia, with little other evidence than these photos, we just don’t know.

This is where you come in. Have you ever heard anything about this? Help us find out if this is in fact a real pig!

However, one thing to keep in mind, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, that might be all we have.

This is What it's Like to Decapitate a Gobbler with The Judge Revolver

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/turkey-reaping-with-the-judge/

Facebook.com
the judge revolver

This close encounter with The Judge revolver gives turkey hunting a new look.

Fan hunting for turkeys, also known as reaping, has gained popularity in the past half decade. However, not many hunters choose the Judge revolver as their shotgun of choice.

This close encounter for Culpepper will give most hunters an adrenaline rush. Can you guess how many yards this shot is taken at?

I’ve personally never shot the Judge before, but from what I understand, it’s a revolver-turned-shotgun, typically loaded with a .410 cartridge. Because the .410 is a smaller shotgun shell size one would have to get closer than if they were hunting with a .12 or .20 gauge.

It apparently is possible to take out a turkey with a .410 if the shot is just right.

WARNING: Turkey reaping, while fun, is only recommended on private land where it is certain there are no other hunters. I hope it’s obvious after this video why that is the case. When you’re hiding behind a real turkey fan, hunters could get confused.

Cooking: Wild Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Posted from: https://www.bowhunting.net/2019/05/cooking-wild-turkey-breakfast-sausage/

By MeatEater

Wild Turkey Apple Sausage Recipe

Ingrediants: 2 pounds skinless, boneless turkey legs (or a mix of legs and breast), cut into 1½-inch cubes 14 ounces thick-sliced bacon, cut into large pieces 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more as needed 1 large onion, diced 2 medium sweet and tart apples, such as Honeycrisp, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch cubes 2 to 2½ tablespoons packed brown sugar, or to taste 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves 2 tablespoons kosher salt 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg Zest of 1 lemon

Freeze the turkey meat and bacon on a baking sheet for 30 to 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until soft, about 8 minutes. Stir in the apples and continue to cook until soft, 6 to 8 minutes.

Transfer to a large plate, spread in a thin layer, and let cool in the refrigerator.

Grind the turkey and bacon into a large bowl set over a large bowl of ice. Add the cooled onions and apples, the sugar, thyme, salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon zest. Mix well with your hands.

Pinch off a small bit of the sausage mixture and cook in a little oil in a skillet to test for seasoning. Adjust seasonings as necessary.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Form patties with a slightly wet hand. I like to make them 3 inches in diameter because they’re easy to throw on the grill or in a pan, but you can make them any size you want.

Cooking: Preheat a cast-iron pan over medium heat and put a little oil in the pan. Working in batches, sear the sausage patties until browned on both sides and cooked throughout, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Note: To freeze, stuff sausage into poly meat bags in ½-pound or 1-pound quantities, depending on how many people you typically serve. You can find all the special equipment used for this recipe at Weston Cooking Game: Wild Turkey Apple Sausage brought to you by Weston.
