'Gargantuan' wild hog weighing nearly 800 pounds caught in Texas

A ginormous hog that tipped the scale at 790 pounds is living carefree, and getting fed and watered down in his corral – for now.

The hog was bagged after what could be a catch of a lifetime for Blaine Garcia and Wyatt Walton on a ranch Jan. 16 in De Leon, a town about 35 minutes west of Stephenville and 95 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

That Friday was an ordinary day of hunting on land owned by Comanche County Commissioner Jimmy Dale Johnson, until Garcia found the signs of a large hog in the area.

No freaking kidding Anon. I've been close to some that were half his size at night in the woods and even those smaller ones make the hair stand up on your neck. Especially, when you can smell them they are so close.
