Joe Clowers of Union Grove says, “We’ve been seeing what we knew was a large hog on the game camera but we had never seen him in person.”

Last weekend, Clowers spent an evening at a deer stand on his property and says, “At about 1 a.m. this guy walks in and it was that moment of I can’t believe I’m actually seeing this pig.”

How did Joe take down the massive hunk-of-a-hog?

Clowers said, “You’ve always heard you can’t kill a large wild hog with an AR-15…and I did.”

Joe said, “I’m still somewhat shocked. I never dreamed that people cared that much about a big pig”–“I called him the Bush Beast.  My 12-year-old daughter called him Leroy.”


Joe sent photos of the hog to his friend, Gregg County Game Warden Todd Long.

Since then, the hog was processed to feed homeless animals.

Imagine a 417 lb. hog… coming your way!? Whew!

Pork ribs anyone?
