Interesting that the hunter and tree behind him are in focus, but the behemoth hog is not.

It is a sad comment that it was killed for little if any reason other than "sport". If the animals were as well-armed as "the hunters", it would be a better story.

To bad more kids are not trained to hunt and use guns the proper way. Seems folks that know how to use guns, and are raised with guns don't do CRIMES...
congrats. to this kid...

Sorry, but this is not cool, nor is it anyting for this young man to be pround of. What HORRIBLE values to teach a young boy! How is it the least bit "heroic" or "sporting" to teach your children to kill an innocent, sentient animal with a gun, for no good reason. This boy is another violent, ignorant, uneducated bully in the making -- what a pity. His parents should be ashamed of themselves. I agree with you, specialk389.

Good thing they are making sausage out of him. Anything else would probably be too tough.

I have no problem with hunting, but these "preserves" with GUIDES simply provide various animals very available to catch a bullet for the paying member's. There is no real "hunt" involved. Just like a fishing boat; they WILL take you to your catch, and make sure you "bag" what you are looking for. I speak from experience; been there - done that.

I gotta add though that this was a big 'ole boar, which makes me think that it was indeed set up for this kid to "bag" him - GREAT publicity for the "preserve" owner's. IMHO.

Good going, Jamison !

This is not a bully in the making, just a good shot.

And, by the way, the animal is not being wasted or killed just for sport if it yields 500 - 700 lbs of sausage.

Actually seamoron, I'm ashamed of you. The hog will not be wasted, it will be consumed. If it were shot and left to rot you would have something to crow about.
I suppose you would prefer the kid wrestle a 1000lb.+ hog? I'd say the kid was at a disadvantage even with the handgun. These hogs are mean and a milk-toast like you would have pooped your pants at the sight of such a beast and probably ran away and left your kids for hog food...that's the values you and your ilk are all about...pathetic.

If you feel sorry for those wild hogs why don't you go up to one of them and give them a great big hug. Say hi for me.

IT IS A SHAME THAT HE DID NOT USE ENOUGH GUN TO KILL IT WITH ONE SHOT. IT HAD TO SUFFER FOR SO LONG SHOT WITH AN INADEQUATE FIREARM SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE DYING. I AM HAPPY FOR THE YOUNG BOY OTHERWISE.

I'm impressed this 11 year old kid could get off three shots with a 50 caliber pistol.

No kidding.1050 lb wild boar with 5" tusks.You'd have to be uneducated to consider this an innocent animal.Sausage bacon and ham are the best use for him.

I think believe that everyone else should just keep their mouths shut. It’s shameful that people are putting him down for killing a wild animal. How is he a bully in the making for hunting? If that was true then almost all of our grandparents great grandparents and so on were bullies to. It’s the food chain the only reason we aren’t on the lower part of it is because we are able to adapt and improve our technology if not we would be the hunted and not the hunted. If the animals had guns to then they would have the advantage. Think about it a 1051 pound wild boar vs. a 11-year-old boy . Lets think people who has the advantage the wild boar of course he has the speed and the weight advantage along with the brute force all us humans have is our technology. all im trying to say is that if you don't like it that he killed a wild animal then you should go out and pet a cougar or a black bear

I agree that the young man is to be congratulated. Hunting, even on a preserve, is not easy and hitting anything with a handgun is hard. I do agree that pure sport hunting is bad as is pure sport fishing.
BTW, I fish all the time, both keep and catch and release and appreciate good sportsmen. Also, I hope to go deer hunting, for the first time, this fall. I am 51 years old.

This was a sadistic, weak excuse for a hunt. I have nothing against responsible hunting, and agree that responsible "thinning of the herd" can save overpopulations (from winter starvation, for example). Here in Ohio, the deer population explodes every year. And every year, properly trained hunters take about 200,000 deer. And guess what? It's a good thing for both the hunters and the overall deer population. But what transpired here was a hunting travesty. A kid, accompanied by fully armed adults who do nothing, goes on a three-hour shooting spree against a terrified animal. The three heavily armed adults could have ended the animal's suffering immediately. But noooo, these ignorant yahoos had to egg the kid on so he could slowly finish the job with inferior marksmanship. This had the effect of extending the animal's terror and misery for hours. And because of the atrocious non-action of the accompanying, supposedly responsible, adults, this kid now believes that what he did was a GOOD thing. This so-called "hunt" was an abomination that no truly responsible hunter would applaud. What happened to "one shot, one kill"? Slapping this miniature redneck-in-training on the back and saying "well done, boy" is the mark of a gun-totin' backwoods hick. People who applaud this barbaric display of animal cruelty are perpetuating the stereotype of Southerners being slow-witted, gun-toting inbreds. I can practically hear "Dueling Banjoes" playing in the background. Learn to hunt responsibly, you "Billy Beer" swilling morons. And quit teaching your children that being cruel to animals in the name of "sport" is OK.
