Tassach: Idiot. Don't pull shiat out of your ass when you don't know WTF you are talking about, it just makes you look like the dweeb you are.

I should listen to myself. .375 mag != .375 mag. D'oh. I'll STFU & GBTW now

Interesting and educational bit of self-pwnage. Not knowing much about firearms I wouldn't have thought .357 and .375 would differ in any respect except caliber...

Zaphodius: Food animals are not killed humanely, they are killed efficiently. Go to a slaughter house some time and decide yourself if it is humane or efficient.

This has already been said. Efficient killing is more humane than being shot six times over the course of three hours.

I can't believe they let this go on for pigs, or for anything, for that matter. But pigs are as smart as dogs. I can't believe they let this kid torture a pig for 3+ hours.

Pickensville native, with a .50-caliber pistol on May 3 at the Lost Creek Plantation, LLC, a hunting preserve shooting gallery in Delta. The big boar was hunted inside a large, low-fence enclosure and fired upon 16 times by Stone, who struck the animal nearly a half-dozen times during the three-hour hunt.

I read the articles about this, I actually looked through the monsterpig website, I laughed when I read this one about "Fred" and I even went as far as spending my time reading a bunch of stuff about how obvious a scam this was.

Wait wait.. An 11 year old guns down a huge pig at some kind of game preserve and for some reason everyone (anyone?) cares?

Why is it interesting? I really looked deep into my soul and I think I found the answer... It is so farking stupid.

tassach et al seem dyslexic as well as insulting. Bully for you! A .357 Magnum is not a .375 Magnum. They both are cartridge designations.

The poster I responded to said "...(like a .375 Magnum or hell, even a 30-06)..."

Scroll up and look and then shut up.

I know fark forums isn't the epicenter of good reading comprehension and half of you are stoned but when you wrongly flame somebody you look as dumb as you are.

I would like to publicly retract any and all statements supporting this action and suggest that the parties involved be tied down, naked, rump up and left in the boar pen for a time not less than 30 days.

Pet? Penned? .50cal? You sir have no honor.

wasn't saying that it wasn't, just that slaughterhouses are not known for their humane treatment of their stock... they are designed to be efficient.

As usual, the short sighted do not see the advantage of a harvestable 1000lb protein source. Replication of this source would be advantageous.

Humans are only multiplying and consuming. Somethings gotta feed 'em.

I'm late to the discussion and I haven't RTFT...so if this question's already been asked, I apologize. But I just gotta know:

Is the flavor or tenderness of the animal affected by its ginormousness?

I mean, would giant boar bacon be as tasty as ordinary-sized boar bacon? What about the ham? Also the boar chops. How are the boar chops?

Purple Cow

Typical rednecks (who I had in the past lived with for years) can not afford to hunt like this. These "hunt's" on special farms cost several thousand dollars per trip, your typical redneck makes about a thousand dollars a month, money better spent on piss poor beer and a bass boat.

I have hunted with rednecks, in central Texas that means:
1. Loading 3-8 people in a huge truck.
2. While "liquered up" driving around several miles of backroads totting various handguns rifles and shotguns occasionally firing them at random signs on the side of the road.
3. When you spot a dear everyone sends out a barrage of bullets with whatever they happen to have on them.
4. throw deer into the back of the truck and drive around looking for another one. Rinse, Lather, Repeat till you fill a couple deep freezers later that night.

Occasionally I hear people refer to this as poaching, but no eggs were involved.

/ask me about fishing sometime. boooom!

What a hero!!!

I really hope the father is proud of his son, who was the successfully torturer of this animal for three hours!
And then they, likely very upbeat, dragged the poor animal out of the pen to make the hero-photo....

At least Fred had a good life before these gun-loving (not animal-loving) asshats got hold of him.

I hope they will be part of the 140.000 people who get shoot by accident per year.

Sickening! Absolutely sickening!

A fenced in animal at a pay for hunt isn't necessarily unsporting. Depends on how much room the pig was given for going free, and how much it was used to humans.

Do you hunt these animals with a handgun?
 
2007-06-01 11:11:17 PM
The only time I have gone hunting was vs. Cassowaries with a crossbow when I was 15. No, I didn't get any. Nor did I shoot at any nor did I even see any. There were wild boars I could have shot at too if I had seen any but if I had I probably would have climbed a tree instead. Basically it ended up just being a hike with a crossbow in my hands.

I'm not sure how bacon would taste from one of those humungo pigs because bacon is usually rubbed down with salts and spices then smoked so it could very well taste o.k., but the pigs we use to hunt (yes wild ones and I'll spare the details), well I never thought the roasts, loins etc had that good of a flavor to it. Others will argue otherwise.

orclover

I live in Texas and I legally shoot them with a bow when they are raiding my garden during hunting season as. Then I give cheap beer to my neighbor to help me butcher while I drink better beer (that he hates) if money permits.

Super Combination Hunting and Fishing License entitles to 7 deer and a bit of everything else other than alligators for the grand investment of 64 US dollars a year. They taste better than store meat too because they are eating my organic garden and from my goat feeders. Between the hunting and fishing I eat better than most for a very minimal investment and there's still plenty of deer left to be hit by Suburbans on neighboring roads.

Not all of us are poachers or rednecks, some are just frugal.
 
2007-06-01 11:20:59 PM
I send the pig-farkers an e-mail to the address on their site:

Jamison (or his parents who are filtering his mail),

Hopefully, you will someday get to read this e-mail for yourself and learn how you were so utterly deceived, just to fulfill the irresponsible fantasies of a parent who has decided to try to pass barbaric behavior off as an act of manhood. However, since your parents are studiously filtering your mail, the chances are higher that they do not have the courage to admit their behavior and will delete this mail.

That pig you killed was not a feral hog. In fact, his name was Fred and he grew up on a farm not far from where you killed him. The pig actually spent most of its life being cared for by a family, and that family's children used to play with Fred on a regular basis. I'm sure you remember the day you shot Fred, but when Fred ran from you it was because it was the first time in his life a child hurt him badly instead of played with him. When you got to meet Fred, he was living in a fenced-in gaming preserve built to trap animals within its fences for people who don't know how to really hunt to have a chance to learn the easy way. From start to finish, not much of what happened that day was much like what you were told.

Your dad is going to tell you that he didn't know Fred was once a pet pig before he told you to kill him. Maybe your dad is being honest, but considering all of the attention that this has gotten I don't believe him. You see, your dad allowed your family to get a trip up to New York to brag about it, and instead of being humble he decided to make the trip to brag. That is pride, and pride at killing a pig that was once a friend to a farm family. After your dad was interviewed by a reporter at the end of May, where he was told that the pig was a farm raised pig who was gentle, he still kept calling the pig feral on the website. That is a lie. I know your website says that negative e-mail will get prayers, but right now I think your prayer should be focused on forgiveness for letting sensational false information to spread and being so proud of it. There is nothing honorable or righteous about letting a lie continue about what you've done.

I also strongly encourage you to go learn how to fire a weapon, Jamison. I know your dad thinks you can shoot okay, but you shot 16 times and only hit your target 5 times. Basically, you hit a target that was much larger than you only one time out of every three times you squeezed the trigger. That is a horrible hit-miss ratio, and it means you have a lot of practice before you should be hunting. Missing that many times can be very dangerous while hunting, especially if a missed shot accidentally hits another hunter out there, even if you don't mean it. I don't even own a gun myself and I have learned to fire a pistol with better accuracy than 30%, son. A responsible and honorable hunter always keeps safety in mind, for both himself and other hunters out there.

I am not here to tell you that hunting is bad. However, what you were doing is not hunting. Firing at a domesticated animal inside a fenced plot of land is not hunting. Believe me when I say this, because many of my family are real hunters. They begin from a young age, some even your age, learning to hunt deer with bows and shot. After they bag a prey for which they've trained, I have even enjoyed venison steaks and jerky with my family more than once, which is why I don't consider hunting wrong. Real hunters don't shoot inside of fences, though, Jamison. Shooting an animal as many times as you did spoils the meat, which means much of it would be no good for butcher and instead makes waste. Real hunters don't waste like that, Jamison Real hunters hunt real wild animals, not animals the owner of a piece of land buys so that people can pretend to hunt. What you did was pretending.

You did not have a great accomplishment like your dad is telling you. Instead, you killed a pig named Fred, who was once owned by Rhonda and Phil Blisset, who sold Fred to your dad's friend Mr. Borden. I hope that someday you will learn of this lie that your parents are letting you believe, and that you will be a better person for being able to accept the honest account of what happened instead of being told lies by people who you love. I hope your father's lies do not damage your life too much just to satisfy his desire for attention. I certainly know that he hasn't the courage to place this message in his negative comments section.

Take care of yourself

My grandfather, who was an avid "real" hunter, said to me several time:
Use a proper sized gun for the game and aim carfully. If you do not kill with the first shot, you need to go home and stay home practicing until you are able to do a one bullet kill.

This family is a sad joke! NRA members?
 
2007-06-01 11:28:57 PM
*sigh*... really, sitting in a tree and waiting for a bear to come by so you can point a stick and pull a trigger isn't really all that remarkable an effort to take credit for. An 8 yr old can do it actually.

Come back with a wild boar or a bear, OK then I'm impressed.
 
2007-06-01 11:29:13 PM
if it hgad been actual WILD boar and not a domestic pig the kid wouldn't have had time to reload several times and miss the thing 12 times, if would have PWN3D him if he didn't kill it in first couple of shots and would definately have charged.

That is sick. I'm not against hunting, but this is just pitiful. Here's some brat kid with a tame animal in a pen and he's blasting away with a handgun. He's a sucky shot to boot. I'd seriously love it if there was a chance for some of these "wild" animals to hunt douche-bags like this kid and his dad. Why don't we turn a lion loose in their home and see how it goes?
 
2007-06-01 11:50:27 PM
If it weren't enclosed, the pig would've escaped-- that underbrush, is wicked thick. A thousand pounds plus, bleeding and hurt, feral or half-tame, is a dangerous thing.

So it took the kid six hours-- at least he finished it off.

I only wrote the letter because he's not my neighbor. Otherwise, I'd just as kindly and sensitively kick the muthafarking dad in the crotch for every shot his fat-fark son missed.
 
2007-06-01 11:59:16 PM
I was raised in the south and hunting with my grandfather was one of the things I most enjoyed growing up. It was a great bonding experience between me and that grouchy old man.

We had a few important rules though. First, you killed the animal on your first shot. To do otherwise was shameful. Second, we only killed what we were going to eat. Third, we never killed an animal that had young.

I know where my meat comes from and I have no problem with hunting. This wasn't hunting. So called "canned hunts" are nothing more than a stain on real hunting and should be outlawed.

I gave up pork a month ago. A little weird at first - breakfast foods and Pepporoni was missed at first. But hey, anyone here ever prepared pork ribs before? As in butchering up uncooked racks? That smell got to me last month and I have excluded it from my diet ever since.

No more piggies.

Played with a baby Vietnamese Potbelly piglet once. Cute as pie, but not for dinner mind you.

The purpose of this hunt was to give Jamison the opportunity to challenge himself and with this challenge the opportunity to overcome fear and accomplish something that would not be easily done.

Just kidding! No way would he succeed if it were a real hunt. So I gave him the equivalent of a bike with training wheels.

As he is becoming a young man, I wanted to see if the stuff I had been given him over the years would be the right stuff and if he had enough of it to rise to this and other challenges that life would surly have in store.

I also want to snuff out any lingering whiffs of homosexuality.

I have disciplined my children over the years quiet regularly and many times have heard them say that their friends did not receive the same punishment. My response has always been "I am not trying to raise another child I am trying to raise a Champion". I guess I wanted to see if I was on the right track.

You aren't.

Congratulations, Dad. You've taught Jamison that he can succeed only under carefully controlled circumstances. And then you've taught him to talk up his meager accomplishments. I see a nice job in middle management for Jamison.
