I have been getting this beast on film for a while now.  We estimate him over 350 lbs. Excuse the pictures, they were taken with my phone of a picture on my computer.

I cannot believe it, the morning after I posted the pictures of Hogzilla Jr., I spot him in my waterway rooting.  I grab my 7mm Mag. and hightail through the beans for 300 yards to a tree at the beginning of the waterway.  I still can't believe he is out and not bedded down as the sun starts to crest the horizon.  He was facing away and I patiently waited for him to give me any kind of angle.  He finally quarters away and I squeeze the trigger.  He drops in his tracks then starts flopping away.  The shot was about 175 yards.  I shot through his front "forearm" and into his neck (somewhat under his chin cause his head was down).  When I got to him I didn't think it was him because both cutters (top and bottom) on one side were broken.  When we rolled him over we realized it was Hogzilla Jr.  If you look at the pictures in my initial post you can see his cutters on both sides.  I also over estimated his weight.  In actuality he was "only" 294 lbs. not 350 lbs as I first thought.  Please excuse my attire, when you see hogs you just go with what you have on cause they will not stay in one place for long...I've actually chased them in underwear and flip-flops before.

Good shooting!  Yup, you gotta play the cards you were dealt.
