Can you believe this thing was running around in the woods in Alabama?

That's eleven year old Jameson Stone (top) and the wild hog he killed in 'Bama over the weekend.  It weighs 1051 pounds and is over nine feet long.

It feels really good," Jamison said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "It's a good accomplishment. I probably won't ever kill anything else that big."

Well, not unless he takes out Dennis Kucinich's wife.  But in the meantime, what's going to happen to that hog?

The hog's head is being mounted by Jerry Cunningham of Jerry's Taxidermy. Cunningham said the animal measured 54 inches around the head, 74 inches around the shoulders and 11 inches from the eyes to the end of its snout.

"It's huge," he said. "It's just the biggest thing I've ever seen."

Mike Stone is having sausage made from the rest of the animal. "We'll probably get 500 to 700 pounds," he said.

Mmmmmm [smacks lips].  Tasty sausage.

I can't believe something this large was running around in the woods without anyone seeing it. It must have taken years (maybe 10 - 15; a pure layman's guess) for this thing to get to 1,000 lbs. The adventurer in me is excited by things like this because it makes me realize there are things man has not explored/conquered.

I hope you had a great weekend with the family, and everyone is doing well.
