How would you like to run into this animal in the Oklahoma woods?
This is why hog hunting in Oklahoma is becoming so popular. The size of the beasts that are roaming around Oklahoma.
Landon Wood, a firefighter in Sulphur, killed this free-ranging pig last month at Mill Creek on an 8,500 acre ranch called the Pennington Creek Hunting Club.
The pig, shot at dusk, weighed 558 pounds and had 2½-inch cutters and measured almost 17 inches across the shoulders.
A .308 rifle cartridge only penetrated the pig halfway at a shot from 80 yards, said Brad Clay, a youth minister at the First Baptist Church in Sulphur, who was filming the hunt for an upcoming DVD.
Clay, Wood and Clayton Edgar, the childrens’ minister at the church, formed a Christian-based ministry called Final Descent Outdoors. They speak at wild game feasts held at churches and organize mens’ spiritual retreats.
They are combining their two passions, hunting and their faith, into one. Clay said the hunting DVD they are making will be very gospel-based.
“We feel like lot of (hunters) are good ole’ boys but don’t know the Lord and we are trying to reach out to them and make a connection,” he said.
