CONETOE, NC - A hunter in Bertie County shoots and kills a 500-pound wild hog.

The massive animal didn't stand a chance against veteran hunter Jett Webb's .308 caliber rifle.

"It was very surreal,” recalls Webb. “It was a shock. It was very humbling to say the least, when you walk up on a beast that big and you say, 'Oh my gosh. I had no idea that there could be something that big running around the woods of Eastern North Carolina.’"

Last month Webb spotted the beast roaming near the Indian Woods on land leased by the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club. It was the same one other hunters had been vying for since capturing it on trail cameras years ago.
