CONETOE, NC -

A hunter from the town of Conetoe has bagged a massive wild boar that tipped the scales, weighing in at over 500 pounds.

It happened February 28 in the Indian Woods area of Bertie County, which is located in the northeast part of the state, bordering Virginia.

The North Carolina Sportsman reports that the massive wild board bottomed out a set of scales certified to 500 pounds, which is used ordinarily to weigh tobacco bales.

"He pegged the maximum weight capacity of the certified scales with his head and shoulders still on the skinning shed floor," Michael Mansell, president of the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club told the website. "It was a true beast!"

The hog had eluded hunters of the club for about six to eight years.  

"We have pictures of him going back to 2011. He was a hard one to get on the ground for he moved around a great deal," Mansell said. "These hogs are smart; we stay scent free, watch the wind and hunt from elevated stands."

According to the report, Jett Webb had been baiting the hog for a month. He killed it with a .308 around 10:30 p.m.

Mansell says the hogs of his club's property have characteristics similar to the Eurasian strain of hogs with long snouts, large tusks, tufts on the end of their tails, a ridgeback hair line and a real bad attitude.
