an 11 year old girl named Taelor Davis is a big time hunting big shot here..she shot 3 feral hogs and two Javelina hogs.The largest feral hog weighed about 300 lbs. and was shot at 150 yards. She used a .243 caliber ruger rifle with a simmons 3x9 scope..her parents had the largest hog head mounted and it hangs now on the wall among their wildlife trophies..there is a picture of her grinning from ear to ear all decked out in camy's next to one of the Javelina's she shot...i for once am going to pass on commenting on this...
