Six Mile hog taken by Seneca hunter estimated at 460 pounds
Huge boar weighed 360 pounds after field dressing
A friend from up there sent me this.
Six Mile, South Carolina is in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and only about 60 miles from where the first German wild swine were stocked in a fenced hunting preserve in the late 1800s. They escaped, and much of the stock around the mountains is pretty pure.
This one obvious is part German and part domestic. There is a lot of farming around Seneca, apple orchards, rich bottom land, rivers, some of them impounded in the 1970s into Lake Keowee and Toxaway, pushing wild game out, and blocking travel from the mountains. The area up above Toxaway, on the North Carolina border is restricted access - no motorized vehicles. So a 10 mine canoe trip or hike up and down 2,500 feet four times keeps the place pretty isolated, especially in the winter.
