    Couple of issues here- seems like there is a very real risk of wounding without killing a potentially dangerous animal.
    First Issue – as wounded hogs can be quite dangerous I would never endorse this, I have always been taught and firmly believe that taking the chance of having an angry, wounded, dangerous animal loose is putting other humans and livestock at risk. I hog hunt with 425 gr flat nosed 45-70 and make sure they go down and stay down.
    Second issue – Tannerite is currently arguing that NBC news libeled them by characterizing their product as a legal bomb, somehow I think this video is likely to be shown in court by NBC.

    I would’ve like to have seen the aftermath too. Is tannerite the exploding target stuff or am I confusing it with another type explosive? I’m looking forward to the kittens in the bear trap and puppies in the blender videos. I like good horror videos. It never ceases to amaze me what a psycho without a gun can think up. Very ingenious. I’m looking forward to teaching my boy to hunt hogs so he can bring home the meat. To all who told me just how big the problem really was, thank you, but you could’ve stopped mean, ugly, and nasty. That was enough for me.

    Reality. It’s something some americans just can’t grasp. These hogs need to be in the cities, like central park, to wake people up to reality. People who are always talking their trash and judgement, probably have never had to live with the damage these hogs are responsible for. Reality is often not pretty, but sometimes you just have to put on your big boy and big girl panties and deal with it.

  • Larry November 11, 2014, 8:47 pm

    Dude- the worst thing was not filming the aftermath. Very cool as far as it went.

  • Russ November 11, 2014, 5:00 pm

    That was funny as hell.
    It was also a great idea.
    S.H. BLANNELBERRY warned all you pussys.
    You should have closed your eyes.
    It’s not hunting, It’s killing the biggest and most dangerous pests you’ve ever seen.
    Educate yourselves.
    You have no idea what kind of damage and danger feral hogs inflict on us here in California and the rest of our country.
    I’m going to show this to my friends who own hundreds of acres of prime land that have a license to eradicate feral hogs.
    Hogs that have destroyed crops, livestock and threaten to kill children in the private lake.

    I wonder if all these negative poster’s think drilling into a baby’s skull to abort it, is humane? I doubt any of them are protesting out in front of the abortion clinics in their big cities. this video should be called multi-tasking. ! as there isn’t enough hours in the day to take them out one at a time. Just how would you idiots get rid of these hogs when they are populating faster than they can be shot? are any of you dedicating several hours a day, everyday to help? until you see the damage, and take it upon yourself to help. just shut the hell up. sitting at home in mommies basement complaining about it on your computer does not help. I don’t have land or crops being torn up and destroyed by these hogs, but have seen the damage they cause, Since I am outdoors in wilderness areas so often, I took it upon myself to help when I can and now carry a weapon when i go and never pass up on an opportunity to knock one down.
    I am just one person and can’t make a big difference, but it’s more than any of you that only sit in front of the computer, bitching and complaining about it. so either grab a gun and help or shut up. I’m sure you can find better things to do with all that time you waste in front of your pc bitching about things you have absolutely no experience with, or knowledge of.
    “Brings new meaning to when pigs fly” is the best comment I’ve seen and still laughing at that one, thanks kurmudgeon!

  • Pete Curtis November 11, 2014, 12:47 am

    This video is despicable. I’m sick of hearing the same old story about eradicating the evil wild pig. This is a lame excuse just so these people can be cruel and inhumane. Those animals didn’t ask to be there. I’m all the hunting them humanely. And don’t bother responding because I don’t give a rats ass what y’all demented, the hills have eyes mf’ers have to say.

    • Ed November 13, 2014, 10:19 am

      Replying anyway. You have no ability for logic. Humane is a more instant kill. But you think humane is what, doing it the old fashioned way? I hardly believe you are a hunter. People often claim they are, so their comments come off with more validity to others.

      • Russ November 13, 2014, 1:12 pm

        I’m responding too.
        Maybe Pete is “P” or just another anti-gun guy who has no clue in the world about hogs.
        Hey Pete, I’m from the city.
        I’m also a trained veterinarian and have been into animals my whole life.
        I don’t hunt, because I like chicken pork & beef, and it’s right down the street in coolers.
        My brother hunts pig and his friends own huge plots of land here in the State Of California
        The State Game Wardens have given them a permit to kill off these pests, or what they label “Dangerous and destructive invasive species” We’re talking California here, do you get that?
        It’s going to be hard to educate you on this problem because it’s so vast and intense there’s not enough room here to print it all
        I’ll just tell you this; No matter how hard humans try to eradicate this pest, they can only decrease the impact and not stop it.
        They kill and destroy all things from sea turtles, through the crops, to people.
        You say you hunt? If you come here you better have lots of buddies dogs and guns, because you can try to shoot them as fast as you can and some will run away and others will run at you, so good luck hunting.
        Here’s one BIG ASS problem you better come to realize ; They spread E-coli in the waterways all over the USA and it gets into the crops and meat you eat and the water you drink.
        So now go out and give the nearest pig a big hug for me, OK?
        You girls really need to Google some education I guess.
        Do that now please.

  • Chuck November 10, 2014, 10:43 pm

    Wonder how much tannerite they used to get that size blast……..anyone see an amount listed

  • rick November 10, 2014, 10:41 pm

    Hey I got a couple of videos I’m going to post.
    It’s my video of “kittens in a bear trap”. you guys will love it!!! After that I will follow it up with “Puppies in the blender”
    You guys will just shit yourselves laughing. I showed them God dammed puppies, I did!!

    • Russ November 13, 2014, 12:25 pm

      Anti-gun guy detected !!
      Please send an educator and a psychiatrist.

  • P November 10, 2014, 6:02 pm

    Gotta love hiding behind the “hogs are pests and killing them is legal” angle to justify this video. No one is even arguing that issue. This is about the idiotic, irresponsible, and inhumane nature of using tannerite (or anything) to blow them up like that. If you want to kill them, do it like a responsible adult, not like a budding sociopathic teenager getting a sick thrill out of it.

    • JohnyV November 10, 2014, 8:07 pm

      Inhumane??? They died instantly, unlike the thousands that are left to die due to poison or shot in a bad spot and suffer for hours. Your “libtard” is showing “P”.
      Perfect example of a two-faced liberal: Liberals will eat steak behind close doors, then as your mouth is stuffed full of meat, you will denounce the people who must kill the animal and others that eat meat, as you wash it down with a $30 imported beer.
      Naive ignorant hypocrites the lot of you!

      • Russ November 13, 2014, 12:20 pm

        Go grab some of those bacon bits to top off your baked potato “P”

  • sedlock November 10, 2014, 5:37 pm

    Pest control ,,libtards shut up !!!!

  • DBC November 10, 2014, 3:38 pm

    Ignorant and stupid!
    If you think asshole shit like this doesn’t give the antigun crowd more ammo, you can add retarded to stupid and ignorant!
    I have no problem with killing hogs, just the morons not understanding good versus bad PR and public perception!

    • You poor fake freedom lover (DBC) November 10, 2014, 6:09 pm

      DBC your nothing more than another pretend freedom/gun lover. You and your pathetic lot are too afraid to stand up for what you believe in and rather sit in the dark corner doing everything in your power to stay quiet and hopefully UN-noticed by the demented libtards who may shine their twisted bright light of Political Correctness at your gun passions/likes. Every time any REAL American with BALLS apologetically does something which brings attention (good or bad) to firearms or our American gun culture, YOU ball-less eunuchs start screaming the same BS or even go so far as to sell-out by siding with the liberals hoping that they don’t point a dirty finger at you instead of standing together as one solid unapologetic front!
      Your spineless rants of: ” “oh my goodness , your going to make them take all our guns away now for certain this time””… is becoming old and frankly disgusting. You part time pretend “”2nd amendment loving Americans”” do NOTHING to fight for our firearms, just like you tried to sell us out with the so called “assault weapons” assuming the libtards wouldn’t come after your bolt action and shotguns! As if a liberals will ever stop with one type of firearm because they will not be happy until ALL guns are taken away from the American public, wake the hell up!
      You may not like this but the fact remains that it is legal, You may not own or even enjoy a particular type of firearm but that makes it even more important that you side with your other gun enthusiasts that do!! If we all stood together proud and strong with passion for EVERYTHING involved with our American gun culture and never give up another inch on ANY gun issue, the twisted liberal socialists wouldn’t have a prayer against us.

    • JohnyV November 10, 2014, 7:46 pm

      I could give a rat”s ass if the antigun POS like it or don’t like this video!! You damn cowards who are too frightened to tell them to take a flying fck are the true assholes, not these real men having fun while at the same time getting rid of PESTS! You political correct part-time gun owners, who are too afraid to fight and assert your rights, are the real problem in the US…. now go drop to your knees and suck-up to the low life liberals! You are one sorry excuse for an American DBC.

  • Alan Robinson November 10, 2014, 2:46 pm

    All the critics should be made to live with or near these damn things before making their statements.
    Better yet, haul your manly butts out there and give em a kick in the slats, see what that gets you.
    Feral Pigs are dangerous, mean and don’t belong in the wild environment, they WILL destroy other wildlife, and the environment itself.
    I get this stuff all the time when I shoot Prairie Dogs, Libs don’t get what the Plague can do to their pets.
    As for the nonsense of “humane” killing, grow up! There’s nothing humane about killing, it’s the natural order of things.
    We are part of nature, and whereas we are the superior species, survival isn’t about being humane.
    Killing is killing, accept and deal with it. Or go vegan.

  • Kurmudgeon November 10, 2014, 1:23 pm

    Gives a whole new meaning to “…when pigs fly.”

  • homeboysolitude November 10, 2014, 12:43 pm

    Awesome video. These hogs do destroy anything and everything in their path. Nice job. Keep up the good work.

  • scott November 10, 2014, 12:00 pm

    Hey rick grow the hell up! You have no idea what farmers go through with this invasive species, down here in the south I’ll take whatever I can get to rid a group as fast as possible and this is a damn good way to do it. There away from the populouse , everything looks like it was done in a safe manner. Their feral hogs , looks like you were brainwashed growing up with Disney movies clouding your mind with animals having personalities. Great video!!! And happy birthday marines!

  • WiscoGunner November 10, 2014, 10:51 am

    My first reaction was, “What a waste of good meat.” I can appreciate the non-hunter’s horror at seeing these hogs blown to pieces. This does not look humane, however, the death of these hogs was instantaneous unlike being shot when these tough animals often survive the first round and need to be tracked down and dispatched with a second and third round. Feral hogs are a major problem in the South and they are being hunted in any number of ways included by use of helicopter in some areas. Again, while I personally would not ever hunt animals in this way, the major problem I have is that the individuals are not harvesting the meat. Five hogs of that size would yield plenty of bacon!

  • JRHowosso November 10, 2014, 9:02 am

    Maybe y’all feel different if they were tearing up your crops and such………… judge not lest………

    • TxWrstmkr November 10, 2014, 10:49 am

      I fully agree with you JR. Here in Texas they are overwhelming. They are even tearing up the Liberals landscaped yards in Austin. Trapping them has become an industry. What do libs think they are eating in the 5 star restaurants when they order “Wild boar” chops or roast cooked medium rare? Ferrel hogs will eat anything, dead possums, deer guts, other wounded hogs and are sure to have a few parasites and diseases. They need to be thinned out and that’s a pretty good way to do it if you don’t want the meat.
      I for one do not care how we get rid of them as long as we do.

  • Dewey Vicknair November 10, 2014, 8:01 am

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of good ol’ ‘Murican gun owners that think this is cool. Luckily for guys like this, an IQ test isn’t a prerequisite for gun ownership.

    • ricolib November 10, 2014, 9:08 am

      dont be so darn sensitive. this is an amazing video. and its a great thing to know we have this tech over in the mideast.
      I think now a bunch a silly girly viewers are a bit over sensitized by the killing of a batch of soul less invasive hogs… so damn what!

  • rick November 10, 2014, 6:51 am

    What kind of idiot DOES this AND films it.
    Do you call yourself a hunter?
    You call yourself a responsible gun owner?
    It’s this kind of ass wipe that gives all hunters, sportsman and gun owners a bad name.
    Grow the hell up, idiot!

    • Wakeup November 10, 2014, 1:14 pm

      You need to grow up, stop insulting people and things which you have ZERO clue about.
      They are not officially “hunting”, they are eradicating pests, just like ex-large cockroach…. that’s why its legal. It is classified as Pest control with no limits on the takes or how you put them down, you can kill them anyway you see fit in many states, they even offer machine gun ferel hog “hunts”. These hogs are causing over $500,000 million in damages each year in Texas alone and are spreading very dangerous diseases. Even with a massive 24hr/7 /365 unrestricted hog “hunting” through out most southern states, these ferel hogs are spreading very much like a plague.
      So stop being sooo ignorant and research something before you make an ass out of yourself next time.

    • J November 10, 2014, 1:38 pm

      What part of feral hogs being killed instantaneously bothered you the most? Was it because they weren’t blood tracked for hours after being shot with a .223? Is it because you think they should be shot individually? I think you are missing the entire point of killing feral hogs, a pest. I see this reaction to our Crow hunts, the famous Gopher hunts, Dove hunts, anything people don’t understand or isn’t in their own personal culture they automatically insult people and try to hide behind the “huntership” and “responsible gun owner” angles. Some states consider Feral Hogs a pest, some consider it to be a game animal. Most states have the “landowner-can-kill-as-many-of-them-as-they-can” law. But you consider yourself judge and jury to something you know nothing about?

    • C A Cook November 10, 2014, 8:03 pm

      My opinion? These assholes should be locked up. They not only give law abiding gun owners a bad rap, they posted it on line so the anti gun crowd can use it against all the rest of us. Stupid.
