It's pretty amazing how some animals can survive an injury and like this pig can dominate. I posted awhile back a huge three legged pig we called "Gimpzilla" Now we just refer to him as "The Gimp" about a 1 1/2 months ago I pulled some pix off the game cam of a huge pig with a gimp leg. To make a long story short. The rancher said he shot at a 3 legged pig but didn't know if he hit him. I checked my game cam and the gimp that had been a regular had not been photographed in over a month. Surely the gimp was dead. Then one day last week he showed up at my feeder again. I had pre-arranged the green light for my son to shoot him with his bow and I would video. As ususal my son wasn't listening and blew his opportunity. Next morning I would take the shot on the gimp. But for the first time in two weeks the gimp did not show. No doubt he smelled us the first morn and wasn't coming back. No doubt he is a smart pig but he would have died if I would have used firepower. The rancher's son has also taken a shot at him and obviously missed. They are hot on the gimps trail and he probably won't make it another week. Personally I kinda like seeing him but he is a vicious thing and doesn't let any other animals at the feeder but himself. He sounds down right ugly when he is pizzed. Also had this 7ptr come in. Poor thing had its front lower jaw missing. I was fixing to put him out of his misery while he was slurping up corn. He had the back half of his jaw and I could hear corn crunching. One more step and he was mine when he got a wiff of the videographer(my son) and he was gone. It was a pretty gross sight with his tongue hanging out and all the drool but this buck was surviving with only half a jaw. Couple of pix and a vid of the gimp and the no jaw buck.
