"Uhh... h-hey, buddy! H-h-how's it... how's it going? You're not... you're not hungry, a-are you?"
It's the summer feeding season in for bears in Alaska right now, which typically runs May through late September. During this period, Alaskan brown bears will eat massive quantities of salmon, berries, grass, rodents, and small mammals, in preparation for winter hibernation. This makes summer the safest month to be around bears (although "safest" doesn't mean much; it's still super unsafe!) because they're walking around in lazy, lethargic, perpetual food comas.
"Naw, dude... I just had like 50 Doritos Locos Tacos, man... really freakin' full right now... uuuggghhh..."
On the night of February 28, eastern North Carolina hunter Jett Webb bagged a massive 7′ long, 500+ lbs wild boar:
One shot is all it took to turn one local man into a hunting celebrity.
It all began when Jett Webb went night hunting in Bertie County on February 28.
Webb says he was sitting up in a tree when he saw what looked like a large, adult boar. He fired one, very well placed shot of his .308 caliber AR-15 rifle.
WITN sat down with the 34-year-old hunter on Tuesday.
Webb recalls, "Heart, lung, yep. That's kind of what we try to go for. Clean kill, dropped him, stoned him right in his tracks."
