His daughter began screaming as he got up to check on his dog, Cruiser.
He looked out the back window and saw nothing, so he ran to the front of the house and couldn't believe what he was seeing.
Cruiser was barking at a massive wild hog, which was about five yards from the family's front porch.
Wade said it was not a good situation and went and grabbed his .38-caliber revolver and went back onto the front porch.
It took three shots to take the hog down before it hit the ground.
The next day, he took the hog to a nearby peanut company to use its scales to weigh the wild beast.
He plans to display the hog's stuffed head and shoulders at his taxidermy shop. Rest of meat was thrown away because of the heat and humidity.
He had no regrets in killing the hog and would do it again, which had tusk-like teeth that were 6 inches long. Feral hogs cause millions of dollars in damage annually, and hunters on private land can kill as many of them as they want under the AL and MS law.
