There's close, and then there's really close.
A trio of hounds have a large hog pinned to the ground while a hunter shouts commands from some 15 feet away. Well, at least that's how it begins.
The scenario quickly unravels, however, as the pig suddenly leaps to it's feet and begins a direct charge forward.
This intense video shows why hog hunting isn't for the faint of heart. Things can change in a split second, and as you're about to see, this hunter came within inches of getting seriously hurt, or worse.
Here's the thrilling clip:

Think this guy thanked his lucky stars for getting that shot off at the last second? Talk about fight or flight.
One thing for certain is that this hog caused one heck of an adrenaline rush!
Reminds us of a video we recently posted, which showed a wounded wolf taking a leap at a snowmobiling hunter. Talk about intense! (watch that footage HERE)
