This Boar has winded me in the past. My buddy has also shot at him with his bow and missed. Any guesses on his weight.

No idea on the weight, but it's a big pig. Great job.

Hard to say on weight. North of 225 I suspect.

Nice piggie, congrats.

Pig Heart Girth Weights

Heart girth is measured in inches using a cloth measuring tape. The tape is placed directly behind the front legs, wrapped snugly around the heart girth, and read directly behind the shoulders.
Pig Weight = 10.1709 x Heart girth (inches) minus 205.7492.

Found to be 95% accurate to within 10 lbs.

Using the above formula, we get the following:

25 inches= 49 lbs. 26 inches= 59 lbs. 27 inches= 69 lbs.
28 inches= 79 lbs. 29 inches= 89 lbs. 30 inches= 99 lbs.
31 inches = 110 lbs. 32 inches= 120 lbs. 33 inches= 130 lbs.
34 inches= 140 lbs. 35 inches= 150 lbs. 36 inches= 160 lbs.
37 inches= 171 lbs. 38 inches= 181 lbs. 39 inches= 191 lbs.
40 inches = 200 lbs. 42 inches = 220 lbs. 43 inches = 230 lbs.
44 inches = 240 lbs. 45 inches = 250 lbs. 46 inches = 260 lbs.
47 inches = 270 lbs. 48 inches = 280 lbs. 49 inches = 290 lbs.
50 inches = 300 lbs. 51 inches = 310 lbs. 52 inches= 325 lbs.
55 inches needed to get approximately 350 lbs.
60 inches needed to get approximately 400 lbs.

That's a big'un for sure.

The ones with "racing stripes" usually don't make it to that size around here.

LOL, if he misses the big ones, how does he ever get any of the smaller ones?

Good sized hog. Always hard to guess the weight from pics. I'd say 220ish, maybe a little better.

Congrats! up
