I'm a life long hunter but this is my first season in Texas. Also my first time with hogs on the menu. I got a small lease in the northern part of Jack County on the Clay county line. Been getting some OK bucks on the camera and some hogs. This is the biggest two hogs so far. How big are these hogs? The fist one is the largest and for reference the legs on the feeder are 5ft.

First post at THF also smile

The pictures makes him look bigger than his actual size. The feeder is in the background with the pig standing close to the camera.

Welcome to the forum. I'd say the first one would go about 250#

Get you a measuring tape that you can wrap around the hog once dead. Wrap it around the chest of the pig and take the number of inches, multiply by 10 then subtract 200. That will give you the weight. I think that's the right formula

I always think hogs are smaller than they turn out to be. Shoot one thinking its about 100 lbs and it turns out to be 150+

That looks like a 150-175 lb hog to me.

Yes, RickyM, that is correct: Heart girth X10, -200 = approx. weight. He is big enough for a Dirt Nap !!

I look at him and the only thing I think of is he would make the perfect AR-10 pin cushion. I would make it a personal challenge to put as many bullets in him, or through him, before he fell to the ground as possible. Mag dump would be appropriate on that pig.
