So I started hand corning this one area and I had NICE deer coming to it.. I think I was doing it too regular because this guy found it and then the deer vanished! He is a beast! time to pull an all nighter and get his sorry [censored]! he has been coming every night that I hand corn and stayng for hours eating everything I throw out!


I would guess 320 - 350 lbs easy. Look at thoe cutters!

You'll need to get on him as soon as you can. Boars travel a lot and will not stay in one area for long.

No offense, but don't be too disappointed when you boar doesn't make the 300+ lb list. You're looking at approximately 240 lbs. there IMO.

Anyway, good luck, hope to see some pics.

Flint.

I'm in agreement that he's probably less than 300#, those are pretty rare.

But he's a big ol' pig, that's sure. Good Luck!

Throw just as much corn as you normally do, figure out what time he normally shows up and be there 2 hours early. My guess is about 230lbs.

That is a nice looking pig. Take the previous advice and get on him quick, before he moves on.

I've been hanging almost every pig on an electronic scale for going on 3 years, just to try to improve my ability to estimate weights. I have gotten a lot better once they are on the ground, but I still consistently over estimate them on the hoof.

What I have learned:
Most folks hit as much as 50% over on weights. If i do not see a scale or a tape measure in the pictures, I immediately discount the claimed weights from most folks. This is certainly true for some of paid guides and outfitters! A big part of their income is tips and the bigger the clients pig, the bigger the tip they are likely to get. I have seen one of the popular guys in the Houston area grab a pig by front and back legs and heft him into the clients pickup...then declare him 210#. Try hefting one of your 200$ friend into the back a pickup sometime.


My (over)estimate puts him at 250-260.

But he is still a BIG PIG! If you don't have a scale, use a cloth tape measure around his chest, then take the length. Several sites have a very good chart for estimating based on tape measures. Take the head and leave it for the buzzards and fire ants, the boil it, glue the teeth and cutters, and mount it.

I bought a scale, now referred to as my lie detector. As for guessing weight without a scale, I have found that I can not drag a deer or hog of 250 pounds. Naturally, ya gotta shoot em first...

So try to drag them. 150 pounds is dragable. 200 is borderline dragable, so you drag em a little ways. Again, be sure to shoot em first...works better that way.
