I'm lucky enough to be able to hunt every once and a while at my father in law's deer lease in Mason Texas. Since I'm not a member of the lease I don't mess with the game cams. When I get out there I'm basically hunting without any prior knowledge of how the hogs are moving. I've been pretty successful at that ranch so far but I've never killed a pig bigger than 100 pounds. That all changed this last weekend. A buddy and I went up for a weekend, we corned the roads and covered a lot of ground on foot. At midnight we were able to sneak up on this big pig. At first I thought he was a cow but then quickly realized I was looking a a giant hog. He was cooling off in a small pound. He was on his way out when we popped him. It took my buddy and I 45 mins to get him into the truck. I'm guessing he's about 270lbs. My buddy is 6"3 for reference. One shot with the 6.8 to the neck followed up with .270 to the heart put him down. I'm making a euro mount from the skull. Finally my hours of hiking around the ranch yielded this big boy. It was a rush of a lifetime.

Big pig and nice job getting him!

For frame of reference, I have personally seen 175-200# hogs stretch further than what you have. Your hog is big chested, so he is probably all of 225-250, but he is not long, which means he isn't huge. Not trying to Quibble with you, he is big, but unless you are used to dragging dead weight, it is quite deceiving how heavy it really is...
