Running through some of my pictures off my camera here in east texas and ran into this one.

How big would you say this one is? He's a regular visitor.

Looks stalky and thick...140lbs? Maybe a little less. Not sure it gets to 150 though...

scratch think stealth is pretty close live weight, like pappy always say's: pudding, food on de table had one show up on cam few days ago, i'm de worst hunter on dis form. seen were people do the tape method for weight, i'm usualy mile or two from truck let alone scale & usualy take quarters & backstap. tape is supose to be acurate. sorry for lengthy post. they can take me outa the woods, but my mind wonders rofl as pappy would say. flag

Pretty close I think. He sure is a muddy booger.

There is a spring about 300 yards away. Appears he like to soak in it before eating breakfast. He is a regular shopper.

scratch why U wanna be tazered over weight of hog rofl how high ta bottom of spinner, it might be round 90-110#. hogs got wallow in creek behind food plot & feeder, just never in right place right time. edit: several years back hogs rooted around leg's & knocked over feeder several nights in row, ended up running cable tree ta tree. flag

As ever, pics are notoriously bad for making weight estimates, especially when you don't know the scales or distances of objects in a stranger's images. Looking at the size and shape of the boar and looking for cutters development, that is a younger hog. I would be inclined to think he is closer to txvarminter's end of the guess range so far, maybe very close. So small, but healthy loooking.

Tis fun ta guess though, i'm postaddic just Choot-en ya can use de tape method & then compair ta scale. u still got that formula, tried that but guess didn't do it right. flag

That camera is roughly 20 yards from feeder. He is right about half way. Bottom of the black plastic spinner on the feeder is about 6'6" off the ground.

He's definitely going on the smoker. Just set my stand up this past weekend. Want to do a Euro mount on a head for my office but I don't think he's what I am looking for. Don't know about those cutters though. Can tell he has some but length is the question.
