Checked my game cam last weekend and found this brut hanging around. Any guess on his weight?

Hard to guess without a reference. Looks awful stout with a lot of muscle and bone though. He'll be a prize to get no matter how much.

Guessing that the t post to the left sticks up 3 1/2' I'll say about 250. That guy is built like a tank.


See y’all around the campfire.

Odd angle image, but over 200 sounds good. Based on how he looks and the shape of his head, he still has some filling out to do and he is going to be a monster if you don't get him soon.

I'm guessing just north of 200. He is young for sure. How tall are the t-posts in the picture?

Have him turn around so we can see his boys. That gives you a better idea of the age and anticipated weight.

My guess is 275 in that picture.


If you ain't hunting, you ain't living right.

Just guessing like everyone else, but I'd say >200, maybe 225. He has really good muscle definition on the hindquarters and shoulders, which to me indicates he could fill out quite a bit more if he gets a good food supply.

2cents muscle definition can fool ya ta actual size... Good friend at foundry, we called iron arms , lifted weights, arms were big .. i had good definition, guy emptying bucket while i was shoveling slag in hole, said:
Quote:
look at his arms, he'a got bumps on bumps

It made my arms look bigger, at 140#, could curl 60# , just didn't have the chest & shoulder muscles.. Weight lifters build bulk then light weights, & more reps for definition.. would still like ta know length of rebar or t-post sticking out.. That will determine size of hog more than muscle definition... i got cheap posts... flag

I'm guessing 200ish but, if you get him, you can sit about 5 feet behind him and make him look like HOGZILLA and post it for the world to see. You'll get lots of attention too. wink
