I've seen on here multiple times people say they couldn't roll a hog over to get the tape under it because it was too big and even 3 grown men couldn't flip it over. Well I'm here to call BS. Here I am in this video phone in one hand and rolling the hog with the other with minimal effort. Now if you try to roll it from the back towards the legs then yes it would be difficult. Original girth measurement was 46 but hog expanded slightly over night.

No more excuses

Great point! I've never not been able to flip over a hog very easily by doing it the same way you do..

Well hell, if ST can do it, anyone can. smile

I'm a city boy and know all you have to do is swing a back leg over. I am, right now, going to take my wife's fabric tape measure and put it my pack and purge that action from my memory. Thanks for the pic, I'm putting it on my phone.

Yeah, I have rolled over a dead horse. It was pretty tough to do because of the twisting of the body and it took a couple of tries before I figured out how to make it happen, but it was done. Claiming that you can't roll over a hog because it is so big is a pretty lame excuse. I haven't seen too many hogs bigger than a horse.

Good demo video!

A horse? Dang Brian... but y'all are right, it's all in technique not strength

Made it look easy you beast. Bottom line is most folks over estimate a hog's weight. We proved this by (wait for it) buying a scale. We had several claims of 300 plus pound hogs taken on the lease prior to the scales. This may sound crazy, but we haven't killed a single pig over 300 since buying the scale. We've killed some big pigs, but none over 260.

should have seen me throw him in the truck bed. I'll have to make a video of that next. Always do it solo even with a bad back.

I face the hogs feet angled towards the bed/tailgate of my truck with my side/ back to the tailgate. I grab the pig by the front and back top leg. I then sling/spin the pig toward my tailgate butt first. I can load some good sized hogs this way using momentum. I now have a trailer hitch receiver hoist to make the job a lot easier.

Inback right up to them, put a rope around their neck, climb into truck bed, reach down as far as I can to the hogs head, go from my knees to my feet into a squat position, and then deadlift the hog as high as I can, once the shoulders are past the tailgate just lean back and most the weight is on the tailgate, then just pull back and they slide right in. Have done quite a few 200+ lb hogs this way and it only takes about a minute.

On day 65, the Lord created rope! smile You guys are going to hurt yourselves. I drag mine to where we need to go, then throw a rope over a branch to pull 'em up.

I like to take pics on the tailgate with the big ones for size reference.

Killed both these boars in the same field a couple weeks apart.

My preferred method of loading hogs or hanging for cleaning, tractor with front end loader.

In 11 years of hunting the biggest hog we have ever shot was 235 lbs we weigh all the big ones. I don't think there are near as many 300+ pound hogs running around as people claim. I do believe some parts of the state are much more apt to grow big ones than others.

I don't butcher large bores, instead of putting them in the truck I have a meat hook about 18-24 inches long I hook one end in the safety chain loops on my truck and the other through the hock and take them away... just don't back up.
