My hog hunting isnít much to brag about, but my trapping is doing just fine. There was a big un in the trap this morning, and he was not happy. Probably one of the biggest hogs iíve taken here on our place. I couldnít pull him out of the trap, and had to use the ATV winch. I thought maybe heíd be close to 240 or so, but the scale said 195.

This was a long hog, but not as thick through the chest as some of the other big ones iíve trapped or shot. Tusks about 1 inch long.

My flightless buzzard watched the whole shooting and dragging. I expect heíll hop over and be on that hog like a fat kid on a donut in no time at all.

Deadweight can be very misleading

Why don't you ask a mod to post your girth/weight chart as a 'sticky'?

Girth inches x 10 - 200 = weight

38 inches times ten =380 -200 pig weights 180

It's very common for folks to overestimate a dead hogs weight. Regardless of the wright it's a dead hog, so good job. I promise there are far fewer 300 pound hogs than folks claim.

Way fewer. Every boar is atleast 200 LOL. Last yr I was on a guided hunt on Ft Hood and killed a large boar. One of the other hunters looked at it and said its got to be atleast 300 prob more. I said I don't think so prob 220 max. We weighed it and field dress weight was 180 so add 20% for guts it was right around 220.
