I think your son weights 160 lbs. It is right there in the text! roflmao

Seriously, taking pictures at weird angles and poor light does nothing to help with eyeball weight assessment. People don't normally see hogs and people like that, together, such that this would even be a remotely normal circumstance for weight assessment.

In the future, just carry a measuring tape. Take a heart girth measurement. That is where you pull the tape around the hog just behind the front legs, IMMEDIATELY behind the front legs at the armpits. Pull the tape down tight enough to compress the hair. Take the number of inches and multiply by 10 and then subtract 200. So a 41' measurement would be 210 lbs. A 37' measurement would be 170 lbs. This won't work for pigs under 30 or 40 lbs or thereabouts.

Do what DNS said to determine weight. Itís accurate and quickly gives a weight. Poor kid had to lay next to a pig that likely has ticks and fleas, plus heís laying in taller grass that probably has chiggers. The first thought I had when seeing the photo is the pig(s) evened the score.

Congrats on a nice pig.

Between 150-170. Canít think of a good reason to ever lay next to a wild pig.

Funny pic, but man I'd be scratching nonexistent itches for a week after laying in the grass next to that filthy critter.

Whally world sells the tapes in fabric section. It will be cheaper than Flea/Tick collar you will wear in the dog house. wife

I use inexpensive steel tapes. They don't stretch like a fabric tape will.

Probably not quite as good, but I have a couple of small plastic measuring tapes that were promo giveaways. They don't seem to stretch, although I doubt that they'll last forever.
