Got this one a couple weeks back. He'd been seen on camera laying down at the feeder @ 30 minutes before spin time several times.

Biggest one I've taken at this place. Look to do some more damage and coon control this weekend.

For reference, I'm 5'10" 175. Didn't put him on the scale but it was all a buddy and I could muster to drag him 4 feet from under a cedar to get the strap on him. I'm sure the local buzzards and other critters ate well for a few days.

That hog look somewhat domestic. Looks to has a shorter snout then most big boars Iíve seen. Big pig regardless.

I thought the same thing but I'm not aware of anyone that has domestic hogs around there.

only takes a domestic pig 2 weeks to become wild once they escape. Could be offspring from an escaped domestic hog and wild hog who knows. Still a big ole hog.

Nice hog!

It can literally take generations for a particular phenotypic trait to be lost once hogs get into the wild. Some traits will take longer than others. They all have some domestic in them. For that matter, they all have some "Russian" in them as they were all European boars before they were domesticated.

Yep. Years ago, we had a place in San Saba that had a strong Hampshire trait. Signature white band but they were anything but domesticated. smile

That's a big 'ol pig. Doesn't look like he's missed too many meals. Nice work.

Keep After 'Em!

I get that I just think this one looks like it is more domestic then a lot Iíve seen. He also has cutters and most domestic hogs donít so maybe he is 50/50 rather than mostly wild. He just looks a little different to me. Might just be because he is so fat. roflmao
