Really not much of a story to tell on this one other than I have put in countless hours trying to track this feller down ever since he started showing up on trail cam.

Tubby got his name because he is so fat (hard to figure that one out I know). He is so fat his legs look like they are 6" to short for him and I would imagine he would high center in some of the mud holes out there right now. Anyway I put in a lot of time trying to find him and have passed on tons of pigs waiting for him to show himself. That time came yesterday afternoon on 11/9. He showed up at about 225 yards and I tried squeezing off a shot several times but he was so skittish he would run off before I could send a round his way. I was finally able to touch one off but the only shot I had was a skull shot and that was all I needed. The 7 Mag dropped him instantly at about 260 yards.

It wasn't until I walked up on him that I realized his right cutter was 3/4th of the way gone. Never noticed that on the game cam pics.

Well when I was getting game cam pics of him I was putting him around 300 that's why I spent so much time chasing him. Once he was on the ground he lost a few pounds and I would call him a 250 class pig. 300 class pigs are just flat out rare no matter how many people claim to have killed one, so when I thought I had one on camera I gave it all I had trying to put him down and still came up short.

After chasing pigs for over 20 years one thing I have learned is that judging them on the hoof is extremely difficult! For example a few days ago I shot a black and white boar at about 225 yards that I almost didn't shoot because I figured him at around 75 pounds. I talked myself into going ahead and shooting him and when I rolled up on him with the ATV I realized I missed his weight by a mile. He was probably twice my original estimate.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

He is a fatty, for sure. And I'm with you....it's hard for me to guess a pig's weight. A wild pig, anyway. I can guess better on show pigs. Maybe it's cause of their hair?


Mmmm Hmmm
