Will give an answer when I ground check him, hopefully this weekend.
The feeder is your typical boss buck protein at a normal height. Included a picture of the feeder with a deer around the same area so you can appreciate the size, as I know pictures are difficult to judge relative scale from.

I added the other pic just because it was funny

Edited to make the pic of deer and hog about the same magnification. The original pics made the deer look smaller as it wasnít magíd up like the hog pic is. I think I got pretty close to make the feeder look about same size.

This is southern OK and my typical doe this year ran about 125-130# in the late season.

I've come to the conclusion Snake Oil had his unusually large big toe on the scale, I'm revising down to 205. Waiting for the actual.... yawn

Ok, resurrecting a thread from a month ago, because I was finally able to connect with this guy. I am going to ask for a few more guesses before I give the weight.

His head wasnít fully off the ground, but it was close, so I would say no more than 5-10# above this

And that is part of the problem with guessing from pictures. Hogs may look larger or smaller than they actually are.
