Thanks! Been shooting them with rage having good success. Something made me switch to my fixed muzzy on this big guy. He only made it 30 yards

You need a bigger scale. That one may have broke the 300 mark. Dang good one for a bow.

Ummmm no!
Maybe a tad over 300
2100 lbs is the size of a 6 year old bull.
And most bulls donít even get that big.

Sounds like a fishing story I heard once

Pretty sure he fat fingered it... Common sense really. Either that or he's 100% full of c.r.a.p.

Look at the straps on the hind end of the pig. There’s no pressure at all on the strap. Mmm. Makes you wonder about that picture.

I assumed that was a typo and should be pegged out at 210.

Me, too. I also agree with PigSticka, I don't think he'll push much over 300.

But am I the only one wondering why you put a pocket pistol in his mouth??

that goes to show just how large a hog has to be to break

Yup, I think lots of people weigh them with their eyes.

Had I not actually scaled him I would have guessed 290-320 he was thick in every aspect. This is a crawfish eating marsh roaming machine. Not one of those grain fed monsters from Texas! Biggest Iíve taken with a bow or rifle. Iím not into ďpigsĒ but Iíll Euro this guy. Got me pumped, a 200Ē whitetail doesnít even do that to me
