Cant see his other side but if this pig turns out to be a boar and is albino do you think he would be worth something as a trophy to a hunting ranch?

He would look right good mounted on my wall I know that.

First I don't think he is albino and he may not even be white. On my game camera's, light red pigs will show up as white on pics taken during the night with taken with IR. Some might consider a white pig a trophy but I don't. While all white wild pigs are not very common, there are many of them around. When I look at game cam pics, I almost always see at least one white one but sometimes those white ones turn out to be red.

Could be, and I know what you are talking about. With that said I have seen over a thousand pics on this cam at that angle and at that distance and at that location and none have come out that white. But for arguments sake I am curious if someone would pay extra for him if he turns out to be an albino boar. That would make for some trophy.

IF it turns out to be a true albino (boar or sow), I think you could get a little extra $$ for it. Would be a cool pig to kill.

I don't think he's going to be albino. I'm not sure if he's a better trophy unless he has some good cutters on him

I might not pay to shoot a pig but I would pay to go on a camping trip with good friends and then shoot a pig if it walked out.

We had a big blonde boar on our place years ago. We hunted him hard. Then one day my buddy shot a big dark
/muddy boar. We power washed him (this was back in the day when we skinned every one we shot). He turned out to be the big blonde boar. He wasn't albino but was cool nonetheless. Hope you get him.

Well that trap he is in has a breach they made Saturday night when it tripped. I installed a saloon door and obviously did not secure the paneling to the door on the side well enough as they were able to push them apart. I will arm it again Friday afternoon and hopefully I will have some LDPs of whatever he is. If I was up there full time Id feed him back out and get some bacon.

His ears look drooped to me so that indicates Chester right?

This^^

Light colored or red would be my bet. Maybe he will show in daylight for you one day.

Could be one of many white hogs but I think it's safe to say it is not a Landrace. Body is way too short. http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/swine

That will never happen at my place. The doggers keep them nocturnal. Maybe seen pigs twice in 3 yrs during day light. Hopefully I cant trap him and then we will know whats up for sure.
