Default How big can wild hogs get??

I'll make this short.

Was at the lease Sunday changing batteries on the camera. All the sudden some pigs came walking up on me. They saw me and ran off. One of the pigs in the group was at least 7 foot long and had to be around 700 pounds. He couldn't even get through the fence where the others ran. Finally he made a nose dive right through the fence and broke one of the strains of barbwire. Looked like a domestic. Kind of like a large Yorksire. He was solid tan.

So do you think he's just a domestic that got in with a group of feral hogs or is it possible for a wild hog to get that big? We have A TON of hogs on our ranch but have never taken one over 500 pounds.

What do you guys and gals think?

Most likely someone's domestic. I'd say it's pretty unlikely for a wild hog to get that large.

I bet he's not as big as your estimating but they can get very large.

That's what I figured. Looks like I'm gonna have to get in the stand and take him out.

When I saw him my jaw just dropped. My girlfriend was with me and she yells "Is that cow running with the pigs"? I just looked at her and said. "Get in the truck baby".

Well we used to raise hogs when I was young. Had a yorksire that was over 700 as a pet. He was just as big as her if not a little bigger.

Field biologists tell me that when he sees or hears of a "wild" hog weighing more than 200-220 pounds, he immediately suspects the animal recently escaped from a nearby farm. I have hunted them for years, from the Rolling Plains to the Rio Grande, and I have never seen one that weighed more than 210 pounds. That hog, BTW, was said to weigh 300# -- until we actually weighed it.

I killed one in August of 2010 that was right at 400. He was solid black with nice cutters. There are two people here on TBH that will confirm my story.

Well I have been in the wild hog hunting business for almost ten years now.. Weve killed thousands of hogs and the biggest truly wild hog Ive ever had dealings with weighed 425lbs.

Now on the other hand weve had several that had alot of domestic characteristics that have weighed 5-800.

Most folks that kill these monster hogs that weigh enormous amounts do not have a set of scales.

LOL!!!

I was actually sober.

Yeah the more I think about it the hog did have those floppy ears like a domestic. Plus being that solid tan color. I gotta get this dude on the ground. Good thing I have my feeder barrel strapped to a tree.

I tried to get to the truck and grab the 30-30. By the time I got the rifle out that's when he distroyed the fence.

I agree, i've hunted se texas for pigs for over 18yrs and i've only seen 2 over 400. 1 was a barr killed in nome by my dad when i was young....we have the picture somewhere....my gpa is 5'8" and this hog was quite a bit taller than him with is butt on the ground. The other was a sow we caught in 2009 with 2 dogs in labelle texas.....it took a honda rancher and a can-am 800 to get her back to the truck she weighed 432 on certified scales.

Your field biologist doesn't know much about wild hogs to make a statement like that..

I've personally shot and weighed 6 hogs off our E.Tx property that were 250+ with the biggest one at 304.. and they were definitely not domestic or farm pigs.
Those are just the ones shot.. we have tons of them that size out there.
Majority taken off that lease are between 50-175 mostly because they are shot for meat, or no one wants to mess with loading/dumping the larger sows/boars.
NO domestic/farm pigs..


Got one just a few weeks ago that has a live hunt thread on here with the scale pic off the S.Tx property at 189lbs and it was on the small side of what we have out there for big boars..

Will agree though that most of the real monsters shown at 400+ I've seen, have the domestic/farm traits to them... or have been cut.

250 and 300 plus isn't all that rare. 400 is rare and 700 is most likely a former tame hog.

I agree with this. I have seen two killed in the 280 range that were confirmed by a scale. One was solid muscle and had some Russian blood in him, he was not of domestic descent for sure. The other was just a fatty, no domestic in him either. So, Feral hogs can break 220 easily from my experience. People do typically over estimate weights on hogs, however the scale confirmed these two porkers weight.

They can get big. I shot n killed one in 06 That was near 500. Yes 500lbs. My college roommate can confirm. He was with me. And our neighbors have caught and killed several that we're over 400. If they have waand, food, and cover they will grow!! I hunt on buckners creek in Muldoon and we have bigguns all the time!!

I killed one in 2002 that bottomed out 350# scales...and his head and shoulders were on the ground. He was too long to hang on our A frame with the scale we weighed deer on. He was well over 400#;s probably pushing 500. Ive seen thousands of wild hogs and killed a bunch. This pig was by far the biggest I've seen. I had him shoulder mounted and it is the LAST hog I will ever cape out as well...What a freaking job!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unless you put the "big hog you/your buddy/your crazy uncle/your grandma's lawn boy or your Great Aunt Ester" killed on a legitimate scale, I find a lot of these guesses on weight pretty hard to swallow. I know this 'cus I used to do it all the time!!!

One of the reasons wild hogs don't typically get far over the 300# mark is simply because it takes a LOT of food to sustain animal that size. On top of that, the truly mature boars are running sows and will burn up a lot of weight in that pursuit. (I'm not recommending this as a weight loss program!) I've hunted hogs in E. Texas for over 30 years and I've only seen a couple of hogs that would go over 300 and they were domestic / wild cross barrows.

I too never realized that wild hogs could get rather large, until I saw a very dark figure crossing the road ahead me back in the spring of 2000. Was trying to start home after fishing at Richland Chambers. My windshield was smeared and splatter really good with lots of bugs. I was not far from the dam after I turned onto a different FM road and spotted what I thought was a steer crossing the road ahead of me. As I got closer, you could plainly see that it wasn't a steer at all, but a very large hog. He was really cocky acting and appeared to be in no hurry, despite my truck getting closer. I slowed down to get a good look and he just walked slowly to the other side of the road and stepped over a barbed wire fence. He was following a well traveled trail in that area.

Sure wish I could've gotten a picture of that porker. He was black as could be.

I like to think of it like this. Ok, so Skinny(Shane) weighs around 300-320 lbs. and is 6'5" tall. Well, we all know how big his center mass including his over sized melon is, right?? Well, think of what his arms and legs must weigh??? Now, think about a hog's anatomy. Do you see much weight in their spindly little short legs??? It's gonna be one massive hog to weigh 300 lbs.

After the pic we tried to drag him on the sand... didnt budge.

Just my guess though... he was the biggest I have ever shot, 2nd biggest I have ever seen... passed on a shot once because for a second I thought it was a cow!
