What'll this thing weigh?
Second picture is what was left of that feeder when he got through playin with it. He did two of them like that. Eventually scattered them all through the woods in little pieces.
I'm not sure I should shoot that thing with my 50# recurve, might just pi## him off.
Cheapo feeders but were there when I leased the place.

If you have a chance to shoot that bastage, shoot him. He'll bleed out just like a little one.....

I don't think that's 8ft to the top. It looks like moultrie's 5.5ft feeder. Each leg section is 12" and there's only two leg sections on each completed leg of the feeder....it is a big hog though.

It was a Moutrie . I read that they now make a 5.5 and and an 8'. Never measured it but wasn't 5.5 for sure. I'm 6' and had to stand on my 4w rack to fill it. It was old, left on lease yrs ago.. Maybe it had started growing...

I'm really not interested in his wt. Just thought someone besides myself might be surprised to see a hog that big. Personally, I never have.

size and weight estimates aside... (of both pig and feeder). There is one thing that is certain: it will take more than one person to swing it onto your 4 wheeler.

Good luck - hope you don't have to drag him out of anywhere by hand.

Lol. Like Bisch said , he wouldn't be edible anyway. I'll drag him out behind the 4w if I ever get him. Almost ashamed of myself but I bought a cheapo compound the other day cause I know my stickbows won't kill it. I've never even shot one b4 but I thought they were accurate. I can't hit the dang target with it. Seriously! I heard guys say they shot javelina at closed to 50 yds with them at that TexasShoot out. Were they BSing me?

I noticed said compound lashed to your 4 wheeler in the pic... wasnt gonna point it out

I don't shoot compounds all that well past 30 yards either...

I don't know about that hog not tasting good. Weight is a bad measurement of taste. Have eaten plenty of 200# hogs that taste fine. Have had 80# that tasted musky... so...

Also, have killed a couple 200#ers with a stickbow just fine.

Yeah I know. I have a 287#er in the freezer we've been eating on for a year but pictures don't do justice here. I wouldn't be surprised if this thing weighs over 4. I hope to find out.

Swamprabbit also eats javis and sheep! ������

And they were not pulling your leg! I know a couple guys who can routinely keep arrows in a volleyball sized target at 80-100yds. Like anything else, it takes a lot of practice to get that good!!!!!

I practice out to 40yds with my compound and can group them within an apple size group. However I cant shoot a Trad bow worth a ****. So I think it is whatever your comfortable with. Plus you have to adjust your form to what you are shooting.


As far as the pig I say he is about 250.

Yeah the whole myth of big boars not being good to eat is a shame. I've had 90lb sows that were horrible andb200lb boars the were very good. The hide is where the smell is. Hose them off good, get them on ice quick and soak them and most likely you get meat that is good to eat.

Ronnie, don’t worry about that compound. I wouldn’t even be concerned with my 50# recurve. In fact, I’d love to try one that big with it.

You're a better shot than I am though. With my luck I'd hit him in that 3" shield, just p..s him off and he wouldn't let me out of my tree!!

I can pop 1" dots at 30 yards with my compound. Just ain't near as much fun as missing them at 15 with my longbow.
