Default What does he weigh?

Moved one of my feeders around and the hogs found it quick. Lots of them. Then they all disappear when this guy comes around. For reference, the barrel holds about 6 bags of corn so itís not huge.

I’m sure I’ve fed him at least that many bags. Plus the other lease members. He’s number one on the target list for sure.

Camera says he shows up every night around dark and comes back frequently all night until 4-5am.

Shoot him, weigh him, tell us what he weighed. Bet he poses at close to 325 lbs.

What's he weigh? I say enough! And I'm thinking that isn't a Moultrie 30-gal feeder.

We kill lots of hogs with thermal and try to weigh any big ones.. since we started doing this I now know less about guessing hog weights… Shoot boars all the time that we think will weigh 220 and they end up weighing 180. Also shoot boars that we think will weigh 180 and they end up weighing 220.. lol..

He’s bigger than 150 and less than 300 is all I can tell you

I had a lone boar, not quite his size, do the same. He ran 1 of my feeders for a few months and kept all other pigs away. Deer would eat alongside him.

Day after we killed him a sounder moved in

You are correct, it’s a Moultrie 30 gallon. The legs are buried at least a foot in the ground so it looks extra short though.

I should have waited to start this thread just before hunting weekend. Now I’m itching to go get him.
