That's what I came in here to find out. Daughter and I saw one last time at the least that from 20 yards out looked as big as the 4 wheeler we were riding to the tank to do some fishing. Of course I'd left both the bow and 30.06 at the cabin. Scared my little girl so much that we went back to the cabin for a late breakfast instead of going to the tank.

It seems our lease is starting to get more than our fair share of these nasty bastages. They killed another one just as big as the top pic, but it had no cutters.

What is considered a big ole pig? To me its 275+ and many posted are well shy of that.

275+ is hard to do and many people think they do until they put them on the scale

I bet I have killed 10+ over 265 and 2 over 300. 300 is the magic number but it is HARD.

Yup. I can agree with that. Anything over 250 is big to me. I do believe most people’s scale is just off. They just believe hogs are bigger than they are. We catch 2-300 hogs a year with dogs and weigh tons of them. Even with all the examples, it’s still easy to guess something way bigger.

I’ve been lucky to catch 25-30 hogs over 300#’s the last 10 years with dogs. In that time we’ve caught 3 over 400#’s. To me the 400 mark is our “white whale” so to speak. Those type hogs take on a different look. Almost beastly. I believe the black hog I posted is our next one over 4.

My GF had been trying to kill this bugger for a year, but he never showed when she was there. He made a mistake the last weekend of gun season and I just happened to be there.
