Depending on the size of those pebbles/rocks on the ground, somewhere between 30-1000 lbs.

Hard to guess with nothing for size reference in either pic. I'll take 120 lbs.

ahah. i realize it's hard without a frame of reference .. but most people who take pics with their kills usually step back and it makes them look huge anyways ... I'm open to suggestions on what you'd like to see on the pic that would help ... here is a pic of him a few minutes earlier .. that feeder holds 16 sacs of corn. if that helps ..

the rain gauge tube is 20" tall .. from the top of the funnel to the float .. not counting the wood mount it's screwed into .. i just put that on 2 magnets so i can take it off when i refill the feeder and i can see rainfall on my pics on my phone..

that's an exact measurement right next to it so it should satisfy the critiques.

Only looked at the pics and no guesses on weight.
