    Not as much as i thought. I was guessing he would hit the 200 mark. He only weighed 160...think he has been chasing them sows hard and heavy...that was a thick pig for only 160lbs.

    I was surprised too...them brand new Cabelas scales must be off a bit. He felt like 200lbs anyway. I thought i checked the zero on them but i am gonna check again tonight. I know he absorbed a 150gr. cor-lokt right behind the shoulder like it was nothing...knocked him off his feet for a minute..then he remembered where the thicket was...still made it 60 yards before i had to put another shot into him. I have a perfectly mushroomed bullet that stuck in the hide on the other side. Not a drop of blood except where i finished him..Them ol' boar hogs are tough..

    I'm jealous of you guys who see and get hogs regularly. I occasionly get pics of'm but have never seen one to put in the freezer.

    O.K. just checked the scales...I am still pretty good at judging weight. The scales said 166lbs. yesterday to be exact. They are 45lbs off which puts him at 211lbs. I guessed 212 lbs yesterday which puts me one lb. off. Not bad since it has been a year since I weighed one. Not the biggest I have killed but I will take em that size all day, everyday.
     
  16. It seems like there are a lot of folks on this forum who eats these feral hogs. Then there are many who would shoot and let them lay. I live in Logan county and have yet to see any hogs where I hunt in Mt. Magazine area. My family loves wild hogs, especially the big boars. My dad always say the bigger the better. Personally, I rather eat these wild ones then store bought pork. I mean, come on, when did the piggy go to market? 2-3 months? Injected with preservatives and coloring? I use to raise chicken comercially and trust me "naturally organic?" Since when do you see a full size chicken in 7 weeks raised the old fashioned way?

    I like to thank every member on here who reports sightings and posts pix. That tells me I wont die when the apocalypse hit because I know how to live off the land! :flag:
