I've posted some here before, including a couple of great big old sows I shot one evening with the .204.
450-700lbs is pretty common for boars around here and sows between 350-500 are pretty common as well.
We aren't overrun with them like ya'll are down there so those we do have eat better.
For scale I'm 5'8 and 210lbs. The boar hung out at right around 495 gutted.
The smallest sow in the group of three weighed around 300lbs. The big old girl in the middle right at 500lbs.
For scale the dog on your left wighted almost seventy lbs and the male right at 90. I shot all three in about twenty seconds out in the middle of a big wheat field in Throckmorton County one evening.
I have seen some killed in Archer, Baylor, Young, and Throckmorton counties over 900lbs. There was one about 10 years ago killed in Throckmorton county that gutted weighed 1,230lbs. The had to bring him out of the field with a winch truck.
