Re: Bummer

Nope didn't get this one to the scales. It was about all I could do to get the pic's he was pretty rank.

Based on some of the others we have weighed, I would put him somewhere between 180 and 200. He was a lot more than what he looks in the pic's. Real thick from top to bottom and pleanty of muscle.

He had several cuts and gashes on his shoulders and front legs, he was definately a tush hog for sure. Wouldn't have wanted to have to have taken him riled up in the thick stuff. Been there done that, don't care to repeate it.

Re: Bummer

i would say the odds of me crawling on my stomach, in a swamp, with low light, after a wounded 500 lb hog would be much lower then finding the bullet after the shot!

thanks for the story and pics.

Re: Bummer

Dang, I didn't know hogs got that big (500lbs) or were that tough, 4 shots from a 7 STW is amazing to me. Those hogs sounds like there a real pain in the *****.

Re: Bummer

A sow has a liter every six months. They can breed at six months old. A single sow will produce 280 hogs in her lifetime. It is estimated that there are 4.5 million hogs in Texas.

Here is a picture of one it took us two months to get. He had dug a hole in a small airport runway and flipped a plain.

The airport called me. They had me set up my shooting trailer at the end of the runway. East Texas verson of homeland defence. Can you picture two guys sitting on top of a trailer with 300 Win mags at JFK?.
