My first Hog!

This is the first Hog I ever seen or shot! I was told it was a pretty good size cut Russian Boar. Nobody had a scale. We had to load him with a tractor. I shot him with my 257WBY w/110 ACCUBOND @ 220+yds running across my food plot. 1 shot, he looked liked he slid into home base.

Re: My first Hog!

Well, I had 2 people tell me it weighed at least 350lbs after I had gut it in the field.. I hooked it to a strap and dragged it close to a mile to my tractor so I could do something with it. I have been hunting in this food plot for 14 years and that was the first Hog I ever seen their. It was an exciting day to say the least. Bill Maylor..

I have shot a lot of hogs in the last ten years, and can tell you without a doubt that that hog, is in the 375lb range give or take a few. Great hog man, congratulations. .257 is pretty light for a hog, especially of that size, must have been great placement.

Almost looks like you might need a bigger hitch-haul. That's an impressive hog.

Re: My first Hog!

Great hog, I'm curious as to how it is gonna taste. I've shot so many hogs I've lost count...the big ones can be rancid. I agree, he's around 350, maybe a bit more.
