    If that's a little pig I'd sure like to see one of your big pigs. :)

    Little? That thing reminds me of the monster animal on the movie Ghostbusters!

    What would you estimate that hog weighed?

    For as weight i don't know but it took both of use to rolling it over I don't weigh many hogs but i would say around 375-400 all we did was cut the head of so he can mount it it weight 48# the next day at the taxidermy.

    The story goes like this. We where riding around shooting stuff at night we where heading back to the ranch house when i drove over a cattle guard and we heard a hog squeal so i backed up and drove over to a feeder we have about 500 yards away when we drove by the feeder there was nothing there but about 75 yard passed it there he was with a sow. i guess he had something else on his mind. my buddy shot him around 45-50 yards with my AR15 with cheap monark 55 soft point one shot DRT
