I tried something new last Monday night. I have a farmer in Lowndes County with a large standing Silage field. To say it was planted thick would be an understatement. You can't see more than 10 yards hardly anywhere. I eased around the edges listening and getting down on my knees and looking in. I had some REAL close shots and ended the night with 17 kills. I also possibly killed my largest hog ever but I won't know for sure. No way to weight him. My longest shot of the night was in the 12-15 yard range. It got hairy a time or three.

Find a way to weigh him.
My biggest one topped out a 300# scale and I never got an actual weight.
I've always regretted that. Wish I had gotten an accurate weight.

I agree; try your best to get a weight.
You will always wonder if you don’t!

I weighed one at 420 # and caught another one that appeared to be larger 2 days later. I feel certain he was!! But, I will just never really know.....

Too late now. The farmer came in with a tractor with a bucket on it. I tied a rope to him and honestly could not move him. He was a stud.

Surely you took a picture of it!

That's a fine haul.
The pictures can't do justice.
I typically guess too light. Pigs always fool me.
I can usually guess a deer weight real close but pigs are always heavier than I guess.

You wore em out, what is your yearly total up to now?


If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
