Not sure on that one.

The spring scale I had at the time only went to 300 lbs.

I have since gotten a digital scale that goes up to 600 lbs.

We have some pretty healthy hogs in Deep East Texas.

I've killed quite a few well over 300 lbs. but never anything that would get to 400.

Even some Sows (weighed) that were over 250 lbs. One was 280 lbs. That's a big sow anywhere.

But those are exceptional hogs. Mature Boars (3+ years old) will run 250-325 lbs. Sows about 160-210 (some heavier if carrying a load of piglets).

But I don't assign one pig over another any importance according to weight. They are ALL destructive and I don't hunt them for sport. Rather...to keep them from damaging my property.

Feral hogs are a scourge and I kill as many as I possibly can....of any age, size, weight or shape.
That's incredible. I completely understand, taking out the invasive species! One of my good friends just bought a place out of Burkeville, where abouts is your place?

^^^^^

At least.

I suspect I'll be gone before it is completed.....which suits me fine since I don't need or want to get to Houston any faster than I absolutely have to. ;)
Yeah that I69 cuts into a lot of land owners/farms/ranches I don't like that at all, but more and more people keep moving here.

Made it back Tuesday from a week in the Ozarks, holy crap it got cold on us.
I really enjoyed the Fall colors and the National Forest trails.

Saturday Success, I got Nacho Saturday evening! It was cloudy all day, the sun never came out and he was off schedule from hiding in the dark.
At 5:48 he came out and b-lined to the feeder, and less than 5 mins later I dropped him. I have hunted Nacho for the past 2 years.

That's because my friend up in Dirty Jesery said the big girls would follow you home from the feed store. In my county, it's illegal to visit a Walmart after getting feed from the feed stores/Co-op for that same reason.

1.5in rain, (in the last 3 days) and a little bit more forecasted this afternoon. that should give me enough soil moisture to finish grubbing/clearing the last 5 to 7 acres.

^^^^^^

Yep, some pesky ordinances some places. ;)

For instance, in most of Deep East Texas.....your 'date' can't ride in the back of the truck! (something about seat belt laws) :ROFLMAO:
