    2 Ga hogs killed with my new rifle i built. Black one dressed @ 209 other one 219. 2nd one had cutters longer than my middle finger. Anyone know how to estimate live weight? Butcher told me add 25% to dress weight???

    Very satisfying when you get such really nice trophies with a weapon you built yourself. Congratulations. I don't know what the formula would be on a hog to determine weight after you field dress it. The best way to estimate weight without a scale is with a tape measure BEFORE you gut it. You can look up the thread on it on this forum, but the cliff notes are measure the hog's circumference directly behind the front legs and pull the tape very tightly. An easy way to remember the scale is 45" = 250 lbs, every inch up or down = 10 lbs. I.E. 46" = 260 lbs. I keep a plastic coated sewing tape measure in my hunting gear and check the weight right after I determine that it is really dead. It's kind of rude when they try to get up as you are trying to wrap a tape measure around their ticklish parts.
