    That spotted hog is a beast. Did he have cutters? Looks like they were broken off on one side at least.

    Those are great hogs...I can smell them from here! I like the way you sacrificed your clean magazine for the photo shoot, nice.

    Dang! Mighty vicious looking hogs there. I am intimidated just looking at pictures of them. A charge from one of those big boys would have me screaming like a girl.

    No cutters on the spotted one. They are supposed to go get the scull on the other for me.

    what is the "girth only" formula? I taped from tip of nose to the butt on a nice boar I dropped this week. I have the girth measurement documented. I am buying a camp scale to make this easier for the next one. I will post pictures when I get that formula so I can estimate weight.

    Quick reference estimate of a hog's weight.

    Formula used to estimate:

    Heart girth is measured in inches using a cloth measuring tape. The tape is placed directly behind the front legs,
    wrapped snugly around the heart girth, and read directly behind the shoulders.

    pig weight = 10.1709 x Heart girth (inches) minus 205.7492.

    Found to be 95% accurate to within 10 lbs

    Using the above formula, we get the following:

    40 inch = 200 pounds
    42 inch = 220 pounds
    43 inch = 230 pounds
    44 inch = 240 pounds
    45 inch = 250 pounds
    -------------------------------
    46 inch = 260 pounds
    47 inch = 270 pounds
    48 inch = 280 pounds
    49 inch = 290 pounds
    -----------------------------
    50 inch = 300 pounds
    51 inch = 310 pounds

    55 inch needed to get around 350 pounds

    You do need to pull your tape tight against the hog also, correct?

    Yes tight as possible or you will end up with the wrong weight.

    Shot this hog west of Archer City January 17th with Hornady 120SSTs out of an *** built 16" upper. Shot was at 67 yards and he didn't flinch after I hit him. I will post the measurement of the girth picture next. sorry about the double post. 46" behind the front legs. I measured him for length incorrectly so I won't post that measurement.
