Yep, that ain't no wild hog. That's a domestic meat pig. Not sure on weight,but it'll render PLENTY of pork!

That is a domestic pig that must have gotten out. It is definitely not wild yet. Easiest indicator are the ears. True feral hogs do not have any flappiness in their ears... HOWEVER, it will be feral soon lol...

Hog is easily 200 lb... I'd say just above 250.

He makes my 80lb pits look small.

Shoot that sucker!!
