Yesterday mid evening was a hoot.
Hogs were thick & we cut down 10 of them between the 5 of us.
Here's the photo...

We had 30 total about 50 yards to the north of the where the photo was taken.
There were tearing up the grups from all the rain we had.
12 gauge 2 3/4" Federal Tru-Ball 1oz slugs @ 1300 fps.
We were load 5 deep in all the shotguns.
It got the heart going when the shooting started.

If your question was to me, yes we did.This one was just under 300 pounds. Much less once skinned. Far from the biggest my buddy and I ever took. That one was just over 400 pounds.


Craig what was the weight of them critters. I'm guessing 50-75 each.

Bull:
The small one went 80 the rest went between 100-150 with 1 over 200.

That boar ya took back in CA had some good cutters on him.

All we did was shot um & weight um them load um into a horse trailer.
The butcher did the rest.

Thats experiance talking there. I'd have done the same thing.

That hog is the one in the pic I showed you of the mount at Noels place. He paid for it so he kept it. The POS taxidurmist put in plastic stones and cutters mybe 3/4 the original size and kept the real ones before skipping town.

That brings up a question. I shot a feral hog about 20 yrs ago that had 2" cutters. I took them out before discarding the carcass. In about 5 years, these cutters pretty much deteriated into a powder.
Is that why the plastic ones were put in? I don't know, I'm just asking a question.:D

Some taxidermists will do that and give you the real ones back. But its all on how they preserve them. I have a sow skull in my garage that still has some meat on it. Teeth are fine and so is the skull, its about 6 years old.

If you want to keep the tuck off your hog.
Cut them out & let soak in salt water for 1 day.
Then let them dry.
Get ya a hot glue gun and fill the tuck up to the top with hot glue.

The salt will harden them some...The glue is what keeps them hole for a lifetime.

Nope. We were after them the entire 20 minute walk into the field.
We parked the truck & trailer and went walking.
