290# hog taken in Leakey, TX

That's big but there are bigger. Those things are all over East Texas, just tearing the place up. I killed three last year in my yard after they turned it into a plowed field. All of mine were in the 100# to 150# range.

The biggest one that I ever saw must have been close to 400#. He was huge! He was about 150 yards away on the other side of the lake, standing side on in broad daylight and I missed him, clear missed him. I can only say that seeing something that big, I must have got the hog equivalent of "buck fever". I did get close enough to scare the crap out of him. He took off like a demented bulldozer never to be seen again.
