We are starting to have hog problems up in Alberta now from european pigs escapeing from private farms. The government has put a $50 to $100 bounty on them depending where you are.
To all you hog hunters who read this, we don't have hogs in MT but I would love to shoot a hog sometime with someone who wants to do a trade hunt. We could talk about it if you emailed flyfisher363 and sent to yahoo(I'm not sure if you can post an email here).
Born in 67(last day, by the way) and I do know what your "talking about" Bo.
Nice pigs, but ya' left out "where" on 8 of them.
I don't know where these measurements are coming from. I'm originaly from Northern FL and we measured from the gum to the tip of the tusk, with 3 inches being a good size tusk. Even if they're measuring the cutter and the whetter, these measurements seem inflated!
1965 wow Bo! your not old you just got more stories then us all. I myself never felt the rush of hunting wild boars but if I ever get a chance you know I wont pass on it.& I know I'm missing out on a good time.
Poor picture! WE have had so many phoney hogs out of the Southeast in the last few years, that I hesitate to believe this one with NO PICTURES OF THE TUSKS!
I'm game, where can I find one of those. I'll be like Paladin, "Have Gun, Will Travel." Those of you born after 1965, probably have no clue what I'm talking about unless that program plays on cable tv.
Sorry, I am old or at least my kids say so.
The tusks of this feral hog are almost incredible, with a total SCI score of 41 12/16-inches. This number one SCI ranked bow-kill pig was taken in 1999, and had a left tusk measuring 17 ½-inches, a right side at 18 ½-inches!
