Mr. Cutters....

A hog I shot the other day.....This one had a strong Russian(Eurasian influence)....While not the biggest..he had decent cutters......Weight about 250-275lbs....

YEP!!! If he as any ill intent when the dogs are bayin' him, he could wreck a pack with a quickness sho-nuff!

Not that you need my affirmation but I think your weight guess ain't too far off.

Nice hog! Hope you at least do a euro mount on him. Weight does seem refreshingly accurate, would be about 500 on a "reality" TV show.

I tied the head to a small tree with some baling wire a couple days ago....I went back today....the wire was broke..nothing left but a few ribs and 2 leg bones....Maybe I will find the head this winter.....There must mave been a few coyotes.....

Swapjan...not a guide gun....I have a guide gun....I actually like this one better.....It was a run of 500 guns ordered from Marlin.....It has a pistol grip stock and a really thick soft pad......Comes with low light sights too....

Best kind of hog, a dead one. Nice shot placement, no running after a cranial impact like that. Definitely not a barnyard escapee.
