Well, if I didn’t have an actual crane to lift that thing, I would hook a chain to it, drag it over to the nearest really big oak tree with my truck and then use a block and tackle to hoist it up so we could gut it. Easiest thing to do would be to quarter it right there on the spot, probably laying on one of those big blue plastic tarps you get at Wallyworld. Use the truck’s winch to roll him over…
After that, bag the good bits, chuck them in the truck bed, take the tusks for a trophy and leave the rest for the buzzards and crows…

Wow is that a hog? or a bear? It is the size of a bear.May 28, 2014 at 3:11 am #15099
I would have to be really hungry to eat anything off a hog that big. Its got to have strong flavor.May 28, 2014 at 4:55 am #15101
And bigger yet
These are a combination of domestic and feral bloodlines, according to the DNA testing.
Eating something that big, no thanks.
Gonna be more than a little rank.
I’ll stick with those that weigh just a couple hundred pounds. Something that big, I’m thinking of a frontloader to dig a hole big enough to roll it into and put a couple of bags of quicklime on top.
Post-SHTF, I’ll be calling the neighbors to come get what they want, free.May 28, 2014 at 11:24 am #15105
The 100 to 150 lbs are the ones to eat after that the meat is not as good.May 28, 2014 at 12:20 pm #15107
Whirli you could put up a secondary perimeter fence and keep him as a guard pig post shtf. Just imagine the look on an intruders face when he sees the sign on the fence”Beware of Pig.” Then he jumps the fence and proceeds only to meet Hogzilla. I can see the total shock and confusion hahaha.May 28, 2014 at 12:45 pm #15108
You need really good fences to keep an animal like that from breaking through. 5 strands of barbed wire wont do it.May 28, 2014 at 8:50 pm #15121
I don’t think there’s a whole lot of fences that hog even noticed.May 29, 2014 at 12:42 am #15126
One thing that really works sounds silly: Hog oiler! Those ******* have sensitive skin. One of the reasons you will find “rubbings” on telephone/electricity poles. Some rubbings I have around here are about 5 ft tall.
Take some old, used cooking oil. Go to where you want the hogs to go. Pour that oil on a bunch of trees in that area. Keeps this up and the hogs will not come back to your place.
