    That kid probably pumped more adrenalin, enough to kill a old man like me. He may be a addict now. He sure talked real slow, you know like the people in ALabama that see all the UFO's.. ha.. some people talk like that down hearbouts anyways.

    It's a high, after shooting the last one I was floating on the ground, I don't remember walking. I shot a deer while in that state of euphoria.. first a hog, then a deer. I was so elated.. My lovely wife, her comment, I ain't eating deer meat all winter. (I got a good wife now, that biatch can kiss where the sun will never shine)

    IO: don't begrudge them thier moment. I am sure we all had ours. I just put a 16" Avon harley tire on by hand, WHOO HOO.. My moment was here. I need disc brake pads.. you know what HD stands for don't you " Hundred dollars". Tomorrow.

    Guys: The local fab shops here have the traps already made up and on wheels just waiting for you. Price depends on how heavy and fancy you want them. Even the Nature Conservaqncy is trapping them from their land here in Pontotoc Co. The traps are metal so I guess that may be somewhat on topic.

    I dont know exactly how to aproach this, the closest thing I can try to come up with is when I tried to stop that one fella from jumping off the royal gorge bridge so here goes --- "wait -- stop --- dont do it --- youv got to much to live for"

    Hot dogs are for kids that dont know any better --- and ones you dont like for that matter
    (gotta admit that chicken has got me going --- Damn you DC, all ig got is veggies at the house)

    Skinning one of them feral hogs.. you take a rock about the size of a baseball.. roll it up in the hide, and use a "slide hammer" type action to jerk it loose. Taking a knife to help it along. I have heard you can inject air in there too. make it come loose but I have never tried.

    I was hanging on a hide with all 275lbs I had then.. now I got more wt, but got less in the way of arms and a bigger belly. Them rascals are pretty darned tough and don't come out of thier clothes easily.
    Them beans never landed on the table,"gone in 60 seconds" would have been the post title I were hungry.

    I am lazy,local butcher does the whole thing for $80 and 1/8 of the take,that includes sausage,if you want hams cured or smoked that's extra,but he does a fine product.

    Don't have to hunt them here,they find you.Local gravel pit has the best selection of hogs,me and a couple of buddies worked up a portable trap.4x4x8' angle iron frame and welded stock panel sides.Has two trailer wheels on a cam,you just back it up in a nice spot,drop it down on the ground and bait it.Large apple usually does the trick.After you get one rock the trap back up on it's wheels,take it home and feed it sweet feed for a couple weeks then it's off to the butcher.250-275lbs is common here lots of food.

    Guy down the road grew 45 acres of watermelons last year,lost 15 acres to hogs.Deer will pick a ripe melon, bash a hole in it with a hoof and eat,they only take a few.Coon's will pick a ripe melon and dig a hole in it using thier arm to carve out the innards,they only take a few.Hogs,well they don't call them hogs for no reason,they take everything,melons,vines even some dirt.

    Getting off OT and back to the original OT,,, wonder what the difference would be if you measured that porker on the gound and then measured it in the air being held up by the tractor? you know it would have to be substantual, all those vertebre, all those joints being pulled apart by all that weight with a dead pig thats not going to tighten its muscles to keep them together, I know i stretch out a fair amount while in my anti-gravity chair, and a fair amout more when i con myself into total relaxation, so much so that I have to allow plenty of time to "come back together" slowly or I could seriously hurt myself....
    That is what I suspect.This picture JC linked to tells a tale.

    I don't believe there is any trickery in this shot and from having a loader of that same model not to many years ago I can tell you the bucket is 87" side to side.87" isn't that far from 108 or 111" which ever they claim especially when you consider the one in the loader bucket isn't hanging by one leg.

    We have a lot of hogs and Boars around here,state wildlife claims the two won't cross,but I have seen black and tan ferral hogs with the classic Boar ridge of black hair down thier spines running around.

    Last one we had slaughtered the butcher showed us why it costs so much to process one over a regular domestic pig.That rascal had 1-1/2" of dense hard fat on it's shoulder flanks and neck.This fat was almost cartilige in density.I have seen hogs get run over by cars and calmly walk away,now I know why.

    I figure the measurements for the girth are right and so is the weight,but the length no.Either it's a fib,or the leg is dis-jointed from the move or they don't know how to read a tape
