    +1 On the size CD but I cant see any gonads.
    Velocity is thrilling,but diameter does the real killing.

    I would think somewhere 130 - 150 but as CD and 2SK say it is bloody hard to say with what is there
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Big enough to invite all your family and friends around for a beer and a nibble when hes rotating in the spit.

    Drop him a bag of apples or bury some blood n bone in camera range and see if he comes back.

    Cheers
    Pete

    if i had to chose i would say thats a sow. this pig is in very good nice the sow teands to be more sausage shape body as you would expect a boar to have more weight forward. it doesnt appear to have a heavy sheild also indicitive of a sow
