How heavy can Wild Hogs, Feral Pigs and Russian Boars and Wild Pigs Grow?

Wild boar or wild pig (Sus scrofa) is a species of the pig genus Sus, part of the biological family Suidae. The species includes many subspecies.

Weights depend on genetic background and food availability. Generally, the wild Big Boars can reach larger weights than females but this is not a hard and fast rule. Average weights vary but run 200 pounds for adult males and 175 pounds for adult females. A 300 pound feral hog is a large wild pig. The unusually large weights of 500-Plus pounds that you hear about occasionally reported in the media are very rare.
