Here is the one u got last September I don't have it back yet but got a picture from the taxidermist.
He measured 12.5 inches I thought it would be bigger.

Thank you. I was pretty happy when I got to him. New he had a decent set of fangs when I shot but better than I hoped for.

Love to hunt Warties ;) Have shot many and every safari without a pig or 5 is a bad one :) Have shot them With rifle and bow and they can be tuff and wery easy to kill it Depends on the shot plasment and if stressed or not I have been attacked by warthogs during hunting and searching for wounded ones .I love eating them too.My biggest is 14,3

Hey together
How would you judge my warthog? It doesn’t have long teeth but in my opinion it’s an older one with worn down teeth?
The front teeth are also worn down, but since it’s my first one I can’t compare it

Here is my best warthog. 13 1/4" longest tusk. Taken in 2016 in Zimbabwe with Jack Lott's Watson Brothers' .500 nitro double rifle. Great fun with a nice rifle but a bit over powered for the task.

Birds, warthog,
TOM, I wish I could tell you but it was well over 20 years ago and I don't remember that detail. Maybe if I were the shooter I would remember, though I do know that he used a 300 Weatherby.
What rifle do you recommend for warthogs? They seem smaller than the European species.

Age can also be determind by the size of the warts and thickness of the tusks. You will never miss spotting a good one...
You can expect 3 to 4 inches of tusk inside the gum line
