How big was he?  Males reach sexual maturity at 3-4 years, but rarely get breeding opportunities due to competition from bigger older boars.  They grow rapidly to around 5, but unlike sows boars will continue to grow bigger throughout their dominant years.  He could be anywhere from 6-14 I would estimate.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Couple more guesses and I'll post the age. He also was 1 1/2 inches over the Boone & Crockett min. score.
