Next time, try this: get an old piece of metal roofing, maybe 12 feet or so in length. Whatever you can handle or is available. Use that to herd him across the pasture. Don't crowd him. You're going to have to be plenty patient. It probably would help to have him a little hungry and have the food where you want him to end up.
I saw a 16 year old boy use this method to separate out about 5 sows from all their pigs and get them back into pens to be bred back. I was amazed at how well it worked. As long as they weren't crowded, they respected that piece of metal more than I would have suspected.
