Are they good to eat though?
I've heard that the wild boars taste horrible.
We trapped 1 3 or 4 years ago that the game warden estimated 400 plus. He was 32 inches at the shoulder and almost 5 foot long. We try not to touch anywhere with our hands where we have touched the hide. We skinned him and gutted him then put him in ice for 5 days. Adding ice and draining out the bloody water daily. We usually keep the loins whole and grind the rest. Sometimes we will smoke the hams. Each1 of his nuts was big as a softball. We kept those. We parboiled them about 15 or 20 minutes. Skinned the tough outer skin off. Sliced them thin dredged in egg and seasoned flour then pan fried. It was the best pork we had in a while. We usually catch6-15 a year. Sometimes they will have a bad musky smell just dont touch the meat when you have touched the hide. Ice them down and you're good to go
