Well...... cause I can weld. It’s faster, stronger, not as cheap, but lasts a hell of a lot longer.

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


I'm going to pass on the fried boar's nads.....


Back home when castrating pigs I believe they referred to them as prairie oysters. Cheers NC

Yep, can't transport live wild pigs in Ga.

They've really become a nuisance. I should target them more, I usually let them slide while I'm deer hunting because I don't want to mess up the hunt..and in turkey season I have my shotgun on me with turkey loads....however we have figured out that a turkey load to the rib cage at 30 yards will knock the air out of them and you can walk up and finish them off. We've got one in the 500lb range been hanging around for a few years. Putting any corn out for deer is just a waste of money so we stopped. Walked up on him on a rabbit hunt end of season. Thought someone had dumped a black couch out. I've also got a poland china colored boar in the 350 range hangin around, we had a fun meet on a turkey hunt, he finally got to rubbin a tree about 100 yards from me through the woods, could just see the top of the tree shaking something crazy.

We just drag the boars off now. We like the sows around 100-125, seems to be the best eating in our experience.

I went to South Carolina to hog hunt with some good friends for the seventh year in a row. We got two sows that I pulled the loins out of. First time ever keeping any meat. A dry rub for 24 hours, seared in a skillet then baked to 150 internal temp. I was shocked at how good it was. I will be filling my cooler every time I go down now.
