    Default Wild Boar

    I hope this is the place to post this.

    This is a pic a friend of mine had on his cell. Supposedly there has been some wild boar that had escaped from a big game reserve. They have been multiplying so rappidly to the point that the NYS DEC has put a no season clause on them in hopes that hunters will help eradicate them. If left unchecked and out of control they can do a world of damage to crops and farm lands.

    This one was shot just a few miles from my home. Around 10 feet long and some 600 hundred pounds or so. They are located in the area that i frequently go trecking in. I havent come across one yet, and if I do hopefully its not nearly as big as this. I don not usually carry a gun, but that may change.

    Man, that’s a lot of ham! Did your friend butcher the hog and use it?

    That's a big pig. Not as big as the Porkulus Bill, but large nonetheless.

    If you want to eat them, get the 60-80 pound piglets, they are worth butchering. The bigger ones tend to be gamier, and have a lot more gristle, as well as being hard to skin. I know one guy here who shoots the big ones- 200 pounds plus, cuts the hide over the backbone and removes the hams, leaves everything else.

    We have tehm on our place now, feral cross with some escaped Russian Boar from a game farm 12-15 years back. Big, very hairy, nto nice to play with. Wilbur they aren't!
