Mmmm! [drool]

I don't know why people are complaining about the price of meat, when these are running around, are very tasty, and as an invasive species are free for the taking.

Just be sure it’s well done before you eat it!

I don't know how wild boar tastes, but if they're in a national park, you're not allowed to hunt it. :wink:

It's pretty much like pork, but much more porkier. Firmer, less fatty. Fantastic for sausage and charcuterie, but not great for things like Rilette and Terrines. And the bacon or panchetta is amazing!

You can't hunt in a national park, but if Walter J. Palmer taught me anything, its that you can sit outside the park waiting.

We actually used to go to the Lac St. Anne area, far to the West. They are also big pests throughout Saskatchewan. But never, ever hunt them without a side arm. They are VERY aggressive.

Hard to kill as well. Zombie pigs are a thing. Had one a couple of weeks ago. The thing just wouldn't drop. and yeah, you don't want to get to close to a wild boar. Even a domestic boar.

.303 or 30/30 through the lungs usually works, but the sweet spot seems remarkable small, when you can get the lungs and heart at the same time.

I’d love to cook some. I do hope you understand why it needs to be well cooked. Perhaps Doc can tell us Iif cured pork is less dangerous than uncured porker?

I have a 60lb draw recurve bow with carbon fibre arrows that have titanium tips. They'll never hear it coming, but they'll feel it before they drop :mrgreen:

Yes, it is. That is the point of curing meat, to give bacteria an undesirable place to breed. Salting, smoking, and drying meat will make it safer. The other problem is parasites. Which is why we never used the intestine as sausage casing. We always went with traditional pork casings, or collagen casings.

Nope. I used to hunt deer with my bow, and was very successful. But like Scape wrote above, zombie boars are a thing, and you can't re-nock an arrow fast enough to avoid getting gored by those tusks. Plus if the first arrow didn't kill it, another will just piss it off more.

I always had a .44 loaded with one FMJ and 5 frangable rounds on my hip when we were out for wild boar. Long guns have a limit on the number of rounds you can legally have ready, and for a 30/30 that is 3 plus one in the chamber. 6 rounds in a wheel gun is better protection, because if you piss one boar off it's likely the rest will come for you too.
