In the last year Ferrel pigs have moved into the area that me and my buddies hunt with appartently---a vengence. I even got a shot at a 200+ lb boar last fall but unfortunatly I missed. With the season open year round on these buggers and a hunting trip coming up next month there's some things I'd like to find out.
How doe's wild pig compare in taste and texture to domestic pork. I'm assuming it will be leaner than domestic as most game meat is lean due to it not being fed all the extra stuff like it would get in a lot.
Are there any any special concerns with this meat. The concervation dept. here says to bury the offal and to use latex or nitril gloves when handling this meat due to possible dieases that they can carry ie psuedorabies, bursilosis and tricunea.
I'd like to be fully armed with all info before getting into this so if any of you folks have experience with these critters all info will be greatly appreciated.
