[Return to Topics]

This was about 5 years ago. The first one Jacob got while he and his dad were hunting.

At the risk of sounding really dumb...
what did you do with the poor thing then?
I just can't imagine killing an animal for sport.

No, not for sport. Every one they've gotten has gone into the freezer. There's a picture in the Photo Gallery of Steve cooking a wild pork roast. They love it. Those are the only things that Steve hunts. He doesn't even deer hunt anymore. Now, he likes to watch them!

Because wild hogs were had become a nuisance at my home,we were forced to kill one. Of course believing it is wrong to waste an animal, it was butchered and processed into sausage and chops, Would appreicate any info. on soaking meat before cooking or care of any future kills. thank you

Does Steve marinate his wild pork in anything before cooking?
I use Mojo, the secert is killing them in cool weather and shooting them while they are standing still, if you run them them the meat is yuck,
If we catch them with dogs, we pen them up and then feed them for a couple of weeks with corn before butchering them.

He has marinated it before, and it's better that way, he says. I don't know what he used for that. Cold weather is the best, like you say, especially here. One time, he got one that was pretty large, and it was about 4 hours before he could get it to the house. He had to cross a running creek with it, and all kinds of mud in the bottoms. He was so worn out by the time he got it here that he got a neighbor to help work on it.
There's a man down the road that sets traps and pens them and feeds them like you said. I think he sells them though.

It does look tasty, they are not tough to eat?

When it's cooking, it smells just like 'store bought' pork roast. I have only tasted a little piece, but it was good, and tender too.

I know what you mean. After Jacob was older, Steve left him at one place, up a tree in a stand, and he went to another place. Steve likes to hunt on the ground, but wanted Jacob safely sitting in the tree stand. Anyway, Steve was watching a couple of hogs, but hadn't got them in his site yet when suddenly he hears a shot, then hears Jacob yell, "Yeesssssss!!" The hunt was over.
