    Processing Wild Hog



    Processing Wild Hog

    Post by Squirrel on Mon Aug 26, 2013 12:52 pm

    We're planning a trip to Texas to hunt wild hog.  We process our own meat usually but this is out first time hog hunting.  I've heard you have to be careful processing it on your own.  Does anybody know any of the tricks to processing wild hog?

    Hey Squirrel!
    What part of Texas will you be visiting and will you be using a guide?

    Some say boars are better off left laying but I think it is all how you prepare them!

    I feel the best thing to do is to process them ASAP. Get them quartered up and in ice water quickly. We usually let them set in ice water for up to a week. Changing the water out as needed and keeping the ice fresh! This will draw out all of the blood and the "gamey" taste!
    This is a bit less important in my opinion if you are going to make sausage! The spices cover any "wild" flavors but really helps the back straps and lions!
    I like making pork burger also! Just ground pork! You can use it in everything ground beef works for and usually you can't tell any difference!

    Good luck on the hunt and take plenty of photos!! Very Happy
