My GA wild hog
« on: May 09, 2017, 10:20:26 AM »
I had a friend take me hog hunting with him in GA this past March. We had a great 3 day weekend and I was able to put down a nice eating size sow. The old savage 223 dropped her in her tracks.

Well done Snort!  I've got the same questions as Yari - keep hearing all sorts of different stories about the quality of the meat.  Talked to a co-worker last week who brought back a bunch of meat from a hog hunt in Texas - he indicated it was fine, although you have to be careful to keep it from drying out since it is relatively lean.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I made some home made GAIL deer Salomi, [Ga hog, Il deer] and kept the loin for grilling. Salomi was awesome and the loin was good.

Congrats on the hog...hogs are great to eat other than a large Bore hog...meat is awful just throw it away as it's very strong.

I use a snack stick mix from LEM. I went 1/3 pork and 2/3 deer. It is really good.

thx. most of the pre-mix i've tried is very salty. LEM isn't?
