We went at 11.00 and were in position by 12.00am, at around 2.00 am we heard them and my mate shot this small sow for the freezer.....

Beauty, what calibre did he use, did it drop on the spot or run a little, is that right that you skin them not shave them like a domestic pig. :hmm:

We have to use a .308 as thats the only way the police would give us them on our ticket, he used a 150 grain soft point, we have shot bigger ones than this and they dont go that far once the wind is gone out of them.

Great pictures there Apollo, thanks for that, thought there must be a reason that wild boar was skinned not scalded and now i know.

Would you age the carcass now or just butcher it and freeze.

Regards MT.

The one in the pics being skinned had been in the chiller for a week before it was done , we had a mate of ours butcher the first couple as they were gifts to land owners, theses others we will do for ourselves

i never have liked the taste of pork to be honest. its the last thing on the menu i want to bother with.. but if wild pig is better than domestic then i might have a change of heart.. will have it to try it out and see for myself..

Great stuff Apollo, did you shoot it in Wales? Certainly a different looking animal to ours.
