The meat has most potential for "gamey" taste if killed immediately at a dog catch due to adrenaline (all) and testosterone (boars) released to increase energy and aggression to win the race or fight.

If all we do is keep them penned for a few days with feed and water and go out to shoot it as it rests, this mitigates the negative affects...

If castrated, we (most like me) use penicillin so won't kill until fully healed and long off the anti-biotics at soonest... a barr hog (barrow) will really fatten up given enuff time and food...

Most of us don't have space or money to feed 'em out very often... Boars are often barred and turned loose so they fatten up for free in hopes of gettin' the dogs back on him in a year or so...
