Keg... No Mexicans in the area?? You give them the meat, the least they can do is give you a couple a dozen.

Thats a big one, looks like the same one in the picture.
The Feral Hog reproduces very fast, and most of the shoats that are born survive, a young female hog can reproduce at 6 months of age.
They are a species that need to be hunted hard just to keep the population in check.
The state I live in allows hunting for them year around, and they dont care if you keep the meat or not.
I myself keep the meat, if its a good hog, but if its a smelly boar, I let the vermon have at it. The Boys and I cought a nice young Sow yesterday with hunting dogs, and are having it turned into pork stake and sausage.
I will post a picture of the boys holding the hog, by the back legs when I get them downloaded.
We put the hog down with a Polish Tokerev TT 33 7.62x25 Pistol.

Seeing that hog,it looks like
it's fit for cold weather which
means it's not too many years
away from NH.
Question: (not to steal the OP's thread)
Do you guys have to worry bout worms
and such in these feral pigs?

You hog guys make me wish we had pigs here in CO. Were stuck with only elk, moose, big horn sheep, pronghorn, giant blackies, and record mulies! But seriously hog hunting sounds like a real blast and my mosin with 180 gr soft points would be the perfect medicine. Luckily my grandfather has them all over his property in Missouri. Might have to try for a tag sometime!

Yeah you need more than luck if you want to hunt sheep here. There's a very small lottery

Pig killing is terribly addictive, specially a large group. Shoot one and mayhem ensues. Pigs take off running in every possible direction. Pigs you didn't even know were there. Big pigs, little pigs, tiny pigs medium pigs......when I see a large group, i can hardly contain the giggles of anticipation.
