Yep, eat em all the time... I usally just quarter them and get the straps and tenderloins out of them just like a deer. Marinate in ice water for about 24 hours then marinate in whatever you feel like. I usally give away the bigger ones. If a sow is over about 150 or a boar over 100lbs ill give them away. Anything smaller than that ill keep and eat. They get tougher and gameyier the bigger they are. The ice water kinda help with the gamey taste. I like to fry the straps and loins and smoke or bake the quarters with onions peppers and tatters...

I like to get the fat thats in between the sin and the meat also. Adds a good flavor when you are smokin or baken it. Good to mix with deer meat and make sasauge with too... Juts be sure to kook it DONE!!!

x2 on the ice, just cover the hog meat with ice, drain and refill multiple times, really helps!! :thumbsup:

bigger the pig the more rank it gets... I know all hogs stink but the bigger they are the worse it gets... i learned the hard way i will never shoot one that big again unless its going to be mounted even then I would have to think twice

Nah we didnt the picture makes it look alot bigger than it was. I wasnt the best tasting thing but it was decent, I'm just praying Hogs dont make permanent residence here. From what im reading and hear though it looks like they already have. :mad:
