Use the meat just as i would on regular "farm-pigs". The meat has got much lower % of fat though.
Will be getting the testresults from a lab regarding "tricinosis?-worms" tomorrow so no tasting of the meat before that...
Hawg weighed 130kg.

Ah, I just noticed you are in Sweden. That explains the test for worms. I don't think they bother testing in the U.S..

At least you don't have to worry about radioactive pigs like they do in Germany. :lol: http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2010/08/04/128975828/nearly-25-years-after-chernobyl-disaster-germany-beset-by-radioactive-boars

Looks like you placed the shot perfectly. Good shooting ! ! !

Hammered this badger at 00:30 yesterday.

Did the same with this boar(90kg) at 01:10 this morning.
Both animals reacted like struck by lightning when hit by THE boolit 8-) .

That's probably because of your excellent marksmanship. 8-)

Thanks for the hunting pics. I didn't even know you had badgers. :)

Was invited to a combined Moose and Roedeer-hunt and managed to bag this doe.
Shot the doe at an appr distance of 35yards. The doe was "driven" HARD by my black dog.

My fellow hunters were amazed of the "little cowboy-rifle and its boolits" leathality and especially the extreme amount of blood-spray thru the exitwound and the 10feet spray from the entrance towards me :shock: .

Didnt see any moose though.

Got this nice fallow-stag today.
He was "driven" hard by my black dog but one of those superdeadly boolits did the trick 8-) .

I recently tuned my Marlin to function with longer coal so i`ll probably have to order a new mold from Dan shortly :roll: ...

That is a nice stag ! ! ! :o

You must be eating well these days, with all the game your Marlin has harvested.

Danny.k, I meant to ask when you posted the boar picture.... Are the boars in Sweden true wild boars, wild boars imported for hunting, or feral domestic pigs? I ask because I didn't think the Eurasian wild boar naturally ranged into Sweden/Norway/Finland.

Very nearly all wild pigs in the US are (descended from) feral domestic stock. People do import and breed true wild boars ("Russian boars" as they call them) for hunting and a few of those escape into the wild, but they cross readily with feral pigs so true wild lines don't last long. Here in central Texas most people think that ones as big as yours are too tough and gamey to eat. However, I don't know how many people have actually tried eating one that size versus how many people just repeat what somebody else has told them. We have so many of them (two or three million) that it's not worth testing whether big ones are worth eating. If you want to eat them, you just shoot one or two that run a hundred pounds or so; bigger ones are left for the scavengers.

Dan, I just found out that Montana doesn't have any wild hogs. Consider yourself lucky and hope that your wildlife management people go to a lot of trouble to keep them out. You can't even believe the amount of damage they can do.
