Am I the only one who was hoping for a guy snorkeling in for the kill, bursting forth from under water, and stabbing the pig with a dive knife?

That definitely would be really cool! Might be possible too if you hide out in a pond during the summer and wait for them to their wallows but the water would be pretty dirty. I appreciate ya'll for watching!

One of the best things about hogs is that there is really no restriction on creativity when it comes to hunting them. My son started his hunting on hogs at age 7 with dogs and a spear, so I have a sweet spot for them. He's 13 now and we just finished up a red stag hunt in Patagonia.

Do you must also examined the hog meat by a veterinary on Trichina and Becquerells in your country ?

Thanks! That's a very cool picture!

Thankfully most of our hogs are pretty clean and free of diseases. We try to avoid shooting them in the warm months to avoid the meat spoiling before we can get it on ice. We smell the meat when we cut them open and we have yet to ever found one that is uneatable. We also make mainly sausage with them and also grind the hogs up with deer meat.

Foxi,

Wild meat doesn't have to be checked by a vet in the USA. Were responsible for ourselves regarding the quality of the meat.

Old breading boars can have meat that is almost inedible. Not because it is bad, just because it is nasty.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
