never went always wanted too.my advice shoot to kill and make some pork chops and bacon

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I've never been hog hunting. Make sure you kill it clean, and you need to be in a stand. They travel in groups, and will attack you until you die if you mess with them.

I need a deer!

I took this off a site a few months ago for a friend of mine.
There are lots of wild boars where I deer hunt.
Everyone says the big boars are not fit to eat. Surely there has to be a way to prepare them and get rid of the rankness?! All I can find is to soak in red wine, or ice water & vinegar& lemon juice for several days. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

(Edited from longer version)
Try killing the animal by surprise. Put out feeders and shoot them at night it is legal. It is here in Texas, there are not limits on hogs and no restrictions on means used to take them. If the animal is busy eating his corn and not stressed when you poleaxe him, his meat will most likely be great. If you scare him by running him with dogs or he is on the run, I'd pass on shooting him unless you want 150 lbs of dog food.

Hope this helps!
