I've killed a few large boars that stunk to high heaven and were just fine. I have friends who have tried eating them from Morgan Co. and said they are HORRIBLE. Luckily for me I've never cooked or eaten one that is rank.
Yrs ago when I started the job I got now there was a guy that done paid hog hunts and we was working around his land and I mentioned something about shooting a hog for meat. After a little while he said I’ll do you a better deal if you’ll come back when you get off. When I went back that afternoon he gave me two paper bags full of already made sausage links. I took a pack out and called a buddy to come eat with me. I was cooking them on the stove and almost had them done when he showed up and he said when he turned in the driveway all he could smell was a hog pen. I guess I was use to the smell while I was cooking them. It I walked out side for a min then went back in and it stunk to High heaven. Needless to say someone wasted some money on them sausage cause all of it went in the trash
