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

Of the dozens I’ve killed and or quartered up I’ve only came across one rank hog. I didn’t think much of it when I was quartering it. I had it processed into sausage and when we went to cook it it stunk the house up. That was a learning experience for sure

It’s kinda hard to find processors willing to fool with them. I think one local to me got Brucellosis,or Pseudorabies while processing a hog last year & it about did him in. No more hog processing after that experience. About the only decent tasting part on them are the back straps to me.Makes decent boneless pork chops..and they are easy to get to. Hogs = Apocolypse food to us...I’ll eat one if We start gettin real hungry & all the squirrels,coons,and fish are gone😝
