    Their bellies are too thin for bacon, they are too lean.

    There were a couple shot in Chatham-Kent a while back.

    What type of shot would it take to take them down? buck shot? BB? #2?

    Wouldn't matter. I read an article yesterday about the MNR and their so called Invasive Species plans in Ontario when dealing with these "feral pigs". It's suggested that it include a ban on incidental hunting of them.
    Not that it's going to actually stop anyone but just food for thought.

    The State of New York declared a moratorium on hunting Wild Boars except for protection of livestock and property by landowners in an effort to determine if hunting causes a population explosion by increased breeding rates. It's been an unmitigated disaster. There's Hogs everywhere tearing up the countryside. It's becoming a very hot issue politically both on the local scene and in state politics. This should be very interesting to see how it shakes out.

    people been seeing them for a week before I seen them, They did not taste good compare to a raised pig, if there is a next one I will leave in the ditch for the coyotes to chew on.

    So the big question, did the 2 you shot escape from a 'boar farm' in the area? come up from the US? or are these the invasive boars from Saskatchewan?
    I'm trying to understand if they cause such devastation why is the MNR staying tip lipped about situation

    Guess the 5 that my son and i shot in Texas failed to get that memo. The bacon we smoked off them was definitely leaner than conventional bacon but there was no mistaking it for anything other than bacon. Smoked a bunch of ham as well and it was decent too.

    I've had Wild Boar bacon and chops from a smoker and it was delicious. BIL shot a couple in Pennsylvania a few years ago that I'd defy anyone to tell the difference between wild and domestic.

    Like all wild game,the trick is to not shoot them after they've been running. It's the build up of lactic acid in the muscles that gives game meat that "gamey" taste. If you watch the Wild Boar hunts from Eastern Europe on YouTube videos,you'll notice that they use a driven hunt and shoot hogs on the run. They keep them for trophies,but,they don't eat them. Wild pork served in hunting lodges and restaurants are grown domestically.
