Trophy Hunting vs. Meat

Some people have concerns about taking a wild hog for the meat. However, feral hog meat is just as cook-able and edible as farm-raised hogs. The meat does taste different, but it is tasty. If cooked properly and thoroughly, wild hog meat will make a nice addition to your table. We recommend barbecue pork ourselves, but there are tons of recipes for wild hog meat. If you are not a fan of wild hog meat, we suggest you give the meat away to homeless shelters and other people who cook for people in need.

If you decide to hunt hogs for a trophy, no worries. Hog trophies were once thought of as settling for less than a deer head or a bear. However, increasingly hog trophies–especially large ones–are prized because they are difficult to hunt. Having a large hog trophy will make you the envy of lots of your hunter friends.
