Wild pigs in Australia are a hit and miss affair eating wise.
Anything from our back country especially during Summer/drought is a no no as they'll eat anything like carcasses and God knows what else and get worms.
Pigs from our mountain areas are a bit better but are better eating during Winter when there's plenty of feed around and they get into the vegetation like bulbs,windfall apples etc.
Personally won't touch them(eating wise) unless I have to but have eaten some from around here which ate ok.
