I don't know, it was part of an e-mail about hunting Down Under that was sent to me last week. The Boar is of "World Record" proportions and has been submitted to Guiness to see if it's the largest ever taken.man those are as big as the "mythical" pigs they showd on mosterquest. whats the weight of those suckers
These critters we don't really touch food wise because of what they eat.Those Aussie pigs have some nice size weapons in their mouth. Great trophies. I can already smell the BBQ.
We have to test our boars for trichinosis and high radiation levels (from Chernobyl) before eating. Never shot one with either problem. Our pigs taste like gamely beef. Normally cook with a red wine sauce. I BBQ the ribs though.These critters we don't really touch food wise because of what they eat.
These pigs were taken in our Northern Territory 2 years(7000klm round trip) ago when my son and I went up there for a cull hunt on a 300,000 acre property to thin out the feral horses,donkeys,pigs and wild dog populations.
These pigs eat anything from roots and vegetation to carcasses and there's probably a good chance that they would have worms as well as tasting and smelling like s^&t.
Back around home where I live it's more mountainous and the pigs are a better eating proposition as they are mainly on a vegetarian type diet with grain,and orchards so are a better tasting proposition.
