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. :eek:

That looks like one MEAN set of teeth though. I definitely wouldn't want that hungry sucker bearing down on me with evil intentions...

yeah i beleive it. i was just sayin that on monsterquest people didnt beleive in wild boar that could get to be so huge, one farmer said that he had to get his tractor to move one that he killed, and it was to large to put in his scoop on the tractor.

I like these photoshopped pictures. Have killed a lot of boars and none looked like that. Last weekend I talked with a guy who killed a 400 pound boar that "charged" him. Asked to see the picture. It was a 225 pounder at best.

Here's a couple of good old Aussie grunters. Funny thing is some of our grunters have the long snouts like the European/Asiatic pigs and the majority don't so I don't know if it's a throwback thing or a bit of cross breeding with domestics but anyways it's the best fun you can have with your clothes on chasing them.

The rifles used on them were my 30/06AI 165gn GameKings and CMC Mountaineer in .270 130gn GameKings.

Those Aussie pigs have some nice size weapons in their mouth. Great trophies. I can already smell the BBQ.
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.

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.
