    Whereas in Europe they been around probably more than a thousand years.
    Although they do some damage to farms once in a while, they seem to manage them fairly well.
    The best smoked suasage I ever had was made from wildboar and they are good to cook just about every way.
    You've obviously never been to Germany and seen the damage lol. I've hunted and shot them over there. They are a huge problem, not unlike Texas!

    They are invasive there too, coming over from Russia according to locals.

    I am not sure where they were coming from in the first place.
    I have been to Hungary, they have a pretty large population of wildboars
    and yes they do damage, but like I said, they manage it reasonably well.

    Springer: it’s weird but both your pigs seem to have eaten sticks the hard way. How odd...
    If we’re not supposed to eat animals, how come they’re made out of meat?

    Well, not to Germany, maybe they do more damage there.
    However I know hunters come from all over Europe and overseas to hunt them in Hungary, because they have some huge boars.

    I arrowed a Russian Wild Boar about (250 lbs) live weight at 20 yards with a 80 lb bow shooting 425 gr arrows at about 325 fps and expandable broadheads - it went thru the lungs and just came out the far side - he ran down the trail a ways - stopped then pulled that arrow out of himself with his mouth -then took off again - I tracked him to his Den in a big old log and dirt pile about 500 yards away ! I dispatched him with a head shot from a 22 . His hide was about 3/8 " thick ! The meat was good but a Bit strong - Dark Meat - Was a Fun Time - RJ

    Yes I've heard the same.
    The real difference over there is that there is only brief periods when they aren't hunted. Hunters on reviers are required to harvest them due to crop damage. It isn't optional, and the revier holders can be fined large amounts if they aren't doing their 'job'.
    It's not like a 'recreational' hunt that we have here.
    The 2 most effective methods are sitting in a 'hochsitz' during a full moon with your uber large objective lensed Zeiss.
    Or driven hunts with dogs pushing them in a coordinated
    fashion towards hunters in stands.
    When I leave there it's always, 'take some boars with you'!

    Yes those are the 2 methods hunting them, but I don't know what the season or how long.
    I do know local people who belong to any of the hunting clubs, can hunt them all year round.
    Man I would love to have some wildboar meat!

    Hey wildcatter, Where in the Cariboo are you from. I am headed to Lac La Hache in may or June. I could try to bring a sample if theres some left by then. The meat is very lean, i was hoping it would have had more fat on it. I mixed it with my Elk from this fall . PM me closer to this time period .
    Im going to to try and brine the Hams and cook them whole.
