You either ate too big of one, or did not have it prepared properly. My friends and family will take wild boar over fat farm raised any day.

There are several factors here. Size of the hog, sex of the hog and cleaning techniques. All of these play an important role in the final taste. We will take bores up to about 150lbs, but the ones bigger than that, we trap, "cut them", clip the tail for identification and release them. Then about 2-3 months later or even up to a year, we shoot them. That removes the gammie taste.

As far as cleaning, this is a very important step. There are all kinds of methods out there that work great from hanging in a freezer to allow the blood to drain off to using salt rocks and ice. And, there are several more.

We personally like hogs between 50 and150lbs.

Quit shooting the biggest one you see for eating! and like said above shoot a sow preferably a small sow! When I eat them I go for a 40-80 pounder. and when I shoot one I cut the juggler as quick as possable and let them bleed out.

Must of been a big one. I saw 2 today while hunting but couldn't get a shot off. I shot one a couple of years ago { About 70 pounds} AND IT WAS GREAT!! Taste better than venison to me. We did the back strap roast in a crock pile and me and my son ate every drop.

The sow I shot last week tasted yummy. I smoked a backstrap on Sunday. Better than any store bought tenderloin. She weighed about 100 lbs. I won't eat a boar if its big, usually sows and gelts are better table fare.
