Default No Deer Today: Consolation Prize = Pork

Went to the deer lease this morning. Got there very early and heard banging at a hog trap. A big sow was attempting to escape the old trap. She was accompanied by a 50 pound sow. Got the .22 and killed both hogs. Checked the other trap and it held a 65-75 pound boar.

That big sow was very fat.

Thought of the camera after cutting the front feet of the sow in preparation for skinning.

That is indeed a big sow! Nice job, and there's nothing wrong with free-range pork.

Nothing wrong with putting some hogs on ice.

Very much so. We had run out of pork and kept that sow for ourselves. She had a 1" layer of fat.

Did my bit for hog control too: That sow would have birthed seven pigs in a couple months.
