Hunting, Fishing and Trapping / Re: WILD HOGS......(NOT THE MOVIE)

I question that statement.......... ....of course! :cheers:   All hogs, domestic or wild, will eat all sorts of vile crap that would puke a dog off a gut wagon, but it doesn't affect the edibility of the finished product.....IF it is FULLY cooked!  Game meats like bear and wild hogs are prime examples of those that need thorough cooking to be safe from the effects of trichinella spiralis.  I may be unaware of the newer findings, but I haven't heard of any of them yet. :shrug:

Why? :shrug:

  I watched a documentary a few months ago about the damage that wild boars and feral hogs are causing in the southern states, also the Danger to people, pets, and farm animals in rural areas,  some of the wild boars are mating with different breeds of feral hogs, the offspring can reach up to 800 pounds.
  Anyhow a few of the hunters were being interviewed,  one was asked if they were going to hold a pig roast to celebrate the hunt,  he said no way, those things are full of parasites and disease, then they went on to explain that the lifestyle and diet that the wild pigs are living are rendering the meat iffy at best,

I was on a Submarine where we ran out of coffee a couple of days before returning to port and had to get by on instant.  When we tied up, the Supply Officers replacement was waiting on the pier.

I have been very pleased with my Tandy purchases over the years.  My next big purchase from them will most likely be a Tipman sewing machine.

This was my Lab, given to me by an old friend that could not keep her any more, anytime I went out for a hike she was right there, never left my side unless there were range cows to chase.

Having spent part of my Naval career as reactor operator, I know how safety conscious the military is, not so sure about the private sector.  The real draw back to fission plants, is disposing of the spent fuel rods.  Short of firing them into the sun or dropping them at a plate boundary, sooner or later the residue can come back to haunt us.   

I have been out of the business, since 1972 so my information is out of date, I do know that they had an incident at one of the storage facilities over in Washington this year.

I found my buddy off the Dallas divide outside of Ridgeway Co. That was fifteen years ago. She had been abused. Great dog and better friend.
