WILD PIG RECIPES
Wild pigs can be some of the tastiest animals that you take out of the woods. And just like domestic pork, all bits of the wild pig are edible. A couple of key points to keep in mind are that the older boars can sometimes taste a little "off" and the meat isn't quite as tender.
Their diet can also play a role on how the meat smells and tastes. You could try hunting pigs in locations near agriculture fields, but they move around so much you just never know what they've been eating prior to harvesting them. The best tasting pig that I've eaten in years was harvested exiting a swamp wilderness area. I was sure that the meat would be subpar, but to my surprise it was virtually odorless and tasted great.
Before cooking and consuming wild pig meat, I recommend that everyone read this directly from the CDC that covers pretty much everything you need to know about trichinosis. There are other links located on the left side of the CDC's webpage with other valuable information on trichinosis as well.

It's common sense and it's all good stuff."
