jdh52mail That is awesome on two levels. Frist, really glad the hams worked out and you have another option for your meat. Secondly, and maybe even more importantly is that you can tell people about this and hopefully increase peoples interest in hunting wild hogs, it is a real problem and I hear a lot of people coomplain that they dont taste that good, so if you can show them you can make hams out of them maybe more hunters will be convinced that they are worth going after.
On a somewhat related note I was talking to an exterminator up here in Wichita KS and he told me we are starting to see all sorts of new wild life that previously was not up here. Armadillos are now pretty much all over which carry leprosy or something like that and now apparently there are black widows all over the place here! He told me to never pick up a baited rodent trap (the black molded kind) because the majority of them have a black widow living inside of them. I’m not arachnophobic but forget that nonsense! Also, I am 75% sure I have a copperhead living on my pond now. It is one snack that only swims on the top and i’ve seen it up close and it sure looked like a copper head to me. Okay, I’m done rambling!
