I was watching a documentary the other day saying there is quite the problem of wild boar in the south, and they are concerned a Russian variety is taking over. They are supposed to be meaner and more agressive than standard wild pigs. Well first, if you live in Russia wouldn't you be terminally pissed? I guess it's like the Killer Bee thing. Just put a bounty on the damn things and we'll be done with it.

Wild hogs

I think the solution is a combination of a totally open season plus a bounty. Boars are tough & can be very aggressive. We used to hunt them in the river bottoms. There weren't all that many where I was raised, but around west central Louisiana & east Texas, where my cousin lived, there were a good many. They're certainly edible (they're a hog, after all), but I don't think they're as good as farm raised hogs. Probably depends a lot on their diet. When I was a kid, we raised hogs for market, & the rule was that you took them to the slaughterhouse when they were about 200 pounds. The bigger ones aren't as good to eat, and those that run wild aren't either They're tougher, too. Some people say the wild ones taste "gamey", but I think that's bullshit.
