Is there a difference in the taste of a feral hog vs. one raised for Hormel? If not, look at all that bacon to be had!!!

There is a difference, wild hog/pig is leaner and has a gamy taste if not cured properly. Or one can corn feed the trapped pigs for 30 days or so to flush a lot of that gamy taste out. Sows are better than bore.

Since it's legal to hunt feral hogs year-round on private property with the landowner's permission, according to the Game and Fish Commission, and no hunting license is required, Don Smith, who farms 3,800 acres near Watson in Desha County, why don't you invite people to come and hunt your pigs ? For Free of course.
