    Well, it wasn't your normal sneak up and kill 'em hunt. We actually trapped this big boy. I didn't wanna kill him in the trap, so we let him out and whacked him when he ran out. Regardless, he weighed 200 on the coop scales. Nice boar hog. He had pretty good tusks, so we're gonna try to put his carcass somewhere that we can recover the skull and bleach it out. We've had that trap out for 2 weeks, and this is the first hog we've caught. maybe it's a sign of things to come!!!

    I agree that the head/tusks would make a nice trophy. Boy am I jealous...I have got the itch to go hog hunting up here, but they are few and far between, mostly in the western part of WI.

    one thing that I have heard is to put the head in a bag of some sort like for fruit or burlap and put it in the lake, with deer we just tie off an antler and the fish and microbes go nuts for it, I think it works better than just hanging it cause that just dries the meat on the bone, it only takes a week or two in the water too!

    Don't have wild pigs in Nebraska, but they were all over Ft. Sill, Oklahoma when we were down there for training with the Army. They even ran a few Army basic trainees up some trees on the land navigation ranges.

    You could boil it, then pic off all the cooked meat, then set it in hydrogen peroxide for 24 hours and then in the sun for 48 hours and it will come out nice and shiney. Thats how I do it anyway.
