Wild Boar Hunting for the Meat

If you are hunting wild boar in Texas for their meat flavor, hunt for a young wild boar.  The older wild boar will have a more gamy taste.  A benefit of hunting for the younger wild boar is their inexperience.  They will expose themselves to hunters more often than older, more experienced wild hogs.  After a young wild hog (aka: ‘weaner’ or ‘shote’) is weaned from its mother, it will run within a group of adolescent wild hogs.  These young wild hogs are more active and more likely to expose themselves to danger.  A hog that weighs less than 100 pounds will be tender and have a milder flavored meat.  The true reward of a taking young wild boar is realized at the dinner table.  A great method of cooking young wild boar meat from the rump is to cut it up into strips and chicken fry.
