:iagree: I thought the same when I saw the pictures.
Well, don't know what "quick" is when it comes to skinning hog hide, but total time from dropping the hog, field dressing and taking it to the processor was about 15 hours. It was cool the night I left her out (low 30s), and I also put ice bags in the carcass just to be sure. The processor didn't call back or anything, so I'm assuming all is well...

Re: First Hog Dropped...

Thanks to all for the kind words! Real curious to see how wild hog tastes compared to farm raised. Everyone I know says it's awesome, so can't wait!

First Hog Dropped...

Managed to drop my first-ever hog right as I was getting down from the blind. I was trying to get some late season doe last month and thought I got skunked for the day, and out come the hogs. It was like the sounder of 20 or so just magically appeared from nowhere and started running right towards the feeder. I had to reload my .270, aim, and fire pretty quickly...it's amazing how fast these big ol' hogs move! She dressed out to 123 pounds, and I'm waiting on chorizo, pan sausage, snack sticks and salami...woo hoo!
