Wild Hog Rule Of Thumb

With the out of control population in wild hogs, many folks are shooting and or trapping them for food. Here's a rule of thumb if you plan to eat the pigs you harvest. If the air temp is above 50 degrees, you have no more than 30 minutes to get the pig on ice before it can start going bad. This meat can spoil faster than any other wild game. If a pig dies in a trap and you do not know how long it's been there, don't try and eat it. While wild hog is good and a great way to save money, but it’s not worth taking the chance of getting sick.
