The most popular way way to hunt wild boar is with dogs. In fact,
several breeds of dogs have been recognized and selected for their
ability to train and "bay" or catch hogs. The USDA will
not allow dog-hunted boar to be processed for food. All of the
wild boar that The Healthy Buffalo sells is trapped in the wild
on Texas ranches in a humane manner that in most cases in monitored
by infared, motion activated cameras. The most popular bait for
traps is soured corn or raspberry flavored gelatin.
These wild boar are not fed or medicated and contain no growth
promoting hormones that are common in commercial pork. Each animal
is tested by USDA veterinarians for trichinosis, brucellosis and
pseudo-rabies. We maintain that our wild boar meat is completely
natural and has the flavor that pork once had before factory farming
turned it into a tasteless white meat.
Wild boar meat should never be prepared past medium rare. Your
guests may incorrectly associate wild boar with pork and expect
it to be served well done. This results in dry, tough product.
If you guests request the wild boar well done, recommend the fish!
