Getting rid of the bristles is a bit of a mission...I too have killed and cleaned many pigs, wild and domestic. In fact, I was in on slaughtering hogs at my grandfather's farm when I was around 10 years old. One of the first things you do, after shooting a domestic pig with a .22 was to cut inside the Achilles tendon on the back legs and run a sturdy stick thru the slit on both legs. This was what you used to hoist the hog up so you could cut its throat and bleed it out. Then you gut it. I remember the first time I was big enough to help hoist it up. I don't know who was more proud, me or my grandfather. We would do 2 hogs a year.
No, I am not angry or disgusted. I am just wondering if I can get invited to the chitlin dinner that always follows the slaughter. I haven't had fresh chitlins (chitterlings) since I was a teenager. They stink like hell when you cook them, but they are absolutely delicious!
We used the chitlins for sausage casing. Cleaning them is rough the stink will stick to you. My teacher sent me to the library when I was about ten because I stunk so bad from cleaning chitlins over the week end. No amount of soap and water helps.
Watched Buck McNeely do the same on his hunting show. I hope the meat is harvested . Feral hog is some fine eating . I agree nothing get wasted in nature. Scavengers need to eat too. From maggots to vultures to larger animals like bears get to eat.What a fuken amateur..
Come on down to Texas and we'll show you how to kill pigs.

Feral hogs is my favorite animal to hunt. Like Texas, Florida has been overrun with them. I use to hunt them with dogs ,these days just stalk them on my own. It will get the blood fired up when you get close and personal with one in a thicket. I use a single shot 12 ga. using slugs. I hope to get a new 30.30 rifle soon but there hard to get at this time.
