Okay, so being a noob at Feral Hog hunting, and hunting in general, I have to ask: dressing out the animal, if you catch the intestines or bladder, do you throw out the meat that the spillage touches?

Now I do an insane amount of research online, almost obsessive. What I come to see is that people are divided on the issue. After watching a ton of YouTube videos, I have seen people be delicate around the bladder and intestines, or Ive seen people knick the bladder, but wash out the cavity. From what I've gathered, washing out the cavity seems to be fine, even though it is generally agreed on not to knick out the bladder or intestines. The advice to not let urine or feces hit the meat hails from the golden oldie days when you couldn't get animals on ice or rinse them very well. Given the state of the meat industry in stores today, I highly doubt that we all don't get some extra BS from our store bought meat. So what is the consensus? Do your best but if poop happens, hose it out?

I go on my first Hog hunt with my woman in April. Looking forward to it! flag

Really you do not have to gut a hog
You can clean a hog take backstraps and quarters where he lays without getting dirt or blood on the meat
Lay hog on belly spread legs out so hog supports himself cut a horizontal line down to front shoulder
Then cut vertical to past rear hips then cut horizontal across the hips then take and filet left side
Cut down ribs so the square flap hangs over the side of pig thanks out the left backstrap then do the same on right side ,then fold flap back up lay pig on side skin the hind quarter (helps if someone holds leg up)
Either cut knee with knife or saw then cut around hip to ball joint quarter comes right off put in cooler
Then do front quarter the same,lay hog over and repeat on other side
And your done
I have deboning quarters at home, however next pig I'm just going to debone quarters into a ziplock bag
In the field then take home and grind

98% of my hog hunting been on public land. Learned years ago, hog down, easier ta just cut back strap, quarters, roll over repeat. No gutting, unless ya want heart, liver or tenderloins. Alot easier, less ta mess with, specialy way back in woods. Best Wishes up for your service. flag

Get mine at the grocery store. They leave Tenderloins on ribs, least how i was taught. One of the advantages of lease, guided, or invite hunts ya can drive up ta hog & not back pack. cheers Your military experience will give ya edge on back packing them ribs out on public land, just lave tender loins on inside of ribs. flag

All I need is the practice! I seen this video where this dude didn't gut the pig, but separated the ribs off the spine with hatchets. Pretty ingenious. Started with the back straps, took the quarters, the uses the the hatchets to cut off the ribs. 'Merica flag

Whin ya few miles back wondering about the woods on solo hunt at dark-thirty & drop two good size hogs. Ya think light, went back ta house, called friend, & took military back pack. Friends help. cheers But a lot easier back packing. Got a lighter back pack bye adidas mesh type, carry it with. Used ta work at grochery store, cutting meat.

cheers Lance explains it pretty good. On Public land keep the holves on till get ta house, case stopped by GW. It alot easier if ya not ablr ta drive up to it. Lease or at house ya can drive up to it, were can cool down & take your time. flag
