Hi,

I got a big boar in the cooler, what do I to make it taste good?

I have heard that keeping the meat in the cooler and letting the ice melt will help reduce the flavor?
Can some one explain this a little?

Thanks

Shoot them in the head. They taste fine. Shot a 200 lb boar in the head I'm still enjoying the sausage.

So it is not the meat it self? It is the blood that makes it taste bad?

First thing I do when he hits the ground, is take out my knife. I start in front of the penis sheath and take the penis sheath and the penis all the way back to the testicles, removing the penis and testicles first. Then load him in the truck and skin and process as usual. Put the meat in a cooler with plenty of ice and let it soak for a day or so with grapefruit juice. Here in Florida we us sour oranges if they are in season. Removes all the gameiness. Try the backstraps first, if he's still a little gamey grind it into sausage as they said.

I think the main thing in warm weather is to get the meat on ice quickly. That, and of course to keep it clean. I'm kind of lazy, so after skinning I just separate the shoulders and hind quarters and cut out the back straps. The buzzards and coyotes get the rest. The advantages of this are:
1) Its simpler, since you don't have to mess with gutting.
2) Its cleaner, since you don't have to mess with gutting.
3) Its faster, since, well you know . . .

Like others have said, take the back straps, hams and shoulders. You make also a slurry of ice, water and salt to get the meat cooled down really quick. I'd soak for a few days, but make sure to drain and refill with ice daily.

Yep, get them quartered and on ice pronto. Keep from getting hair, dirt etc on the meat.
I shot a 250 boar, had it on ice within 15mins. Shot him on a Saturday. Marinated loin chops with 1/2c OJ, 1/4c water 1 sprig fresh rosemary, 2-3 cloves garlic and 2 jalapenos pureed in a blender on Sunday, grilled over pecan fire on Monday.

We just eat the small females. I use the big boars for coyote bait.

wash it with dish soap very well before you put the knife to it... if not then theres nothing you can do
