You keep the meat on ice, draining the water off twice a day and adding more ice. Do this until water comes out clear, not bloody. Cut up, cook, and enjoy!

Couldn't agree more. Shoot them leave them for natures undertakers. That is unless they are young ones then take every precaution. I have AI equipment and have the gloves that go to the arm pit. They work pretty good don't ya know.

Good info, I always make fun of guys that wear latex gloves instead of getting their hands bloody, I guess I should start wearing them myself.

We use to vaccinate for it years back because it was here. Through vet and ag studies it is redundant to vaccinate anymore because of the non existence of it anymore. I raise pigs I might know of any diseases out there. Now there is a diseases going around right now transmitted from the midwest but it only effects younger piglets and is not contractible by humans.

If it is a bacteria virus that might be possible as there are many bacteria diseases in all animals. Nothing to quit hunting over. As always sanitation is always key no matter what. And if it takes a bacteria scare to use sanitation practices thats ignorance to the max. But to assume it is brucellosis is an uneducated and ignorant thing to say.

I never touch a hog without gloves, and only touch it to hook up a rope and drag it in the brush...

Use gloves, clean the meat and cook to proper temp and you'll be fine. No reason to miss out on some delish food!!

Do you ever get the feeling you're being watched? Because if you do, I'll stop doing it.

One more thing regarding the latex gloves. If they are the type found in supermarkets- really thin and if there are splinters of bone you could still get cut. I use a heavy pair of rubberized gloves. I guess I'm a sissy cause I also pack an old white shirt which I put on backwards. Ticks show up great on the white fabric and it helps me get rid of a lot of them while gutting.
Years ago hunter stews were common- in any event cook that thing real good.

Mike, it's a big problem in the veterinary profession too. Probably half of the old-timer veterinarians contracted brucellosis from palpating cattle or working with pigs. A common name for Brucellosis is "Undulant Fever". The infected vets were saddled with it for life. They'd get sick, take a course of tetracycline, and go about their business. Then a few months later, they'd relapse; then it's back in bed with antibiotics for a couple weeks.

It's a tough life living with brucellosis....almost like living with malaria.

The Tetracycline 500 mil 4 times a day almost killed me too! Sick, sick, sick! The more hogs in an area the more likely the desease. It was and is rare. So rare that the CDC contacted me to try and locate the property where I got infected! Another one to be aware of is leptospirosis (rabbit fever). Same way to get infected. Real bad sickness also.

cheers Good info. Several years ago, got inta a knife fight with a hog thatt sent me ta Hospital. scratch It dont sound very macho the way it really happened, more muyloco Hunting way back on OSBWMA learned real quick. Back packing easeiest way ta get hogs out. Usualy solo hunts. Cut hide along back, take backtrap, then remove hide around quarters, roll over do same. No gutting. This inciddence happened dow behind house whin hog came inta feeder. It was big hog, dragged ta were bow stand is with vechical. Its a small ditch. Knife slipped, stabbed above knee. Had a good medic with me who doctored it. Was gonna let stitch. Advice was go get shot & stitches. Yagh, bout as bright as burt out light bulb. rofl The ellamint didnt connect, but knife did. So far ben Blessed. still grill & chill if get a hog. Good info on here. Stay Safe flag

Most cases are not diagnosed, low grade fever, couple nights of bed sweats, won't effect everyone the same. Can kill in right circumstances.

Hey blood on the ground just read your post on contacting that disease. Congrats for surviving it. I contacted the west nile meningitis disease several years ago and thought I was going to die too. I don't care to handle any hogs after I kill them because I damn sure don't want that disease also. I still have side affects from the west nile. The doctors did a spinal tap on me and it didn't seal up. I got home and after a couple of days of blacking out when I stood up after getting out of bed I figured I was still sick. I could see if I held my chin to my chest but couldn't see when I lifted my head. I thought I had a fever and my theory on fevers that wont go away is to sweat it out. I jogged two miles and when I stopped to walk I couldnt see were I was going unless I held my chin down. The jogging moved my brain around enough to keep it from settling down in my cranium. I had low spinal fluid in my cranium and my brain was not floating properly. I did not know at the time what the hell was happening. I went to the doctor and they did a blood patch and I could see again. They pulled blood out of my arm and pushed it into my back where it was leaking. I could of died and I caused long term brain damage by jogging with no spinal fluid in my head. To this day my ears ring constantly and when there is a low pressure weather system I get tired and weak. Sometimes when I jog it sounds like two steel balls tapping together everytime my feet hit the ground. Im grumpy a lot and sometimes just plain mean. Ive got what the football players get x 10 CTE. If you think this sounds crazy, you ought to try explain it to someone in person. They will look at me like I am crazy, And I am a little thanks to the skeeters. Oh yah I forgot to tell you when I get tired I get a lost feeling. Try that in the woods in the dark. meningitis aint no joke it will try to kill you and I am a survivor. I feel your pain. nuts


I hike/hunt at great distances. I hold my balz up with my left hand the last mile or two back to prevent the painful friction from stopping me in my tracks. Need customized underwear.
