Cinnamon Boar
« on: July 03, 2019, 12:32:53 AM »
Went in the bush today for a little hunt, I was carrying my .30 Mini-Carbine loaded with the Baracuda pellet.









I did some sneaking around for a couple hours without any luck, at 4 PM I decided to go sit in my Blind, there's a sow that comes in consistently but I've decided I will keep her to lure in some big boars  ;D she came in, also a young boar came in, seen him a couple times and I'm gonna leave him alone for now.

The young boar left and shortly after an other sow with a small one in tow showed up and behind them this solid boar, now my trigger finger was tickling  ;D ;D

the 4 porkers where doing all kinds of gyrations so lining up a shot took some time, in quick moving animals I prefer the frontal shot vs the temple, I feel you get that little extra time.

so as soon the boar did give me the shot I took it, dropped, few lazy kiks and it was over the .30 Baracuda did it's job as well as it can be done.

Nice pig and that carbine is one sweet looking gun, must make trekking through the brush a wee bit easier.

From a practical standpoint. How much do you think it weighs and how much actual meat do you get?

That .30 Mini-Carbine with folding stock is da bomb :) love it

That boar was probably a good -/+ 130 pounds ?!? you basically get 30% of the actual weight in meat

Great shot there Manny !!! That mini Carbine is way cool and I see in your signature you're getting 70fpe from it, that's definitely enough energy to get the job done in short order.

I absolutely love this little gun, I get exactly 7 ( one Mag ) shots on POI at 35 yards.

I'm gonna put a smaller/lighter scope on it to make it even better :)

Couple more questions regarding the actual pig.

I'm asking as I have never been involved with any wild pig and I'm curious.  I think I have this correct and that you like to stay in the 130# range with the hogs.  Is this because it is easier to get the lesser amount of meat out, the younger pig are more tender and taste better?  Last question, do you butcher in the field or just dress and haul it out?

I really appreciate you going to all the work of sharing the information.  It takes a lot of time to do it, so again, thanks.

Stick to smaller Pigs 60-80 Pounds much better.

Yeah, I butcher in the field I take a couple pillow cases with me to take the meat out,   there's a few videos out there describing the no gutting technique.

Ok first off...heckuva shot, bruddah Manny! And that gun...she's a beauty!

I'll agree with Manny on the 60-80lb pigs...those are nice. I can also chime in that about the 20-50lb variety...they are quite tender and almost zero game smell.

In fact, I had a chance to deep fry a 20lb female. Crispy skin, juicy meat, no game smell. Oh man the ribs were pure deliciousness!

That is good to know, didn't know about the gamey aspect.  The only kind of pig we get is farm raised and those are generally huge when processed.

One of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten was cooked up in the ground over coals, it was three little pigs donated by a friend that had a farm.  It was a birthday party for a good friend who had recently gotten out of the service in 75.  Talk about mouth watering good, those little pigs were simply delicious. I ate two hind quarters that were probably the size of a turkey drumstick.

That game smell is usually very light on domestic pigs. Wild ones, though...you can pick it up as small as 40 lbs, depending if they're in heat or ready to rut.
