    Fresh wild hog and Mudbug's a redneck (graphic images)

    Got a phone call Tuesday morning from Mudbugs dad telling us he had 2 hogs in the trap, a 20lb one and a 60lb one. We decide that we are going to get the bigger one for the freezer and smaller one to give to our cousin. After we get over there the 60lb one is more around 130 and the 20lb one is more around 30-35. No big deal, more meat. I shoot the larger one with the 22 and after its taken care of what does Mudbug do? Crawls in the trap with a feed sack and catches this other little mean bastard! After that it made a 30 minute ride in the truck with her holding the thing in a feed sack and every 5 minutes or so this thing is exploding to life with everything it has. Mudbugs setting in the seat holding it like "It's all good, keep driving i got his ass".
    Turns out Mudbug is quite the hog skinner as well. Her first time out and she did better than most people Ive ever seen. I've done it a few times in the past and she's already faster than me at it. We did learn this time around to use razor blades rather than sharp knives, they just work so so much better on the hide. After all this Mudbug took the tenderloin and turned it into dinner while the rest is setting on ice. We left the smaller one whole for Easter dinner.

    Boar hide is tough stuff - you can cut through the fat layer with a sharp knife to skin it, but to get the initial hide cut takes a razor and a fair bit of pressure

    Give my regards to "The Bug" - she'll be out there on the TW running them down with a lasso given half a chance .....

    A trap is the only way to go for me. Some people use dogs but an angry hog thats large enough doesnt have any issue killing or maming one. With the traps, you just bait and wait. The initial cost of a trap and some .22 bullets is likley cheaper than one trip to the vet with a injured dog.

    Look at these if you hunt big game or just like cool innovative knives:

    Havalon Piranta Replaceable Blade Skinning Knives

    Pricey but the best.

    The blades are basically heavy heavy duty razor blades that are replaceable. Very sturdy and provides lazer cutting ability with a high confidence you're not going to filet your hand. The blades last a long time.

    I think that we are going to have to get a few of those, if you've cleaned a few hogs, that item is not overpriced at all lol. Where has this been all my life?

    talk about one wild ride. that mean little bastard damn near ripped his nose off. he was bouncing off everything. and this big one was a monster. lomax had to pick it up in baby steps. he went from the ground to the bike stand, to the table, to the straps. goodness it was heavy. all in all, a super fun day though!
