In defense of wild meat’s place at the table

Recommended Posts

Yup. There's a massive overpopulation of deer across much of North America as well, and having more venison end up on tables would be a Very Good Thing by most measures.

We harvested a feral pig in 2023; the getting is fairly easy, the sanitary safe processing can be fairly challenging and pricy.  We will be eating that animal for another 12 months.  1 300lb pig for a small household is a steady food source with good processing and storage.   My sous vide and Instant pot and meat grinder got a really good workout making now and future meals out of the sow.   The feral pig problem is actually quite horrifying for native environments and agriculture.
