A pig question ....

Is it better to harvest pigs from fall - to spring ( not during the summer)

Something to do with diseases and such???

I haven't been on the forum for quite a while, I'm still hard at it, nothing to show for it yet....lol.
I'm still seeing animals, also learning the land area finding good spots for next year... It amazes me
How much a little rain changes sooo much of the terrain....

I think that I have an opportunity to hunt on some private land ... Hints the question at hand

    Shoot them anytime you can. Just have to clean them and get them on ice faster in the summer.

    I shot one Memorial day weekend last year. It was so hot, humid and nasty the blow flies were on it before I could walk back to my truck and load it up. That was probably the best eating hog I killed all year

    Yep...I've shot, cleaned and eaten them year-round. No difference in the summer.

    DYING for me was the most HE could do. LIVING for HIM is the least I can do

    If you shoot them at dusk the flies are not a problem. Mosquitos can be. We process them year round and never have any issues.
