As far as I know, the feral pig population has since been decimated after several years of legal hunting that started a few years ago. I know I've not seen them or signs of them (and they are supposedly in and around areas I've hunted).My understanding is there are a number of them in the Gloucester County area. At one time the Deptford area was a major pig farming location leading to a number of escaped hogs that continue to multiply to this day.
Pigs are what they eat. A grain fed pig is best. If you get one that's lived in the wild it's entire life that's what it will taste like. JGripp shot a half breed last year in Pa. It was fed grain from a feeder on the property but also ate in the woods. Best dang Porckchops I ever had.How do the wild ones taste roasted compare to domestic ??
I heard ever since they ripped up White Oaks Golf Course pretty good several years back, they got hunted down severely. I don't think the golf course has had any problems in a while since then. I think those hogs that were in White Oaks WMA were either killed off or they moved off to less pressured areas. Moral of the story? Don't piss off golfersI've heard there are some in White Oak Branch WMA but I'm not familiar with the area.
