For eating, I am split down the middle- Love my pork, but also Love deer.
Like to hog hunt because they are more plentiful. Because I live so far away from a place to hog hunt, I make the best of whatever I can do at the time. I can deer hunt here in Missouri (very short seasons though), but hogs I have to travel. Right now I have ZERO pork in the freezer and a fair amount of deer (burger, roasts, ground for jerky,and summer sausage). Generally only go after the <100 pounder hogs to eat. Will shoot a large hog as a target of opportunity, but prefer the smaller to eat.

If you are near SE Texas, I would be more than willing to pick them up for you. I would do the dirty work too. Actually you could be just about anywhere with the exception of far west Texas and I know someone that would pick it up.

There's a guy posting in the Deer Hunting section that seems to have a hog problem. He's a lot closer to you than I am.

You can't really compare the two. I dearly love a thick cut pork chop when its cooked right,and sometimes, nothing else will do. Then, other days, back strap from a big fat doe on the grill, or battered and deep fried is the ticket. It's like asking whats better, crab or shrimp.........yeah to both, depends on the mood!

Venison actually has more cholesterol than pork per serving. The saturated fat is what is the advantage to venison. I don't know how that fairs when talking feral hog, though.

Venison = healthy meat, and I've felt some remorse for ever deer I've shot.

Feral Hog = I hope to be their version of smallpox, and stack em up like cord wood. I'll feed more buzzards and coyotes than I will myself.

Now if Hunters for the Hungry didn't charge, I'd load every one of them up.

Have you only just tried whitetail? Some of the exotic deer out there will taste way better than any whitetail or hog. Still I will pick a 8 year old whitetail buck over a 100 lb sow any day of the week.

I was given 3 60-70 lb pigs from a good friend. They were trapped and her husband fed the pigs out for a month on straight corn. I have had the chops and the spicy breakfast sausage is as good as I have ever eaten. Had some both days this weekend for breakfast.

For a long time, I would have said I preferred to eat wild pig over deer. But, I've had a lot of pig the last 7 years, and not much venison, and now they are about equal. Chicken fry either one with cream gravy, and they are delicious. I've had an adult doe that I thought tasted like creosote smells, and a 6 year old buck that was just fine. Old sows and boars have eaten well, but have also had to feed parts of a little 80-pound boar to the dogs because it was so strong. For me, it comes down to the individual animal.

I like them about the same. Wild pork is a lot healthier than store bought pork. I'll get some beef suet and mix it with either and you would not know which one was deer sausage or pork sausage.
