We have been catching late season prime boars that, up until today, looked real good. Today however we got two boars that look like they went 10 rounds with Tyson. Huge series of bite marks on their backs and sides. Both with what looked like chewed off tails. One was cut on his under belly and missing one of two important parts.

Wondering if anyone else is encountering the same things?

Yeah the last few I got were all bit up. Yesterdays boar was missing his tail and had a nasty surprise under his hide when I was skinning him. With a hefty pull down on the hide some liquid crap shot across the shed. Some hit my arm but the bulk went on the floor and the thawing out hides. Must have been some infection from battling.

We got another big boar this morning.....cold black with just a little white on him. Real pretty pelt. NOT A MARK ON HIM.....go figure.

I'm about done too. I think we'll have them all pulled Sunday into Monday. Been a long season and, truth be told, I'm tired.
