      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Where to buy wild boar locally?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can buy a whole live wild boar locally? I know MN isn't known to hold wild boars yet, but I'm sure someone out there knows someone who sells them live. I'd like to butcher it myself.

Thanks.

Wild Boar are an invasive/exotic so you will doubtfully be able to legally find one alive for sale, or at least the Russian one that can live in our climate. You may be able to find the meat but I wouldn't know where.

My advice is to ask the Asian community. I've been to a few boat roasts around the St. Cloud area, I know they ordered from the local Asian Market.

No matter where you find it, I think it will have to be a 'special order' situation.

Good Luck

Back in 2010 there were some posts about hunting boar in some preserve in MN. You might look up that topic or post there. Otherwise you might have to take a trip out of state. I couldn't find any place advertising boar hunts in MN.

What was the place Big and Rich or whatever their names are shot the bear? Got in trouble for it.

(importing wild boar is against law in mn according to article in strib.)

Original poster could get a couple of great big coolers, and drive to Texas. Google says 14 hours to Dallas, 17 to Austin.

Looks like there is good hunting not too far from Dallas.

Shoot a couple, gut them out, pack in coolers with ice. Drive back.

Might be somewhere closer, for that matter.

That is always an option. But, I'd like to buy one or two locally first to see if it's something I'd be interested in. Some say they taste like beef/pork combined. I'd like to find out what they taste like too and go from there.

10 seconds of google magic came back with some options for just buying the meat.

Money Creek Buffalo Ranch in Houston MN sell the meat. You could give them a call and see if you could purchase an entire animal and butcher it yourself. It doesn't look like its something they do regularily but you may be able to work something out for the right price.

I saw that too. I did email them several months back with no response. I don't think they are interested in doing that.

I might just make the trip to missouri,oklahoma, texas, or somewhere down south. cool

I know years ago there was a farmer in anoka that sold it, or he claims that they were what they were. I ate it and didnt notice a difference. I cant remember how to get to his farm or his number so cant help you out there.

My uncle has a farm in OK and everytime he drives back to mn for a family gathering he brings up one or two wild pigs with him. The meat has a bit more flavor to it but its nothing special.

I've had wild boar pork roast and bacon that was shot by a friend in Texas. I thought it was good but I did not see much difference between it and locally raised domestic pork.

    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...
