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.

    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
