Re: And This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef . . .

Yes, the Thing That May Not Be Named featured in my thoughts....hence the bow. In some ways, much better even than the TTMNBN. Silent, portable and less alarming, make your own consumables from nearly universally obtainable materials, more likely to be final, and less alarming for the pig that is coming to dinner.

Re: And This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef . . .

I grew up on a farm and raised hogs. ALWAYS keep your wits about you around animals. One of my friends was 200+ pounds and in good condition when a boar knocked him down and was working on having his leg for lunch when his boys heard the yelling and came to his rescue. It took two healthy teenage boys with the separation panels to get him out of the pen. Nasty wounds on his leg took surgery and he limped the rest of his life.

Keep the dinghy moving and kind of do a drive by, throwing the treats away from you. Those pigs are kind of pushy, and look really huge when they swim right up to the dink. They will bump you, and try to climb in. Man, I never saw anyone dressed like that lady, going to pig beach.

Re: And This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef . . .

seals,or sea dogs as they are known locally, are right up there with hogs-mentally & viciously. Not bad eating though....

Is this acceptable cruiser's behaviour? Is this ,similar to the feeding of the Iguanas at Allan's Cay, part of a true Bahamas experience?

Nothing dumber than teasing wild animals into attacking.

Seems the pigs would be better in the oven or the Barbie. Are these vermin protected? My cousins did a circumnavigation a few years ago and the captain & mate managed to harvest a goat somewhere similar. They said it was excellent. Having taken a couple of feral pigs at lake Okeechobee a few years ago I can confirm this was the best way to enjoy the local pigs.

Ouch!

And the thought of being eaten alive by a hog! YUCK!
If I was that farmer, I would make sure that boar became bacon ASAP.

Re: And This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef . . .

Feral pigs are destructive animals, nature's bull dozers. Had a constant battle with them on our coffee farm. They'd tear up the ground tossing up rocks looking for grubs or whatever in the soil. Played havoc with the mower. They'd usually run away when I'd confront them and throw stones at them. Once had a big hunker that I tried that with and it decided to run towards than away. Luckily the land rover was close, set a new personal best running to jump in the truck to get away.

Re: And This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef . . .

Feral hogs... Texas has more than any other state and they are such a nuisance that when on private property with the owner's permission they can be "harvested" without a hunting license. And they taste good, too without all those preservatives. Best pork I ever had. If hogs are that much of a nuisance in other places, maybe the local constabulary will look the other way while you collect dinner. So far, I haven't had the nerve to push my luck.

It's not just me then?

We were there a couple of months ago and I argued unsuccessfully with Lesley that: "Once their feet leave the sand, they're fair game for the Hawaiian Sling or a 120lb trolling line."

Treble hook in a piece of bread, trolling for porkers.

If you do that be sure to post on the Large Mouth Bass web site the weight. Those guys are always saying "Man! That one is a HAWG!"

Well, they count your ammo when you check in with firearms in the Bahamas. So, why am I short a couple of rounds? Oh....I shot one of those hogs over there off Big Majors Spot for a little BBQ get together on the beach with some other cruisers. Any problems with that?
