Default Shot a hog with no testicles...

Shot a hog this evening, it wasnít a female...but he didnít have any testicles. He still had his mojo, that was obvious. I looked for scars...nothing. He had to have been cut, but I donít know anyone around me who castrates them. Ever seen it, can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks!

Some castrates the board when they catch them, but usually mark them by cutting the tail off or an ear.

It is possible that he just didnít developed nuts though.

If a hog is cut young you might not see a scar.

As stated above, there will usually be a cut ear or two along with the cut nut sack!

☝🏼LOL! We went on a duck hunt a few years back and one of the guides had some pig dogs. Talked a few of my buddies into going. They paid good money to go catch some pigs. They went all night in the same wheat field and finally the guide's son had to "go find a dog". And would you know it a pig came out in the wheat field about 10 minutes later. The dogs did their thing and long story short the pig was castered and according to them seemed drugged.

Pretty sure they had a pig pinned up and the sonlet him out.

needless to say that's all the money they will ever get from us.

The boar’s sow probably has them in her purse. Very common with some species.

Did you clean it? My dad shot one a couple minutes f eeeks ago and we thought the same. When we cleaned it they were there just way smaller than normal and not sticking out back like usual. Not sure what was up with him.

My grandfather would cut their nuts when we caught them. He would clip an ear and if we ever caught that hog again we would kill it. And yes....they are tastier for sure.

When they are cut we call em Bar hogs.
Could be farm pig got out and went feral. Watch a show where they let a domesticated hog out and it didn't take but a few weeks from the go feral. The amount of change in a short time was amazing.

We call them Bar hogs too. Usually a male that was caught in a trap at a young (ish) age. Castrated, sometimes clip their tail or get an ear notch. Then turned back into the wild. They'll get bigger that way. And a lot of people say the meat tastes better

I knew a hog dogger down around Lufkin area that caught em in the early summer and cut them then go back and kill them in cold weather. That's the way Noel got all their pork meat. He road a mule named Buck and had some good cur dogs.

Popped one late yesterday evening that had a bobbed tail and at first I thought no testes but on closer examination he was intact

Not sure how he ended up with half a tail

You sir, have hit the jackpot! Skin carefully, precisely quarter the hog and barbque slowly and thoroughly. Serve with sides and beverage of your choice, enjoy!!!!

Every boar we catch with dogs or in a trap we cut and turn back loose. They can’t reproduce and make for better meat later on. Two small incisions you will most likely never find.

Yes sir, I seen that in cabelas earlier today. I felt sorry for the old fool as she was a hollering at him in the store. Fairly certain his cods are in the bottom of a cabelas sack in the trunk of his crown Vic.

Bar hog, hunting ranches do that because they will grow bigger cutters after they are castrated.

Killed this 145# boar in east Texas last October.
He didn't have any testicles and showed no scars of being cut.

Actually called a Barrow and I have cut many of them for show pigs. You won't see a scar and if you do see one it will be about 1/2 inch on each side if they are done when it's young.

Beat me to it...

Used a single edged razor blade, then graduated to one of those razor blade knives... 2 little slits and a dab of Vaseline in the pockets, quick snip of the tail and turn 'em loose...

A good Fall with lots of acorns in the bottom, and we'd go huntin' specifically for big hogs with no tail! Some real good eatin' and usually fat enough to get huge middlin's for bacon...

A good smoke house, some cheese cloth sacks, a little Morton's sugar cure, no a LOT of Morton's, and you had some real good bacon and hams pretty quick!

Back when the feral hog population was a lot lower we had some guys buy some domestic hogs to stock their ranch with. They ended up shooting them all because they just stayed around camp and tore stuff up.
