How is the taste affected?
I was having a discussion earlier with an old buddy of mind about how hog tastes. He is under the firm belief that you have to drop a hog first shot or the meat will taste nasty because of the adrenalin. I have heard this dozens of times over the years. However, I have eaten hog that was dropped on the first shot as well as ones that ran off and died. I did not notice much of a difference. I think it has a lot to do with the area the hog lived in and what it fed on. I also think it has a lot to do with how the meat is prepared. What do you all think? Oh, and what about Deer? Apply the same reasoning to them and tell me what you think about that as well.
