Trust me you really don't.
The amount of damage they can do to row cropping such as soybeans and grains is utterly devastating.
A herd of 40 hogs can do more damage in 24 hours than a drunk on a D6 out for a joy ride.
About all they are good for is getting farmers to invite people out to slaughter them
Well that and they really are great eating if you kill them and handle them right but both must be right. Let a big boar run a while and you might as well leave him where you kill him.
Kill them clean and quick and you have gourmet meat ready for the taking, but you have to get them gutted, washed, and cooled down at warp speed or they go rancid in a matter of just a few hours in warm weather.
