Have any of you hunted Hog Heaven?

Post by DaveM » Sat Jul 06, 2013 3:40 pm

We hunted Hog Heaven 2 weeks ago shooting 7 hogs total. We left the hogs there and Bob and company said they were going to take them to a processor in Lehigh Acres. Well,......all numbers to Hog Heaven have been disconnected. And, we don't know where our meat went.

Anyone know of a meat processor in/near Lehigh that may have our hogs? We called Arnold's in Labelle and he doesn't have them.

This sucks. We had such a good time

Shooting targets doesn't get your adrenaline pumping... plus you can't fill a cup full of warm target blood and drink it after you shoot it.

Hasn't it become standard procedure for companies going out of business to collect as much revenue as possible, then disconnect their phones and disappear without a trace?

We've heard from Bob. He promises to meet up with us this week. I've got my fingers crossed.

why in the Blue f/;k would any civilized human being do that ?
not only is it f#;.,/g nasty, it's also potentially unhealthy.

Pork is known to carry some diseases such as pork tapeworm and trichinosis, thus uncooked or undercooked pork can be dangerous to consume.

Undercooked or untreated pork may harbour pathogens, or can be recontaminated after cooking if left exposed for a long period of time. In one instance, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) detected Listeria monocytogenes in 460 lbs of Polidori brand fully cooked pork sausage crumbles, although no one was made ill from consumption of the product. The FSIS has previously stated Listeria and other microorganisms will be "destroyed by proper handling and thorough cooking to an internal temperature of 160 °F (71 °C)" and that other microorganisms, such as E. coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus aureus can be found in inadequately cooked pork, poultry, and other meats.The FSIS, a part of the USDA, currently recommends cooking ground pork to 160 °F (71 °C) and whole cuts to 145 °F (63 °C) followed by a 3-minute rest.

The pig is the carrier of various helminths, such as roundworms, pinworms, hookworms, etc. One of the most common is Taenia solium, a type of tapeworm. Tapeworms may transplant to the intestines of humans when they consume undercooked meat from pigs or other animals.

Although not a common cause of illness, Yersinia enterocolitica – which causes gastroenteritis – is present in various foods, but is most frequently caused by eating uncooked or undercooked pork and can grow in refrigerated conditions. The bacteria can be killed by heat. Nearly all outbreaks in the US have been traced to pork.

Pork may be the reservoir responsible for sporadic, locally acquired cases of acute hepatitis E (HEV) reported in regions with relatively mild climates. It has been found to transmit between swine and humans.

Trichinosis, also called trichinellosis, or trichiniasis, is a parasitic disease caused by eating raw or undercooked pork infected with the larvae of a species of roundworm Trichinella spiralis, commonly called the trichina worm. Infection was once very common, but is now rare in the developed world. From 2002 to 2007, an annual average of 11 cases per year were reported in the United States; the majority were from consuming wild game or the source was unknown. The number of cases has decreased because of legislation prohibiting the feeding of raw meat garbage to hogs, increased commercial and home freezing of pork, and the public awareness of the danger of eating raw or undercooked pork or wild game products.

Parish,
I personally know Kmags and am willing to bet that remark he made about drinking the blood of the animal after shooting it was meant in jest.
Although now that I think about it, his skin pigment runs towards the pale side, and I've never witnessed him actually eating real food. :-k
Regards,
Jon

I'll eat raw meat. I'll eat blood sausage. I'll eat head cheese. I'll eat heart and liver. But, I'll pass when it comes to a cup of blood. brff.

Bob seems like a stand up guy.

I would hope he will make good on whatever it is and the phone problems are just some odd issue.

I will say, it was always a pain to try to get I touch with him though.

Let us know if you hear anything else.
