Anyone heard of/been to this place in Bainbridge, PA.?
It is on a 150 acre island in the Susquehanna River, and the owner releases pigs and rams on this island and charges $375 (any size hog) to go there and harvest one.
He also offers transport to an Amish butcher who charges around $200 to butcher the pig into assorted cuts (hams, steaks, sausage, bacon, etc.) and it is ready for pickup in a couple of weeks.
Reviews suggest little sport involved, as the pigs are pretty much farm animals and domestic, but they all say the yielded pork is superior to anything they have had from a store.
There are vids on You Tube, just search Mohr's Widowmaker Island Hunt and there are several, and they appear rather lame, as far as hunting goes.
Now, I know it is not hunting and there is no challenge unless you set limits on yourself, but as far as a wisely purchased harvest, is it just that, considering the cost?
In other words, is it more affordable than buying a 300 lb. pig and having it custom cut and freezer wrapped?
