Has anyone had any experiences with wild boar or other sausage made from
game? I found it to have a mealy consistency and overpowering taste,
although it was not at all greasy.

I have had lots of sausage made from deer, and it has usually been very
good. It's often mixed with pork to increase the fat content. When I
lived in the midwest, jalapeno-cheese deer sausage was very popular,
and it was delicious. Of course, all of the venison where I lived was
corn-fed, and not at all gamey in flavor.

Marinading "gamey" meat in milk for a couple of hours or over night
removes the gamey flavour. (don't think it would help sausagese though)

He castrates it does he? How does he get it to stand still?

Pigs are what they eat. That's why we only hunt and eat wildboar from
certain areas of our island (Maui). The pigs from the east end of the
island where they feed on mangos and guavas are very good eating, these
pigs also have the blood of domestic breeds gone feral, so they have a
higher fat content. All this equals great wild game without the gamely
taste. In the forests above my home the wildboars feed in ferns and
shrubbery which gives them a very gamey almost inedible taste. I'd
rather drive acouple hours to harvest good tasting game. For wildgame
sausage, adding belly pork from the butcher will increase the fat
content in the otherwise extremely lean wildgame meat, making the
sausage more tender, less mealy in consistancy.
