How do the guys that buy them get around the ""no selling of wild game meat" rule? I'm assuming of course that feral hogs fall into that category as well
Basically you and I (ordinary folks) can keep hogs for up to a week, assuming we have the facilities, with certain conditions. However, they may be transferred to a registered holding facility, which will aggregate them until they get enough to transfer to a slaughterhouse. There, the hogs are butchered and processed. As you mention however, it's illegal to sell the meat. To sell hogs, they must be alive when they are delivered to the final processing plant.
