How do you dispose of the hogs after they have been shot. I'm talking about the ones you are not
planning on eating.

I dump the ones I kill in the same spot everytime. I picked the spot two reasons. I can sit on a ridge overlooking the spot to shoot coyotes feeding on the hogs, and it's a long way from my blinds/feeders.

I chain them to the tractor and drag them towards the highway. We call it the bone yard. My family doesn't frequent that part of the property. Buzzards clean it up pretty quick. Smells pretty bad locking the gate sometimes though.

Different places we do different things. Out west we drag them off to the range area and shoot the coyotes that come to eat them. Others we just drag them off away from the feeders.

At my place, we have a designated dump area for carcasses. On the properties I hunt, some require the carcasses to be moved to specific locations and others just have me let them lay. In one case, I text the landowner the location and he uses the tractor to haul them somewhere. On 3 other places, I slice open the carcasses so that they get consumed faster by the buzzards and coyotes.

I'm in Central Texas and those hogs we don't eat are taken to a designated "bone yard." Like others here, we then hunt the bone yard on a regular basis, and score quite regularly on the varmints/vermin and even an occasional feral hog that come in to feast on their dearly departed brethren.

Leave them right where they fall unless it is under my feeder.

Drag them off and the buzzards and coyotes will take care of them in a day or two

Depends upon how full the freezer is at the moment, whether the neighbor wants a shoulder or hindquarter, and how I feel at the moment. banana barf

Either to the bone pile or drag them off away from the feeder. Our rancher doesn't care as long as we don't dump them in his coastal field.

Don't shoot what we don't intend to eat or have someone lined up to pick up. I clean them immediately or if trapped they get sold.
