    I was taught by an old salty dog here in Tx that if you shoot the damn thing when its gonna be cold (40 deg or below) gut it and hang it "till the mornin" then cut it into the coolers or freezer. If you shoot the GD hog when it is gonna be warm (40 deg +) gut it, chop it (quarter), and get it on ice right away. And lastly if you wanna shoot "somthin" when it's hot (70 deg +) gut shoot a hog and let it die on someone else's property.

    as to temps that is guide that I follow, as to the neighbors any dead hog on their property is more a product of a bad shot on my part, than an attempt to get out of gutting a hog.

    to the OP: you will probably not be able to buy/ barter with hunters for any wild hog meat in your area. The earlier post was right stating that you might be able to find a restaurant or supplier that has "grass fed/ wild game" meat and get close.

    OP, if you were nearby in Fla., you could have had one of the two I got yesterday with one shot. I'm the only meat eater in the house so I'll be chompin on pork for a while.

    40 degrees? Hmm, rarely gets that cold here. It has, but it's rather rare. We did have an "ice storm", well, they closed the bridge over Corpus Christi bay last year for a morning as well as the one going out on Padre Island. That was all the news at the time. :D ICE, can you believe it, ICE that didn't fall out of the ice truck. :D

    Here in CA it's illegal to sell any sort of wild game. I have fun whenever I go into a restaurant and they have "wild boar" on the menu and I ask them how they get it considering it's illegal. Most have no idea, some will finally admit that it's farm raised "wild", whatever that means. I understand how you can farm raise venison, but how do you possibly farm raise a "wild" animal??
