we have an extreme wild hog problem and have had to began trapping. they are terrorizing or farm land. it is costing us quite a bit of money to build traps and with corn costs being at an all time high we figured there is somebody out there buying wild hogs dead or alive. we currently have 1 sow weighing around 130 and three piglets 20-30 lbs and a 130 llb boar hog that we trapped and kept alive. if anyone would like to buy these pigs or know anybody that does please PM me or repost with the info.

thanks

I really dont think there is a market to sell wild hogs. You may be able to pay someone to kill them for you or I am sure there would be plenty of volunteers to remove them from your land for free.
Just my thoughts.

Where do you live? I'll kill them for free. I'll use a bow if you don't want guns on the property.

Where do u live. I know we trap alot in huntsville and sell to a guy in dime box anything over 200 lbs 70 cents a pound anything weighing 150-200 i think 50 cents and so on down. we caught about 12 hogs one days and made that trip and we had good beer money for the month. i am not sure what is phone number is but i know he buys year around. there is a big market for them russian boar or cross hogs in china.

Sorry hit reply to fast. You cant transport those pigs unless you have them tested. Live wild ferals must be tested.

Unless you are one of the two companies in Texas thats sells them to the european suckers who actually eat them as wild boar meat then there is no market for them.

Just shoot em'.

Actually there is a very large market for live wild hogs. What Bassmaster 2004 said for prices, there is a buyer in West Columbia, little pigs bring very little though. rs

Like previous posters said, there is a good market for wild hogs.....Yes, they are butchered and shipped to Europe and the far east as "wild boar".

You can't transport out of the county they were caught in if you are transporting to a quarantined county, which most around here are. TP&W officials cannot give you a straight answer on the law, trust me, we've had many conversations. Health districts have the final say, like I said earlier there is a healthy market for live wild hogs, the bigger the better. I will be taking a load to West Columbia this evening or tommorrow, depends on the weather. rs
