Legalities on trapping hogs (selling live or dead hogs)

I've been trapping hogs for last year and am getting way to many . More than freezer can handle most I have been catching have men 30lbs to 200lbs at most. I was wondering what the legalities on selling dead or even live hogs if
Possible and if anyone would even be interested in buying any . The louisiana wildlife and fisheries site does not have much about the trapping or selling of them if that is even legal. any info would be appreciated I just have been catching a lot of them fro chalets are to st Tammany area. Thanx
I may be interested in quite a few 30lbers. From Walker, where are you?
Live Hogs
You may want to check with the LA Dept of Agriculture. Not sure about LA but it is illegal to transport live wild hogs in TX unless they are being brought to a slaughter facility. Reason being is that wild hogs can carry alot of diseases like brucellosis that can be transferred to cattle and the DOA wants to keep that from happening. I believe oversight transfers from WLF to DOA once the hogs are caught.
Legal on selling hogs
I finally got in touch with wildlife and fisheries about laws on subject. as long as it is on private land (which I am) it is legal to transport live hogs to a pen or structure . also it is legal to sell live or butchered hogs to people willing to buy to recoup some of your money back for trapping . That being said I do have some for sale at this point I am located in the pearl river area and can be contacted at 985-285-8445 prices are small 10-20 pounders 20 bucks a pop and others 25-200lbs are $1.00 on the hoof also offering clean, quatered, and iced up for $1.75 on the hoof
Wild Hogs
If you or anybody can bring to Los Angeles, I will buy $1.20 per lbs.
We can put 10 carcasses or more in a refrigerated or freezer van or using the big chest with dry ice. It will take about 25 hrs driving. The dry ice can last from 24 to 36 hrs to sublimate.
