Shoot them piggies! It's legal to hunt them at night now, with certain restrictions. From DNR's webpage:
'There is no closed season on hogs and hogs can be hunted at night with an artificial light that is carried on the hunter's person attached to a helmet or hat, or part of a belt system worn by the hunter and with a sidearm that has iron sites, and barrel length not exceeding nine inches (50-11-710). The sidearm may not be equipped with a butt-stock, scope, laser site, or light emitting or light enhancing device. However, hogs may not be hunted at night from a vehicle, or with a centerfire rifle or shotgun, unless specifically permitted by the department.'
And of course you can hunt them with rifles and shotguns during daylight hours. What have you done with the ones you've caught in the trap? Many deer processors in SC will process hogs for you.
