I would hope not and hopefully I could find another way. Breaking the law is breaking the law. I don't think there is an * beside the laws that say "but if you really need to break the law its OK" I think that only applies to Memphis.

Selling wild game is also an illegal activity. Many people rob for food, whether it be robbing another man or nature it is still done by a thief. No matter the reason.
Oh, I totally agree and understand. Just sharing how things were back then (during the Great Depression), although I'm not sure selling otherwise legally killed wild game was illegal in those days. To my knowledge, they did all their hunting legally, but much of the wild game was more valuable to them in exchange for cash than merely eating it. All I heard about them selling was ducks & quail, and the county judge was his best customer. They ate a lot of squirrel and possum (not sure about the rabbits), while the quail and ducks were sold for cash.

Other people back then fed their families by running moonshine.

One financial problem with hunting to feed a hungry family is the fact that most people have to drive a fair distance to get to a place to hunt. The cost of gas for that 4WD truck would buy a fair amount of food whereas there is no guarantee that you'll shoot game when you go to hunt. The only people who could do this and actually save money are people who can walk to hunting land and that is getting few and far between.
