Where are you heading to hunt? I ask as i've been wanting to go hog hunting myself and was searching around in SoCal for a good place. I recently found a ranch in San Jacinto that offers upland game bird hunts as well as hog and coyote.
As far as storing/preparing game meat as well as any store bought meats/poultry and fish, try to get yourself a foodsaver if possible. I have vacu-sealed meats for six months to a year with no issues. If you belong to Sams club or Costco they both offer foodsaver starter kit that come with bags for around $100.
