Re: Feral Hogs

YouTube is full of videos of people killing hogs with air rifles, even in .17 caliber. That they can be killed with something like that doesn't negate the ethical requirement to to kill them quickly and cleanly if at all possible......even if they are the orcs of the animal kingdom. I'm not the one here with experience killing hogs (although I would very much like to have that esperience :mrgreen: ), but it seems to me that a .223/5.56 rifle would be a minimum requirement. OTH, an old shooting buddy of mine who has since shuffled off this mortal coil once told me that, as a lad growing up in rural PA before WW2, his dad used to tell him to go get some venison for the larder with his little .22 rifle. The times being what they were, he would drop a couple of "boolits" in his pocket and take off early in the morning, sit in the snow freezing his tuckus off until a deer showed up, pop it in the neck with his .22, and be back by lunch time. He also said that if he could have afforded more rifle at the time, he'd have brought more rifle.

Talk about a blast from the past! I remember when you first posted that thread. :lol:
Yes, its an old, but ongoing thread. I really need to keep it more current.

I've been battling hogs for close to 30 years now. Shoot them, Trap them, Snare them, Run them with dogs on occasion. They just keep making more. :grumble

There needs to be a Federal Fund set aside....to help trap them and ship them to the Middle East. That's what I think we should be doing with them.
Flint, I know it's your FIL's property, and you have plenty of family to help, but I will be itching to try out my suppressed .300 Blk SBR on hogs when ATF finally sends me my stamp to build the upper. If you ever need help, call me. I'll buy the beer......or sweet tea.....or whatever you're having! :lol:
