Re: Hog hunting questions

Heartland Patriot wrote:Second-hand info, but I have a buddy who recently shot a hog with a .223 AR. Used Russian steel case 62 grain FMJ...right in the head, he said the hog dropped right where it was standing and died on the spot. All about shot placement, I'd guess. When I was a kid in South Texas, a variety of firearms were used on them, but it seemed like lever action rifles in .44 Mag were a favorite, not sure of what type of bullets, though.
I have one of those in the form of a Henry. To my knowledge, there's not a huge variety of .44mag ammo, but I am far from an expert on the subject. I just haven't seen very many different types of ammo in this caliber. I imagine just about any FMJ .44 mag will get the job done. Years ago I thought about taking it into the mountains with me on a backpacking trip and got some really hot stuff, but it was a little longer and wouldn't cycle properly, so I never even fired the stuff.

Re: Hog hunting questions

I was thinking about this last night, but was too tired to stay up and ask about it. Isn't most hog hunting done in the evening after the sun goes down? Is that why I've seen so many 200+ lumen red and green flashlights that can be attached to a rifle?

Re: Hog hunting questions

Due to their considerable overpopulation, aren't they now considered little more than overgrown rats with no bag limit? Is a hunting license even required since there is no "season" or bag limit?
