Re: A Hog Rifle?
45/70 for short-range work and Springfield Armory SOCOM 2 for night hunts or stalks.
Shot placement is key - and a huge bullet sure helps. Hit brain, spine, heart or BOTH LUNGS, or the hog will live.
For longer range shots, I like a very accurate 300WM.
Bow hunting hogs is also fun.
be advised: hogs do not go quietly, and they get really upset is wounded, especially if their young un's are around.
