Re: How much Energy is needed to take an hog ?
I live and hunt in east Texas and have killed more pigs than I would care to count. I have used recurve bows, compound bows, 9mm, 22 mag, 22-250, 25-06, 6.5x55, 30-30, 30-06 etc. and all are more than capable of killing pigs. Some how pigs have gained an almost mythical ability to survive any cartridge and that is not the case. If you can hit the vitals they will die the same as any other animal so just pick your favorite weapon and help us thin the herd.
