I've killed wild hogs, and I've killed wild boar.
I've seen a LOT of hogs and boar killed.

My first wild boar was taken with a Dan Wesson .44 magnum, one shot, in the neck. The distance was 7 feet. It weighed 265 lbs., on the hoof. 210 lbs, dressed.
It dropped where it stood.

My wild hog was taken with a Marlin 1895G in .45-70.
The boolit used was a 405 gr hardcast LWNGC at about 1660 fps. It was shot just above the right shoulder and did not exit. The distance was about 20 yards.
The hog 'shuddered' and dropped dead.
It weighed 320+ lbs. The guide estimated it at 350 lbs.
Over 220 lbs went into the freezer.

The Okie Corral

I've watched wild hogs and wild boar being taken with .50 muzzleloaders, .44 magnum from a Ruger Deerfield carbine, .30-'06 from a Ruger No.3, .30-30 from Winchester '94.


Two years ago, I watched a 'kid' shoot a 200 lb boar with a bow. The 'kid' lied and said that the bow was legal. Draw weight wasn't legal. (The 'kid' and his uncle joined our 'party', last minute. We had never seen them, before.)
He wounded the hog (the arrow went about halfway in) and my hunting partner finished it off with his Walther PPK/s in .380, with TWO shots to the head.
(At 4 feet, the .380 was still anemic, IMNSHO.)


Use a big-enough caliber to do the job.

Take your AR, try to get some TSX or ballistic tip ammo to use. Any shot other than a neck or head shot is going to destroy some meat.

AR with 30 round mag is common here, and fun.
I use an AR and 30 rounders all the time out around San Angelo. It really torques me when people say there's no hunting use for ARs.

Lots and lots of camo.
Smoke bombs and a boom box blaring Ride of the Valkyries and appropriate war paint and even more camo - I say. Go hard or go home.

fwiw

You don't ned a license to hunt hogs in the state of TX if they are damaging your land

You don't need a license to hunt hogs on private party in the state of Florida.


You will need a license in Both states for hunting hogs on public lands or as a designated hunt ( your are not taking it under the nusiance animal control for TX )

Indian trade musket (20ga) and a longrifle (.50 cal) get used for wild hogs.

Hey Dalton,

What boolits did you use in your AK for that hunt?
I can't remember the weight but it's soft point Tula

I use my G20 with 200g beartooth from Double tap and they work well. Sometimes I'll use my 30-30 or .243

I had to buy 5 rounders here in Florida to use my AR.

I shoot quite a few every year and I use my deer rifle. Browning A-bolt in 280 or my loaner rife another A-bolt in 270. Both works great and never had one go over 10 yards, most drop on the spot. A few in my lease use ARs with good luck but I love my A-bolts for hogs.

I had many tell me about the bad taste in boars but I have killed some large ones and never had that bad taste they talk about. I grind the large ones up and use in spaghetti,chili, or my wife makes lumpia with the ground meat (she’s Filipina).

The way a real man does it is to climb a tree and jump on the hog's back with a knife.

Loincloth optional.

Also are is there a set number of rounds your allowed to carry when hunting with an AR or shotguns? The answers I found varied.
I've killed a 250#'er with a 30-30 behind the ear and he dropped in his tracks. Another one the same size with a 30-06 behind the low right shoulder quartering to in front of the left shoulder killed him, but he got into the brush and rambled around for 15 minutes or so. We had to go after him after dark and didn't know at that point if he was still alive or not.

This .pdf may help you understand the anatomy differences. Note how low the heart placement is, so it's rather tough to get at. Personally, with a .223, I'd go for behind the ear unless I had a VERY good angle on the heart... but with a heart shot they'll still run on you so you may need to track. With the ear shot I'd bet on DRT.

Good luck, and have fun!

Oh, if you're going to skin it out, understand that the boar has TWO bladders... DO NOT POKE A HOLE IN THEM as if the urine hits the meat you may as well toss it out.
