    Can I hunt pigs in Texas with an AK or SKS with hi-caps?

    So I would think that you could. I guess I am asking myself, "why would you want to?". Many moons ago when I was much younger, I took on a herd of swine with an AR15 and 30 rnds of justice. They were eating a deer I had hung in a tree. I let loose with all 30 rounds and did not drop a single pig. Later that weekend the buzzards led me to a couple of pigs that I had wounded and subsequently died. I felt like a jerk for not putting them down cleanly. Please learn from my mistake. I am not saying don't use your AK, but think of the ammo in you magazine as extra ammo for a follow up shot or for other targets once your orginal animal is down.

    Hope this helps you out.

    In Texas pigs are exotic game and can be taken year round by any legal means (tanks and hand gernades are not legal) by anybody with a license.

    Thats what I thought.

    I am going to kill them because they are tearing up some family land we have that we don't use much. I don't plan on going psyco on them. I mean 1 or 2 rounds should do the trick, the other 38 or 39 are an insurance policy if they charge.
