Animal rights groups are outraged over what they say is persecution of pigs. Don Anthony, of the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida, said he doesn’t believe the swine are causing all the problems that are claimed.
He wants state leaders to “leave them alone or find a way to neuter them to keep their population down,” he said. Since the hogs have been in the United States for five hundred years, they’re “almost natives,” so “we should be used to them by now. Killing them is barbaric and unnecessary,” he said.
Probably depends on the city.I wonder if they are going to look the other way about 'discharging a weapon in city limits' with that one...
I know he does. I'm just wondering if anyone else is crazy enough to hunt feral hogs with a .22.CJ he really needs a bigger caliber, those things are mean and nasty. I knew a guy here that hunted them with dogs and a knife but he was a mean SOB.
Smallest I will use is my Mini 30 or my G20 with 6" after market barrel and 230gr lead. I have seen what they can do when they get "annoyed". And from my research even a 7.62x39 might not be enough to take them down later in the year. Then I will up it to the .270Win with my hand loaded 150gr soft point.That's what I keep telling him. Those damn things are MEAN! Gotta drop 'em.
Since all he has is a .22, he's pretty insistent.

I'd feel safer with a dog and a knife. Much safer.
