I like the iron sighted .32 Winchester Special myself.
.44 magnum lever action
The same thing I use on black bear. I use a Ruger OMBH in .41Magnum. For pig and bear, I use a 250grWFNGC ahead of quite a bit of W296. If the place doesn't let me handgun hunt, I take my cash elsewhere. RKBA!;a ;f
Single shot 10 ga slug gun with a 3 1/2 inch 1 3/4 ounce federal hi shock HP slug.
And a 454 casull taurus raging bull for backup
12ga autoloader slug gun with a red nightblaster!!!!!!!!!!!;I
I prefer 2 Plott hounds, a jacked up Pitbull, and a 12 inch hunting knife.
I Normally use a either .41 mag or .44 mag S&W
Smith .41 Mag. (Model 58 or somethin like that?)
.30-30 Winchester M94
I use my trusty 270, and have never had a problem. My buddy uses a 22 mag and he is 14 pigs for 15 shots. I tend to let the big pigs go and try to take the 100 pounders and less.
Could u use a SKS for hunting pigs here in CA?
I believe so, check out this site. Looks like you can use just about anything except a knife.
Anyone here use Archery tackle?
This would be fun...
A Boar Spear from Cold Steel.
My uncle who lives down by Houston hunts wild boar exclusively with bows. He makes it sound like a good time, but I'm still not convinced.
I've got a 210 pound Russian black boar hanging on the wall that taught me a big lesson.
I used my S&W model 629 Classic .44 mag with Millett sights and it's MagnaPorted. The gun is great. My mistake was in the ammunition I used. I shot this pig with RP 240 grain soft points. This hog had approximately an inch and a half of "armour" in his shoulders. The softpoints just wouldn't penetrate. As I said, this tusker chased me 4 times. I know of a guy who got 125 stitches up the inside of his thigh when he winged a hog and tried to run backwards. I don't want that ever happening to me, too close to my real assets... So, I hand load.
My hog load is a 240 grain sillouette bullet (fully jacketed flat nose) on top of lots of powder. Not enough powder to hurt myself, but I take it to the limit. I only use the load for hunting. The last hog I shot went down with one hit to the right shoulder. When we cleaned him, we found the spent bullet in the hog's left hind thigh. Now that's plenty of penetration.
So my advice is: use a magnum pistol and get in close and use the hottest SOLID bullets you can find... and enjoy yourself. There's something special about hunting something that can fight back.
Why would they not allow you to use a knife? The only hog hunting i have ever done involved a few dogs, a lariat rope and a knife with a gun as backup. I am about to get a g20 to bring along for the big ones that just toss the dogs aside, i tried a .22 rifle but it is annoying to carry and it just doesn't cut it for the big ones, in fact i once hit a 450lb boar 12 times and he didn't slow down for about 400 yards, when we skinned him all of the bullets had been stopped by his hide, he had just gotten tired of running.
I can only imagine that here in CA that would be considered cruel to the animal. Either that or CA is paranoid about getting sued my some dummy who gets hurt by a boar he was trying to kill with a pocket knife because the goverment said it was ok, so it must be their fault.
Either senario is stupid but equally possible in CA.
Ruger .41 mag single action. I love the .41 mag round-try it you will like it!
a russian mosin nagant 91/59.. it is small enough to be a good brush gun,and the 7.62x54 bullet packs a pretty good punch..i have also used a 6.5x55 swede mauser m96 on pigs...as you can see i love my milsurps..
