Thanks for the replies guys
The place I am thinking about going is pretty unusual. They pretty much allow any weapon to be used on the hogs, even samurai swords. I have to find the website again... its on my other computer. The other outfit I found offer hunts with bows, shotguns, or rifles. I will probably bring both the rifle and shotgun along for the ride, but I sure as heck don't plan to carry both of them out with me.
For hog hunts using dogs, I understand the range the hogs are shot at are pretty close. In that case, in think the shotgun would be far better than the rifle. Am I correct? A buddy of mine even suggested using the .357 mag since the hogs in FL don't get as big. I will probably go with the shotgun with slugs and the .357 mag as backup.
Capp35: The dogs are for the hog hunt, not the deer.
Thanks for the info guys. I'll let you know how it goes.
The ATF should be a convenience store instead of a government agency!
