Not quite a hog ...
They're not quite a hog but, I have shot a javelina with a 22lr from a pistol. Put the round just between his left ear and eye, from 50 yards away. He couldn't get up but squealed and bled profusely until he received a 12 gauge finish.
I've always heard that a hog's skin is very similar to that of a humans. That a lighter faster round, with fragmentation, would be the ideal round.
I just joined this group and picked this particular thread hoping it had attracted avid hog hunters. I'd like to know if anyone has any experience hunting feral pigs in Iowa? I've never hunted them and would like to start. Maybe Iowa isn't the state for it but, it's where I live right now.
