I gotta side with okiecruffler: I killed a few hogs a long time ago back when I was a kid. Used either a .22lr or a 30-30 (just what I happened to have).
JPP: was your neighbor harmed, or did the pig just run away after the collision?
Only person I ever heard of being harmed by a hog got cut while he was trying to let one out of a trap.
Javelina, now, that's a different story. I've had a couple of friends get cut up by them and I've spent a couple hours in a tree waiting for them to disperse...
Also back when I was a kid.
I wouldn't worry much about a hog attack while hiking.
