I understand that. My son shot one that went in to the palmettos. If I had been packing a handgun, I would have went in after it. No way I was going on foot into waist high cover with a scoped rifle looking for a wounded hog. Bottom line, Jevyod, carry what you are most confident with. I'm sure that any rifle you have will take a hog. Been a lot of whitetail killed with .22lr in PA over the years. Hell, I had a gun shop owner tell me that a .22 won't kill a coyote, as he was looking a the 55 pound male on the tailgate of my truck. 75 yard head shot with a Norinco JW-15 in 22lr. So, enjoy your hunt. Kill as many as you can and bring back lots of fresh pork.
Every gun I've been behind can out shoot me.
