I was wanting a light gun that I will carry in the pursuit of hogs on foot over rough terrain.
If that's the case, why are you choosing an AR? I didn't see any mention of caliber, but if you are talking the usual .223/5.56mm I wouldn't think it to be a good hog gun, particularly in rough terrain where shots are likely to be fast, and at short range.

Now, if you are talking about a .458 Socom or a .50 Beowulf, that's a different matter, and trust me, those guns, as light as can be done, will kick, most noticeably.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
