In Germany I have gotten phone calls in the middle of the night from other hunters to help find a wounded animal. We will search until found. Revier owners are required to own a trained tracking dog, and us hunters are trained for tracking. This is the compassion and respect that I was talking about. Sorry you thought I was talking about you, I was not. Peace brother. Good harvesting. Waidmannsheil.
I suppose I should chime in here....As the OP, I just feel it's my place to say something here.
Jagermeister, I think by "quoting" Olympus' response, you are, more or less, using him through your response. I think it was not his intent, or mine, for that matter, to see if we can make an animal suffer. I'm thinking that if you subscribe to this forum, I rake you as a sportsman with a hunters integrity. My intention with this post was to simply see if anyone has used the 357sig on a hog. I know the 357sig's capability on humans through police reports. So, maybe this post wasn't "really" warranted. But I did. As far as 9mm, and an air rifle go, I saw an episode of Guns and Ammo a few weeks back, that had Dick Metcalf take a deer with a Benjamin air rifle. This pellet gun took a deer at about 50 yards. And the deer fell without taking a step.
We all want our hunted game to fall where shot. It's a natural macho-type thing in hunters to have a one shot kill, and to drop in their tracks. I suppose there are some idiots out there that might get off watching an animal suffer. But they're most likely not on this forum. I hope the "enough gun" debate is over. Thanks!

I just want to add that in Texas you use dogs to kick up the hogs! Which means up close shots 2ft-5ft. If the hog is out in a field you use a rifle (.308) you shouldn't chime in on a post if you don't know how we hunt!!!!

Ok, maybe that didn't come out as I wanted I guess. Are you directing this comment to me? Man, I hope not, 'cause we're on the same side here.....

So every hunter should carry a .44 mag as a backup or something because its "more humans"? What if they can't handle the recoil? What if they just don't have a handgun of a larger caliber such as that? He was asking about the two he has and if it'd be okay to use... I'd rather have a 9mm over a .22 any day

Good, glad to hear it!!!!

Jager,
I get the same crap when I tell people I don't agree with beginner and/or average hurters using a 243 for big game hunting. Some people are really hung up on emotion and can't handle logic and facts very well. Just reality I guess!
