Look at the browning hog stalker it comes in different calibers i got mine in 308 winchester it shoots straight three bullets touching at 100 yrds recoil is less then 223 you can add cast to stock easily three recoil pads to adjust stock fit for light to heavy clothing three cheek riser pads you can make this rifle fit you like. Glove at home and change it for friends in about 10 min yes it is a bit to clean and oil but the gas system is virtually self cleaning my thirteen year old daughter shoots this gun well due to fit and lack of recoil which she describes as like her sks with 125 gr hornady bullets

I'm a big auto fan. But if you already have an ar-15, take a look at the Remmy 700 SPS Police. That's one awesome weapon. For short range stuff like hogs, I'd put a Leupold 1-4.5 scope on it.

Default Bolt or Semi .308?

No ARS in canada unless you jump through legal hoops and follow the rules exactly the penalties are sever for not doing so i think semi auto 308 are good no brand mentioned also norenco 305 and kel-tec su22 are available over the counter

I take a 30/06 with me when I travel. I have never been anywhere I couldn't find 30/06 hunting ammo, quickly and easily.

Same here. It also discourages long shots risking to wound the animal.

For targets, the AR platform is too light in this caliber. It's gonna kick. Unless you want to roam free or do tactical drills, consider a heavier semiauto for targets such as the Springfield M1A.
