i would just stick with the 308 because that packs enough punch to bring one down

Default No offense to me Matt.

No offense, but dogs are for girls.

There's good ol boys round here that would consider that fighting words, and the fight would be on. Don't never say nothing about a Man's hounds, young'uns, Wife, or truck. in that order.

I'd stick with a just a knife for hogs, but California requires me to use a gun.

If you happen to be headed for the Desoto National Forrest or its vicinity, take a large caliber pistol as backup. I live near there & have heard many stories of people getting chased up into their trucks when a big hog magically appeared out of the bushes. One guy swore the thing ripped up a 36" mud tire on his pickup. Most of the deer hunters in the area carry something in their pocket in case they drop their rifle or are in a REAL hurry.

Good luck & take some deer with you, please.

I know I am spelling this wrong but Kosyesko, is where I went. The deer are THICK! I always thought I saw a lot during season around here, usually 3-4 a nite, there it was like 10-20 a nite. The first nite I was out, I saw 13. bucks, does, fawns. the last nite, I think I counted 18, not 100% sure on the count since they were being chased by a buck.

Kosciusko & yes, the deer are quite thick up there in that part of the state. I'm not sure about the hogs up there; cool people though.

This 308 rifle is what I use to hunt hogs here in TX..............




So far....... I haven't had any complaints from a hog after being shot with this particular rifle..... or any other rifle for that matter. If your 308 is reliable and meets your accuracy requirements with your load of choice then it will certainly be up to dumpin hogs provided that your doin your part.

Never used a knife to hunt hogs with however. They run to fast for me to get that close. ;

If a hog ever bites me. I'll bite him back.......then shoot him..

Springfield Bush Rifle?

M14s are a good choice. Big round, lots of ammo, quick reload.

The rifle I use is a custom build.
Norinco M14S receiver, Criterion 18.5in chrome lined bbl with USGI inards, and SEI front end. I pulled the scope off of it since most shots are inside of 100yds where we hunt.

My wife and son use the Springfields..........


Top to bottom........
SocomII without the rail system. (Makes for a very handy rifle in the bush)
M1A Bush rifle ( Built at the factory with USGI inards.......Op-rod,TG, and bolt are TRW.)

I'm a paycheck or two away from an SEI built rifle. I hope I can get it ordered before they get banned.
