I'm from Texas. Hog capital of the world and ive probably taken about 300-400 pigs with my .257 weatherby mag with 117 grain round nose bullets and to this day I've failed to see a rifle that over comes it. It leaves all compedaters in the dust

Wow you need a .257 Mag. to shoot hogs. Most are shot at very close range. As I recall a 30-30 always seemed to work OK. If you shot 400 hogs in one year that would be 1.09589041 per. day. I can only imagine eating over 1 ton of pork even in Texas. I have a good friend at Seadrift, Txs who has killed many hogs with a .22 pistol.

I don't know how closely they watch their pigs, but would imagine some escape and survive.
I heard there are getting to be some wild hogs down around St. George/Mesquite.

Everything up north is domestic cross on private land.

Just how old are you mon ami? Cuz if you have killed 300-400 of em then you have to be a better hog hunter than me, muliemaster, downsouth, and a few others combined.

God didnt make all men equal colonel Sam Colt did
