A buddy of mine wants to go hog hunting. Unfortunately the hog season for the Wildlife management area is closed.
However, You can hunt hog anytime you are hunting small game.
BUT you can only carry the firearm that is appropriate for said small game.
.22 rimfire.

I have a couple of .22 repeaters that will handle .22LR and a Single Six that will handle .22 Mag.

What would you do? Go look for hogs and squirrel with a .22 or wait until next season?

Pigs, .22 to the brain pan and they drop. but you can get real close to a pig.
My concern is, of course, hitting a moving feral hog in a vital place with a .22.
I would prefer to use a 45-70, .44 Mag, .357 Mag or something more serious. The LAST thing I want to do is track a wounded, pissed off hog through a swamp with a .22! I am interested in others comments on this though.
