Feral Hogs
Feral Pigs
Wild Pigs
Wild Hogs
Razorbacks
European Wild Boars
Russian Wild Boars


These are all names for the problem Swine.


These animals cause a lot of trouble where ever they are found, with a little homework any guy could go out and get some meat as long as they don't have worms, always check for worms!

The WDNR did me the favor and saved me some research, here’s the link with all the info a hog hunter should need.

WDNR Feral Pig Fact Sheet


Where do you shoot them, I've read that if you don't aim for the vitals behind the ear works well with most larger calibers. The vital area of a pig is directly over the top of elbow joint. Don't shoot to far to the rear unless you want to track the lil piggy.

Looks to me you already know where the vitals are Younggun.

Nice pig, the only hog hunting I ever did is for a whole different forum. :wink:

Are those hogs from Wisconsin, or did you have to travel?

The one with the bow is the first pig killed oneida county Wisconsin. The last one was on a RD trip for Garrett Cartridge inc. in upper Michigan. I have a few more but I can't find the pics. I have traveled south a few times to shoot a few.

Shot one years ago in Tennessee but have not found one here in the wilds of Wi. They're fun to hunt and good to eat.
I saved alot on my insurance just by switching into reverse and fleeing the scene of the accident.
