What kind of gun and what caliber do you guys use for hogs? I'm planning on using my 7mm rem mag but can go bigger if I need to. I have not been hog hunting before and am planing on a hog hunt soon so I wanted to see what you guys said first

I think it depends on the type of hog hunting you will be doing, ie dogs, feeders, or spot and stalk.

I'll be on the ground with them. Either spot and stalk or still hunting

Any deer caliber will work for still hunting them. 12ga slugs are hard to beat at close range in the thick stuff. I carry a 1187 on WMA hunts and a .22 mag for dog hunting. The .22 mag is just for point blank stuff normally. It will get you ran over a lot though if your not careful \:D

More than likely they will be moving through thick stuff so a good brush gun w/ iron sights. Seen a lot hunt w/ lever action. Seen guys also shoot like a Rem 7400 or AR

Killed em on a lease I used to be on with 300 win mag, 45/70, crossbow and muzzleloader. My buddy and my nephew both killed them with 270s. Anything good for deer will work. I even killed one with a Glock 27.

I really want to use my 10mm but will probably wait till deer season this year to test it out on them first. I don't want a mad wounded hog in thick brush to deal with.
