  • They are now on the attack.

    Wild boars cornered a woman in Rome supermarket parking lot and stole her groceries.

    PH, guys with big bore pistols have hit them and had them run right by.
    I mentioned before, my truck driving Father said the last thing they want to hit is a pig. They kick like crazy and take out air and electric lines under tractor.

      Pigs are tough but can be taken down with small caliber guns. Shot placement is the key. I've killed one with my .22 magnum rifle and it was on the run, not in a pen. I've used handguns to kill three others. Here's a report of an Alabama man using three shots from his 38 revolver to drop a large one...

      What is your aim point ? One guy I know had a .44mag from a tree blind and lost a few on a paid hunt. He was ready to sell his .44.

      Pretty small rope to hang that pig by.

        PH -
        But you don't do second shots.
        You prefer to use a long spear, for "the thrill of the kill."
        Right?

          Tred Barta practiced running through the woods with a Bowie knife in his mouth to catch up with a pig and kill it. You are probably too ;young to remember him. He was a real wild man early in his years. His full time job was a pilot that would deliver new planes to clients. Very entertaining man.
