    I haven't but I want to. I'll take my 06, it doesn't have to be a boar, a sweet little sow will be just fine.

      Barksdale Air Force Base Louisiana deer season 1976. 30-06 03A3, Hornady 130 grain bullet sizzaling at the muzzle at 3300ish fps range 150 someodd yards. That 130 worked really good with one shot on that Ol’boar it did, big sucker too!

        I have killed feral hogs with everything from a muzzleloader and a patched round ball to hand guns to archery equipment. If I am shooting them while they are raiding crop fields I use a 30/06 with 165 grain Nosler Accubonds at a little over 2850.

        If I'm woods hunting them I use a traditional style sidehammer percussion or flintlock muzzloader loaded with a patched round ball.

          I shot two back in the seventies on an island in the Mississippi River. Actually they were feral hogs and one was a sow. A .357 handgun shot to the head killed each of them from about 15 feet as I was sitting in a tree stand.

            My personal favorite is 12GA rifled slugs out of my Mossberg 500. But a close second would be with a bow.

              I have shot one with a 325 WSM, which was more than enough but is the only thing I have above .22-250. I have also dispatched them in the trap with my buddy's 9mm.

                I shot one in Alabama with my 257 Weatherby Magnum using 117 Hornady round nose bullets. Fell like lightning had struck him.

                                My guess is variants from the Covid strain to the R-1, a new strain will be bad - bad in a sense it can mutate faster than we can develop antibodies...

                                Thanks, Fitch -- interesting info, and you also triggered some good memories of my friend in high school who introduced me to punk and alternative music....
