    Great hog hunting vids - see what a skilled operator can do!!!

    These are some videos of some very skilled shooters hunting feral pigs. The shooting is awesome and so is the gun handling.

    I'm pretty sure that in all these vids the rifle used is a Sauer 202 (bolt) or a Sauer 303 (semi). The calibers I heard mentioned are .270, .300 Win, 7mm mag., and some kind of thirty zero six - really - that's the way he said it, thirty zero six, JIC, that's a thirty aught six.

    All the 'scopes' are Aimpoints. I use quotes because as 'scopes' they are RDSs with NO magnification, NO parallax at any range, and have infinite eye relief. Some are pretty expensive, although compared to a lot of the top of the line scopes, they are inexpensive.

    As I recall, there are various models of Aimpoints used in the first two vids, so you can keep an eye on the various scope models.

    Don't judge all the vids based on one or two - some are better than others - I think they're all great!

    Here's the first of a two part vid:

    Wild boar hunt 1/2 (Awesome kill Shots) - YouTube

    and part 2/2:

    Wild boar hunt 2/2 (MUST SEE!!) - YouTube

    Then here's a 4 part series:

    Part 1
    Wild Boar Fever 1 - Hunters Video - YouTube

    Part 2
    Wild Boar Fever 2 - Hunters Video - YouTube

    Part 3
    Wild Boar Fever 3 - Hunters Video - YouTube

    Perhaps the best one of the four:

    Those are pretty cool. But I still prefer a good sixgun and iron sights to add a little extra challenge to it.

    LOL - yeah, there does need to be some challenge to it

    Actually, I'll have either a Kimber .45 or G21 gen 4 with me for the purpose of taking a hog.

    Any thoughts on ammo for the .45 ACP? I'm thinking Critical Duty - not that I could find any these days.

    Thanks for the video links! Hogs are becoming a real problem down here, as I am sure Glockman10mm can attest to from his neck of the woods. Out of curiosity, have you seen any down toward Chattanooga?

    I sure as heck wouldn't use Critical Duty, or an HP on a hog. The way you take a hog with the handgun is to anchor it by busting the shoulder. Forget heart/ lung shots common on other game.

    For that, I would load up with a hardcast bullet. With a 45ACP you are going to want to limit that shot at no more than 15 yards.

    The goal is to immobilize them first, and then follow up if needed.

    To be perfectly honest, I would only use a 45Colt loaded with 255-315 weight bullets as a minimum standard pressure load.

    Most of the fella's I know use either a 44 or 41 Magnum down here. Funny thing, you can still find both calibers on the shelves here. Lets you know most folks have forgotten about shootin' these great old rounds. How do you think 45 hardball will work on one of these porkers? Reason I ask is you mentioned the 45 ACP and I just found out a neighbor of my dad's shot 3 hogs not long ago. My dad said he is going to start carrying a pistol when he is on the tractor (he has a large Massey Ferguson with an enclosed cab and keeping a long gun in there may not be an option). I didn't know if you had used a 45 ACP to take one before.

    I saw a video or news blurb of some kind that said feral pig infestation was affecting 3/4 of the US and growing.

    It's kind of strange in Tennessee, I've been told that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) has taken pigs off the big game list, meaning there is NO season for hog hunting in Tennessee and to hunt or kill a hog, one has to have a special permit, even on private property as I understand it.

    It seems the reason they took this approach was because people were trapping and breeding the hogs to insure there would be hogs left to hunt, which was, of course, propagating the feral pig population and hence the 'infestation' - if there is one in TN.

    I can't vouch for the accuracy of any of that, but that's how a 'hog' hunter, or used to be hog hunter, explained it.

    Critical Duty is designed to penetrate barriers and expand on flesh, but I can see where it may not be effective on a hog's shoulder, and speaking of hog shoulders, funny you should mention that.

    Every quick stop I've seen and I've seen a bunch (YouTube), the shot was a shoulder shot or spine shot, not the behind the shoulder heart/lung shot. Of course those were with rifles that destroy the shoulder, hydrostatic shock and tear the heart and lungs and probably pulse the brain, and destroy the other shoulder.

    I have never used a 45Acp on hogs, but it can be done. Ol slabsides is good for most anything within reason short of bison or other heavy boned muscled animals. Hardball could work, but it just wouldn't be my first choice.

    It is my opinion, that in the absence of the 41 and 44 magnums, a 45Colt loaded to its regular load of a 255 grn bullet at 900 fps is just about the best non magnum medicine there is to be had. And if you want to, you can load the 45 Colt up to power levels that would make Dirty Harry run for cover.

    Well, this doesn't speak to the ammo, but it is a G21 .45ACP - the good part starts at about the 1:00 mark:

    Tangle - Thanks for the video again! I liked that one alot. Funny I knew you could get an extended barrel for the 10mm but didn't know anyone made one for the 45 ACP.

    Glockman10mm - I am trying to find something for him to utilize that is not punishing on recoil. Dad's a Korean War Era Vet in his mid-80's (and still working on his farm!). I was thinking of the G21 since it is not really bad as far as recoil impulse goes. My alternative was to try and rig up a 20 gauge for him that he could keep on the tractor and use buck shot. Thoughts?

    GhostMaker, I think a 22 magnum in the Henry rifle might just be the best option for him. It's got plenty of punch, and is easy to make head shots with.

    That was a good look wasn't it!

    Here's on source for an extended barrel. I presume the longer barrel is to squeeze a little more velocity and energy out of the round.

    Lone Wolf Distributors - Product Detail - LWD Barrel M/21L 45 ACP 6" Length - $124.95

    Of course, nobody has one in stock - as so typical these days

    There's a huge difference in trying to tote around a shotgun and a handgun. The G21 is pretty soft shooting for a .45 ACP; it shouldn't be, but it is.

    Tangle - Thanks for the link. If and when LWD gets one in I might have to get one to tinker with.

    Glockman10mm & Tangle - With his advanced age I might look at a 22 Maggie for him. Most of the time when I instruct folks I can find a workable solution to shooting concerns. However, most folks I deal with are decades younger. The biggest issue I have to work around for him is his grip strength, as he has had Carpal Tunnel surgery and he still feels its affects. The 22Mag may be the ticket as he will not me dismounted from the tractor for 99% of the time. Thanks to you both!!

    9mm through 150 pound hog. Shot through the right shoulder (on purpose to test the ammo) and stopped in the left shoulder.

    I have some Barnes TSX Balck Tip on the way for my 9" 300 Blackout. My preferred hog rifle is my 14.5" 5.56 with a bonded soft point or TSX, but to get a bit more energy and a heavier bullet from a barrel almost 6" shorter for use from the truck, I'm all for it.

    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe
