    Dude, I'm in! I have been dreaming of hog hunting lately. My dad has a Freedom Arms .454 and some nice ammo that needs a better work out than paper!

    I hunted feral hogs quite a bit in Texas before I came to Shanghai. It's been said in one or two of the threads on this subject that they are tough. I second that. I shot one through the shoulders with my 7mm-08 at about 100 yards, didn't kill him (mis-judged the shot), and went down to finish him off. This sucker was about 300 lbs (too big for really good eating). I popped him in the back of the head with my .45 ACP and all it did was make him mad. Scared the **** out of me when he tried to come around on me! Below and slightly behind the ear worked a whole lot better. (When I cleaned him, the .45 slug was lodged in the "armor" on his neck. Never even got through to the meat, much less any vitals.)

    Gotta be careful when you clean them and wash up REAL good afterward. Rinsing your hands and forearms with alcohol (the rubbing type) wouldn't be a bad idea. I had a buddy that got hoof & mouth from cleaning one.

    I say 300 lbs is too big for good eating, but it does make great sausage, especially mixed with deer. 90 to 150 lbs, even smaller, is about right for getting nice juicy chops and such.

    If you take one in warm weather, not a good idea, get the meat cooled down real quick.

    Now I want to go! I'm not coming back to the States for my next leave until July and that's too warm for a pig hunt. If you guys have any luck, PM me with the pictures - PLEASE!
