When I get home in November I am going wild hog hunting , does anyone know what a good weapon would be to knock em down. I have heard 30-30 and 12 gauge so far and lukcy enough I have both and if you know how to prepare it that would help too

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

Hi jeff am in tampa bay florida that is a can of worms lol 30-30 is great 12 gauge if it is a slug am told ( never tryed it) plus black power arms,the SKS/AK47 round is good.I got a SKS set up with a M4 stock big scope.
I saw a RANGER JOE show where the used a AR-15 in 6.5 ( they said) for hogs in florida and a 13 yr girl used it and got the hog ( good size).. not sure where your coming from but be safe have a great time when you do hunt and remember in florida lots of others shot at any thing :>(
I have not hunted in a long time as these people like to drink and smoke and fly while in the woods while hunting.......................................................TY

Hog Hunting

30-30 should work great. Shotgun only with slugs. I dumped 5 rounds of 00 buck into a pig here in texas, and didn't even slow it down. Picked it up after it was dead, and looked like a sprinkler. I was hitting, just didn't have the punch to drop it.
