Great account! Does the .22 normally do the job on a hog?

I have shot more hogs with a 22 pistol than any other pistol. I have done a lot of trapping and I also can verify what James is Talking about with the growl. I had a smaller Boar ( 150LBS) do this and charge the trap and was trying to tear the thing up. I do not like to kill them in a trap! I would much rather remove them first, and keep them alive till later.
22s are for up close and personal. Think nearly point blank,, I have used 22 mags for 50yds and under but I am talking smaller hogs. James Hunts mega Hogs and a Big bore IS NEEDED. You get a full grown hog and things ARE DIFFERENT. It is much safer to go ahead and use the big bore for the coup de gras. Animals are just that, animals, they are trying to survive at will, and many times can do some strange things. Coyotes and smaller game that has been trapped will try to bite or lunge at you to protect themselves. Heck even deer can surprise you, if you think they are dead and are not.

Great story James. What a big ole nasty hog. Sounds like he needed one more from the big gun. Thanks for sharing your adventure with us and congratulations on another successful hunt.
